Hitler >> Lenin

April 16, 2004

On April 8th I posted that I was considering comparing Lenin to Dr. Frankenstein in the next class. Brad DeLong was amused and linked it, as did Matthew Yglesias.
I got about 130 hits and about 250 page views that day, a good hundred hits above average for the day. Lenin is worth 100 hits.

On April 15th I posted that earlier that day I had engaged in the guilty pleasure of reading Hitler speeches to the class. Brad DeLong was amused and linked it; Eric Muller was bothered and also linked it.
I got 652 visitors and 1012 page views that day, over 600 more visitors than is usual for a Thursday.

Clearly, Hitler's ability to draw web traffic is six times higher than Lenin's.

Next week we will spend more time with Stalin. If I write something that amuses Brad we might get a third data point.

(Or, at least Lenin and Hitler are)
