"It wasn't our fault... Honest"

But we'll apologize anyway.

We're sorry about the lack of posts. Google's Blogger was down all day yesterday and managed to lose the posts from the day before (perhaps they objected to the Oedipus joke).

To add injury to injury, yesterday featured both the most blatant how-to-lie-with-statistics graph and the most embarrassing education-reformer-hypocrisy story of the year.

We'll be back up to speed soon.

Thanks for your patience.

Update: the missing posts are back but I'm afraid the comments may be gone for good. Once again, sorry.

    It still isn't ideal as the partitions are still pretty arbitrary but they make it really clear that the previous graph was highly misleading as to where tax revenue comes from.
