  • // Movie. Didn't recieve a wide release, and as a horror-thriller film it falls short. But iit's a great film for psych students, showing, accurately, what schizophrenics suffer through.
  • Quote:"The opposition to Bennett is specific, and can't be chalked up to a general anti-incumbency fervor. Neither of Utah's two Republican congressmen are at risk of losing their seats, and Republican Gov. Gary Herbert doesn't have any serious challengers.

    Bennett is under fire for voting to bail out Wall Street, co-sponsoring a bipartisan bill mandating health insurance coverage and for aggressively pursuing earmarks.

    Some delegates, who tend to me more conservative than other Utah Republicans, also are upset he's still in office after initially promising to only serve two terms when he first ran for office in 1992.

    // And whenever an incumbent has a challenge from the right, we should make sure there are specific grievances.

  • Quote:"In reality, $500 is $500. If you wouldn't normally spend that much on a television (or any product, for that matter), you shouldn't do it now. We've been fooled by "anchoring": the illogical, but nearly inescapable, tendency to base our estimates of value on the nearest number we see, rather than an independent assessment. Just because the tag has $800 crossed out and replaced by $500, that doesn't mean $800 was a meaningful price. Indeed, an MIT experiment revealed that students who wrote down the last two digits of their Social Security numbers based their estimates of a wine bottle's worth on those two random numbers. The higher their numbers, the more the students were willing to bid for the wine.
