    The train *line* delivers many students to and from school (and some other people doing other things, but it’s still only two passenger cars long) There’s a particular stop whose only regular passenger is that one high school student, and which will close right after that student graduates (& it’s unclear if that was planned or just fortuitous)Report

    1. Ms. Conly’s editorial left me unimpressed. Malthusian enthusiasts have never been right and you can not and should not justify massive human rights violations on an erroneous theory. China’s Family Planning Policy has caused a massive gender imbalance in the Chinese population that has led and will lead to some rather serious social problems because they are going to have a rapidly aging population and tens of millions of bachelors who have no chance at even a casual romantic relationship. Reducing millions of people to perpetual singleness seems like a bad idea.

    3. Hanley posted the 3-D printed rhino horn argument on Facebook months ago. I’m doubtful if it would have any positive effect. Rhino horns are luxury and status goods. People are going to want the real thing and will pay dearly for it.

    Amazing the seemingly (individually) penny-ante corruption that such highly placed people are apparently willing to get involved in.Report
