comment is free

Comment is free is pretty cool. It's hosted by the Guardian but David Boaz (libertarian) and Bill Emmott (last editor of The Economist) are regular posters, Bill Emmott even responds to some of the comments! Real bloggy like!

Here's a good post by Boaz and here's the best bit:
Take a rapidly growing part of a county or a school district -- the newspapers will be full of stories about how difficult it's going to be to build enough schools there, and how it takes five years to plan a new school, and how the county should limit growth and encourage people to live in areas that already have schools. But you don't see any stories about how difficult it will be to create grocery stores or video stores: businesses just go build them.
