The Skeptical Liberal: Killer Whales & Sweet Peas

The Skeptical Liberal

How can we live together in peace, prosperity, and harmony, while retaining our liberties as autonomous individuals who can, and must, create our own values? -- J.M. Buchanan


Killer Whales & Sweet Peas

Never thought you'd see those two words in the same title, eh!

We arrived back in Bozeman yesterday. Today I biked 14 miles in the morning, worked at PERC (finalized the publication version of the paper on the Simon-Ehrlich bet referred to in an earlier blog posting), went swimming, attended a seminar at PERC on noise pollution for orcas (killer whales) in the straits between Washington state and British Columia, and then attended the first events of the Sweet Pea Festival here in Bozeman.

The seminar on orcas was one of the graduate fellows' last seminars (the other four will come next week), and was interesting. We've discussed the problem before, but now had a chance to see the final proposal (although there will probably be a significant change before the final version, after the conversation today).

The Sweet Pea Festival opened with Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, live in the park. We stayed awhile and then wandered around the tents. Saw some interesting work by the artists at Then the Subdudes played. Some of my friends at Augustana had a band called the Subdudes, and I knew that another band had the same name. They were good; lots of fun to dance to.
