This is two weeks old but still pretty interesting: a Washington Post story on the impact of the human brain's tendency to think that "easily recalled things are true." Hat tip: Frank Pasquale.

  UPDATE: I should point out that the title of this post, "You Owe Me A Beer," is not accurate. If you're thinking, "hey, I owe Orin Kerr a beer," then that belief is false. I repeat: While you might be thinking that you owe me a beer, in fact you don't. You do not actually owe me a beer.
