Welcome a new RBC Blogger: Johann Koehler

The well-respected blog “The Phronetics” has merged with the Reality-Based Community

I have long been an admirer of Johann Koehler’s blog The Phronetics, which features thoughtful analysis of crime, economics and many other public policy and cultural issues. I am therefore happy to announce that Johann has agreed to come aboard here at RBC, bringing along his fine Cambridge-trained mind (now being further sharpened at UC Berkeley) and love of old movies to enrich our community.

Welcome to Johann!
