Geek correction of the week.

Daniel Radosh

Geek correction of the week. From Volokoh: "I referred to the German upper house as the Landsraad rather than the Bundesrat. The house represents the German states, y'see, and a German state is a Land. From there, my neurons blooped and grabbed information, not from the poli sci corner of my brain, but from the SF geek corner. The Landsraad is the aristocratic pseudoparliament in Dune." (Thanks to Todd Seavey for bringing this and all things nerdy to my attention.)
