Some free-will links

In a study, some students were primed to think there's no such thing as free will, and became more inclined to cheat on a math test. Ronald Bailey is skeptical about assumptions that justice and morality depend on free will. So am I, though in addition I'm skeptical about assumptions that there is no free will. I wrote about it here, as well as here, here and here. A mention of how I started caring about the subject is here, though for the record, the snowstorm was in Queens, not Manhattan.
