Most of the contributions to the website SleeveFace are nothing short of brilliant.

I think, however, that my personal favourite will always be this one.

Happy Birthday Two You!

And yes, dearly beloved - we are gathered here once more today in the sight of God to celebrate the fact that on 15 July this blog turned a whole TWO years old!

This year I am celebrating this important event with the repeal of a carbon tax. Please be upstanding for Kool and the Gang.

My stats since starting this blog in 2012:

97,954 page views - minus 601 vampirestat hits, of course
Most popular post: David Murray on the Continuing Crisis Redux (4292 views)
Second most popular post: The Best of Maggie (3436 views)
Most popular referring URL: Catallaxy (1769)
Most popular referring site: Quadrant (5795)

RePEALings ... Woh Woh Woh RePEALings ...

And now you too can thrill to the moment when we decided to grow up.

Now all we need is Section 18C, and perhaps a few other things, to go down the same path.

Ex Cathedra, Not Ex Chequer

Poor old Pope Francis. He's only infallible when he's teaching ex cathedra on matters of faith and morals.

And "matters of faith and morals" DON'T include economic theory.

But don't be too hard on him - there are very few Spanish translations available of good economic books like The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism, The Road to Serfdom and Victory of Reason.

And even if you sent him a copy, he wouldn't have time to read it.

Anyway, don't worry - the next Pope will be an economic rationalist and hardline capitalist. Promise.
