Re: The Week in Blog: Weiner-Free Edition (Bill Scher & Kristen Soltis)

Jesus Christ, is Bill Scher such an authority worshiper that he couldnt cough up even the slightest bit of outrage over the SWAT team story? His response was beyond pathetic.

Re: The Aorta of Darkness (Conor Friedersdorf & Noah Millman)

Re Bankers vs. Paralegals: Unless you have an awful boss, being a paralegal is a relatively low-stress job with comparatively little responsibility. If a paralegal screws up, he may get fired, but...

Re: Science Saturday: Existential Angst and Twitter (Robert Wright & Carlo Strenger)

It's long been MY thesis that academics should be banned from any commentary on pop culture and What It All Means, and furthermore, should be jailed for making follow up suggestions about how "we"...

Re: Madison Syndrome (David Weigel & Daniel Foster)

Agreed, Dan's comments were very insightful and interesting and I plan to pass them off as my own at the earliest opportunity. And yes, the Right needs to do some serious educating on public sector...

Re: Values Added: American Muslim (Abdullah Antepli & Hussein Rashid)

I think Muslims would be more effective in their outreach if they focused on
1st Amendment issues; the curtailment of free speech is what I find most troubling.

When Comedy Central yanked the...

Re: Science Saturday: Gulping Down the Potion of Health

Please dont feed that Clay-dude, as he clearly has no data to offer, and his intellectual arsenal consists solely of new ways to call Razib a racist.

Re: Entrepreneurial Edition (Brad Feld & Paul Kedrosky)

High time that Bloggingheads featured some actual entrepreneurs, instead of the usual academics/think-tank theorists whose only success at job creation is hiring a cleaning lady. I especially enjoyed...

Re: What If? (Emily Bazelon & Hanna Rosin)

Totally agree with the earlier comment about foreign female heads of state. When I'm in charge, all these tedious feminists who currently whine about glass ceilings blah blah blah will be rounded up...

Re: Neither Stupid Nor Evil Edition (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Hmmm. You can't throw a rock in LA without hitting a plastic surgeon, so I'm not sure all doctors are as altruistic as you believe. We really need some private practice doctors to chime in here (NO...

Re: Neither Stupid Nor Evil Edition (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

Interesting comment about not wanting to be treated by a doctor who was only in it for the money. Why not? I come from a family of lawyers and they're ALL in it for the money and get great results...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Thursday, I think you're using marriage and sex interchangably. Everybody wants to sleep with the hot bartender, but does any woman want to marry him, if they could have the highly-paid lawyer...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

"Before, they would have more or less exclusive access to the top men. Now, while they still have access to those men, they have to share them with less attractive women.

Not so sure about that....

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Really interesting, if only there were more libertarian guys as charming as Will. But he and and Ms Hymowitz seemed to be talking past each other. I suspect its because they're referencing the...

Re: Special Glamorous Edition (Glenn Loury & Virginia Postrel)

I really like Virginia Postrel; she has the ability to see and articulate what everyone else misses. And she's one of the few she-libertarians who doesnt incite rage (i.e. Megan McArdle). Now if...

Re: No Pain, No Gain (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Re Michaels comments,
Yeah, you gotta wonder if some of these Bloggingheads even looked in the mirror before setting up their videocams. I suspect many take a perverse pride in being unkempt as...

Re: Science Saturday: The Words Edition

Re: Trying to Disagree (Michelle Goldberg & Dana Goldstein)

Re: Percontations: Who Owns the Words?

I dearly love Bloggingheads, but the only participant who even comes close to being "cool" is Christopher Hitchens. Cool-status requires having at least a few interesting vices; for your average...

Re: Interesting Times (Noam Scheiber & Megan McArdle)

I think Megan just forgot to wash off last night's mascara. Anyway, this was really interesting, and I'd love to hear from a "real" doctor with a private practice (not an instructor at a medical...

Re: Percontations: Your Brain and Your Genes

That was fun, especially the handy pick-up tips! I'd love to see these guys write a dating advice column based solely on genetic research.

Re: Salvaging Religious Spirituality

I wish Bloggingheads could dredge up a scientist who was also a believer to make a case; they do exist, but rarely have books to plug.
(Maybe grab an astro- physicist from SETI in Mt View, CA, lots...
