I don’t know when “conferencing” became a verb, but I guess I’m doing it all the same. I’m at the ASA Meetings in San Francisco, where the keynote speakers include well-known sociologist Paul Krugman. I’m off to the Economic Sociology Section reception soon, but I am nevertheless tempted by the Section on Alcohol Drugs and Tobacco reception. Meanwhile, the storm damage in Florida reminds me of the answer to the stupidest question in the world.
