Short Points Disguised As A Blog Post

Am I the only one who finds a disconcerting irony in the fact that today marks the 10th anniversary of the US making torture part of its official policy and the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens birth?

Speaking of disconcerting ironies, the New York Times reviews Charles Murray's Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010.  The Right Side blog cuts and pastes a review as well.  Unsurprisingly, the Times and Right Siders appear to have read a different book.

While I was watching the Super Bowl, I was struck by the idea that the National Football League and corporate America share one common view:  they want educational institutions to provide them workers but they don't want to fully support the educational institutions.
