    I understand the BLS SOC codes, but I have absolutely no idea what connection Econominst != Statistician could possibly have to do with that column about ultimate frisbee.

    Nice article about ultimate frisbee, though. (Thanks to the commenters for enlightening me, I had no idea what was going on. Look forward to seeing what the correct link is …)

    I presume our host plays ultimate frisbee and does not consider himself an economist?
