BEST: Privatization of water is GOOD -- in which I slap down some weak claims that it is not. See if you agree.
Elephants on their desks -- SoCal and Vegas want more supply; what about reducing demand?
BEST: Corruption in Context -- a good overview of corruption in water infrastructure. Speaking of that, Travelblog: Jakarta -- what "fail" looks like in the developing world.

BEST: Priests and Programmers -- The Review -- a great book on local irrigation management in Bali.
