Re: Be Seeing You (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Who said anything about "regulating the comments?" In fact Bob said they're going to be open to an even wider group of "outsiders."

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Funny, if you search for Amy Wax or Wax, Amy in the BHTV db, her name comes up as a participant, but it says there are no diavlogs with her, "no results."

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I never fathomed that BHTV would go in this bizarre direction. I guess I was completely off-base in my assumptions about what this site was all about.

It appears that everything that I enjoyed...

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

All I'm saying is, his explanation doesn't make sense.

Vitriol and hysteria? Is that the same as not kissing Bob's ass and making excuses for the terrible technical problems?

Is there any...

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

All of these excuses point to the main problem with the BHTV set up: the participants are not listening to the audio that we will hear, they are listening to the phone. Those of you who are making...

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Thanks, but it's a stretch to compare the transition of BHTV from a diverse forum to the Bob Wright show and the transition of two packed commercial airliners into missiles that killed 3000 people.

Re: Worldwise: Elections in Egypt (Robert Wright & Shadi Hamid)

Looks like Bob isn't really having any trouble teaching people how to use a webcam and mic. So why did he say that was the reason that he's turning this into the Bob Network?

Too embarrassing to...

Re: Dunkirk (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Wonderful to see Kaus again. Too bad Wright wasted 1/3 of the show hemming and hawing about his failed project. And even with all that time spent talking about himself and the site, we never even...

Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

If you can't do any better than that, I give it to...

Re: Any bipartisan support to make govt. more opaque to its citizens = bad idea

I couldn't agree more. I wonder what would happen if I tried to take this video I shot of a road block, years ago, today. Chicagocops.com (http://chicagocops.com)

Re: Values Added: Occupy, Inc. (David Roberts & Julian Sanchez)

You're begging the question by calling it "police brutality."

Resisting arrest isn't a peaceful demonstration. If these people had any guidance or knowledge about how to hold a peaceful protest,...

Re: Fallacy

But they aren't chanting, "You are the 1 percent!" They're chanting, "We are the 99 percent!"

Sounds to me, from what I'm hearing from them, that they are attempting to speak for the 99 percent...

Re: Values Destroyed: The Fringe Edition

Especially since the Tea Partiers would have been getting pepper-sprayed for no good reason, considering that they, you know, didn't need to be maced.

Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)

Re: Values Added: Rootin' Tootin' Edition (Amanda Marcotte & Erica Grieder)

Amanda thinks they planned this when Obama was in Hawaii to avoid having him take the mayor(s) to task for clearing out their parks? Can someone explain why we're listening to this woman?

Re: Values Added: Special Shame Edition (Ann Althouse & Glenn Loury)

I love John McWhorter, but this pairing is much more fun and interesting. I hope we see more of these two together.
I wonder how an Althouse/McWhorter diavlog would go.

Re: Science Saturday: What Will Power the Future? (Maggie Koerth-Baker & Christina Agapakis)

Re: Values Added: Capitalism and Its Discontents (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Such a typical, simplistic thought. I wonder if people who say this are just new to thinking or if they have insulated themselves so well that they've never had to face the flaws in this thinking.

Isn't it possible that the gap is a sign that we're welcoming in a constant stream of poor immigrants? How are we supposed to close the gap when we want to be open to those who come here for a better...
