Yet another hiring problem theory

The guys on the Freakonomics blog point to a study that shows that medical students who do their med school entrance exams on rainy days score 10% lower than students who interview on sunny days.  Maybe I need to add weather questions to the hiring surveys.

  1. Randy, been looking through some of your posts. Is there a post that puts forth your complete thoughts on the death penalty? I see it broached a couple of times but not an in-depth piece. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts. It's refreshing that your views are truly non-partisan. It's really irritating and unconvincing to find so many people who think that since they're, say, anti-death penalty (or pro-death penalty) they have to have X position on a host of other issues.
