1. Paul Krugman is a bitter little man. Mankiw doesn't respond in much detail, but does respond.
2. Despite the fact that yesterday was July 4th, it was a terrible week for freedom in Pennsylvania.
3. Vivek Wadhwa discusses whether Bill Gates or Steve Jobs was correct on education.
4. On a more personal ... On Wednesday our family went to the drive in to see Monsters University. (See my post about Monster's U here.)
