I think I've coined a new term.
When the blogger or author is too busy to write new material he or she shall make an MRE Ration post by linking to others work. It will suffice, it will provide nourishment, but it isn't as good as a home cooked post made from scratch.
Ergo, here's your MRE lieutenants, economists, agents in the field, and children. It should stave off the hunger while I polish off the book. (though now the debate is whether Ace of Spades HQ - or any said linkee - will take umbrage to being an MRE post or appreciate the traffic ;)
