Mischief in the WSJ

Two delightfully mischievous columns in the WSJ today. First, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney implicitly rebukes current Canadian prime minister (sort of) Chretien. Mulroney chides countries that don’t support current U.S. pre-emptive policies i.e., Canada.
Second bit of mischief-making from Gregg Easterbrook, who has been in the news for his recent comments about Michael Eiser, Miramax, and the violence in the movie Kill Bill. In his WSJ column Easterbrook eulogizes Garett “Tragedy of the Commons” Hardin, who recently took his own life. But Easterbrook argues along the way that Hardin was badly wrong about his basic contention, that humanity was about to overrun the earth.
