Superman has turned 75. Superman’s age will start mattering to me when there is at least a remote chance that he will get turned over to the public domain. Anyway, Superman is in his seventies, but the seventies were really awkward for Superman.

    I am shocked, SHOCKED that you didn’t mention this story from USAToday. It turns out that Maine is the most peaceful state and Louisiana is the least peaceful state.

    I wonder why that is. Maybe the cold makes people more peaceful…

    As for your actual links, Zuckerberg is firmly in the Gates camp. I happen to disagree with both of them. We have too many underemployed STEM majors here to be importing more of them.

      I think this is one of those areas where it’s worthwhile to delineate between “STEM” fields.

        Can you elaborate on this? Do you mean we should let in some categories of STEM and exclude others?

        • trumwill says:

          Yes, basically. Contra Half Sigma, we don’t have enough home-grown software developers, for instance, and unless we can ramp that up we do need to import them. The purely scientific majors (physics, chemistry, etc.), on the other hand, less so.
