Back from Amsterdam

Back from a great and helpful conference in Amsterdam. Lots of interesting papers, a chance to reconnect with many European colleagues especially from Amsterdam and Tilburg, and lots of useful comments on the draft paper I presented.

Now I have to deal with jet lag.

And tonight, if I can stay up for it, do I watch the GOP debate, or the first game of the Miami Heat’s potentially interesting season? So far I’m leaning towards the basketball. The first two debates had enough hate and fantasy to hold me for a long while.

Politics Heat Up

Huffpo reports that among the NBA stars giving big $$$ to Team Obama are two Heat stars:

  • LeBron James ($20,000)
  • Shane Battier ($4,300)

I imagine that’s a larger fraction of Battier’s salary.
