This is a momentary lapse in my self-imposed blogging hiatus. Sometimes, something comes along that is just too great to let pass. Witness Blognut - a blog devoted to the single greatest food in the history of civilization: the Donut!

Yes, I've blogged donuts before (here and here and here), but my intermitent commentary could never do justice to the sweetest of sweet the way Blognut does.

Priorities Revealed

The World Bank World Development Indicators CD-ROM contains no data series for:
