From LRC
  • Annoying words — the kind Paul Fussell describes and that I’ve dedicated much of my career to purging from print — and common knowledge (democracy good, mediæval bad). From Joe Sobran.
  • Race talk a red herring. Students clustered in groups of their own choosing are not terrified men and women fleeing dogs and police batons. The victims are black, brown and white. And they’re not where they are because we don’t talk enough about race in this country. They’re there because we don’t talk enough about the state.
  • The biggest Ponzi scheme.
