Pertinax and Surfing

Tom W. Bell has two outstanding posts up at Agoraphilia. The first deals with the property rights of surfing. He gives a positive account of how ocean waves are initially homesteaded, used, transferred, and shared - rights that are enforced through social norms.

Tom then gives career advice to the Governator based on the historical account of Roman Emperor Pertinax's short reign and unworthy death.
