"A British man pleaded guilty this week to stealing 40,000 pounds from an elderly neighbor and pretending to be in a coma for two years to avoid charges, authorities said. Alan Knight pleaded guilty after being charged with multiple counts of theft and making a false representation for gain .... Knight was arrested in 2012 for the alleged theft, a South Wales Police spokesman said. ... Knight delayed going to court by claiming to be a quadriplegic who had periodic seizures that left him in a comatose-state, police said. Since authorities were unable to get Knight in court, his trial was delayed until this week, police said. However, an investigation revealed that Knight had been faking his symptoms, police said."

Krugman and Amazon and antitrust

"Amazon’s capacity to create or to amplify buzz for a book did not descend upon it by happenstance, like rain falling from the sky upon a pedestrian unprepared with an umbrella or raincoat. The very buzz that Amazon generates for books is a product of Amazon’s own entrepreneurial efforts -- its creativity, its risk-taking, its investments, its skill at staying on top of the modern retailing world, its success at building enormous trust with consumers over the past couple of decades. Krugman, while conceding Amazon’s entrepreneurial greatness, nevertheless treats the capacity to create that buzz as something that somehow belongs, not to Amazon, but to the public -- or to any book publisher who believes that it is being mistreated by Amazon."

"Sometimes the only way to make your point is to keep repeating yourself. So it is when explaining why the law requires educational institutions that receive federal funding, like Ward Melville High School, to allow clubs such as the one formed by 17-year-old student John Raney in 2013. Students United in Faith meets to discuss faith and to plan charitable endeavors. Last year, Ward Melville officials sought to ban the club because of its religious character, but retreated after getting a letter from the Liberty Institute (dedicated to 'restoring religious liberty in America'). Near the beginning of this academic year, the school again moved to ban the club. Again, Liberty Institute intervened, threatening a lawsuit. Again, the school backed off." (10/22/14)

"With the sight of cops in Ferguson, Missouri and Boston resembling totalitarian warriors out of a stereotypical dystopian novel, many Americans have become alarmed at the apparent transition of law enforcement to a role as an occupation force. They also wonder where the police got the money to pay for it." (10/21/14)
