David Crisanti

Texas can get away with lowering taxes precisely because most other states don't follow suit. If other states did then Texas would not be as large a net recipient of inter-state migration and they wouldn't make up their lower revenue per capita by housing more people.

The Big Five oil companies -- Exxon-Mobil, Chevron, Shell, BP and Phillips -- may be hoping that the end of the world actually occurs on May 21. Then they can say proudly that they went out bloodied but unbowed.
