Blogroll Changes

I’m committed to making the blog roll more manageable. To that end, I’ve pulled 3 blogs that are now defunct, and added one:


Vox EU — a policy portal set up by the Centre for Economic Policy Research ( in conjunction with a consortium of national sites, including the Italian site LaVoce  (, which provided inspiration for the idea and help from the start; the French site Telos (; and the Spanish site Sociedad Abierta (

    Where’s the new site design that I think I remeber you talking about? This is a great site for information, I’m very glad you’re doing it, but I have to say that it’s way, way too busy IMO.

    How about fewer colors, and toning-down the master head to start. I’m only mentioning this because I like this cite and would like to see it continue to grow. Right now it looks like a child’s room exploded all over it.

    Thanks for the work you do.

    A moment of silence has been observed for the Herb Greenberg Marketwatch blog.

    Now if that “Greenberg-Meritz” coming soon logo would ever actually materialize….

    I am a regular reader of and I can say that is an exceptional site. One has, on this site, the warranty to find the most stupid ideas and analysis of the universe.

    Believe me
