News & Opinion: Steven Levitt and Stephen Colbert
Monday night Steven Levitt was a guest on the Colbert Report. Colbert joked that he had bought Freakonomics but read Blink beforehand so only read it to get a "vague impression" of its subject. They then went on to chatting about names and how it affects a person's life. They concluded that while sharing the same first name, Stephen's name is ultimately better because his parents used the smart spelling. See it for yourself here. *Thanks to the cable watchers who send these links my way!
