Two Articles of Interest

In Finland's Footsteps: If We're So Rich and Smart, Why Aren't We More Like Them? from the Washington Post


Jefferson raid said to have netted cold cash from the New Orleans Times-Picayune

Both of these stories interest me because of personal connections - Long ago, I spent a summer in Finland (and agree with most of the author's observations) &, not as long ago, I did some political consulting for Jefferson (and am generally surprised, but not shocked).

I am unable to think of any other way in which these stories might in any way be connected.
