Tim May asks for more current oriented topics. I just came
across some delightful Slate columns by Steven Landsburg.

In http://www.slate.com/Economics/97-11-06/Economics.asp
Steve discusses the finding the unemployment coorelates with
home ownership. Is it because homeowners are less willing to
move to a new job?

Most of the rest of Steve's columns there are pretty good too.
