Uptick in antipathy toward Muslims

The Fort Hood shooting should really be included in possible reasons for changing attitudes toward Muslims. This shooting and the way it was handled did more to alter American perceptions of Muslims...

Re: Congress

I am on the fence if military action in Libya is for the best.

What infuriates me is all the gushing over international approval when our own citizens -whose lives will be risked and money used...

Both sides have valid points

I policed Bedstuy, E.NY & Coney Is. for 20 yrs. Have yet to see a study on the problem of crime families. In my experience the majority of worst offenders are usually members of extended crime...

Re: The Week in Blog: Take a Breath (Bill Scher & Conn Carroll)

I probably agree with Carroll 90% of the time, but do not find him to be a great debater. More riled up than mean is what comes across to me. Effectively arguing ones point of view in a pleasant...

Re: Mental illness

Based on the interviews with those he attended at college, this was not a situation that sports could have helped. Severe mental illness requires drug therapy - not always effective. But this guy...

Mental illness

Both Schmitt & Foster admit that Loughner is mentally ill then go on to discuss political rhetoric and gun control. Why is there no discussion of the root problem- mental illness and our failure to...

Re: Better With Age (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

A Kaus/Wright diavlog is always wonderful. The joy they take in goading each other never fails to amuse. Can you imagine these two living in the same building rather than opposite ends of the...

Unions advocate against members

SEIU lobbies on behalf of illegal immigrant community - their workers are some of those most at risk should a vast number of illegal's gain legal status.

Re: Choose Your Own Adventure (Adam Serwer & Dayo Olopade)

Wow, Olopade has psychic ability. Able to see into the mind of the black conservative and discern who is honestly expressing their beliefs and who is not.

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

Antepli speaks of how varied Islam is. Fair enough. I for one would like to see some formal lines of separation drawn within the faith. Not just Sunni vs Wahabi but based on degree of...

Re: Counterterrorism in America (Heather Hurlburt & David Schanzer)

Do you approve of the Comedy Central still refusing to air South Park episode 201 over fears of violence.

Every article I have seen on this Koran burning calls for it to be canceled. Have not...

Re: Mosque

Nothing to do with credibility of argument, just surprised to see it labeled as a clear right/left issue when in personal conversations that has not been the case at all. NBC poll found 52% of NYC...

Re: Mosque

I am surprised Bill Scher sees the mosque issue as so firmly right vs left. I know quite a few hard core lefties in the five boros who are not happy about this mosque being built. The no build crowd...

Re: Should Everyone Go To College? (Dana Goldstein & Robert Lerman)

The question is what type of salary difference are you talking. The average college loan debt is over $20,000 with many owing much more. Also since college is now pushed so - the same jobs that...

Re: The Other N-Word (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Interesting discussion on dialect. McWhorter states black English is just as coherent as standard English, which he then seems to equate with Baltimore ghetto English. I have never been to the...

Re: Domestic Violence

I am not upset that Mrs. Woods was not arrested. What I am disgusted with is the double standard which you highlight by emphasizing that she is the mother of two young children, isn't he the father...

Re: Science Saturday: Denialism (Michael Specter & Chris Mooney)

I am not anti-vaccine, nor do I advocate going unvaccinated. However, the idea that a tiny percentage could react negatively to MMR does not seem outlandish to me. Penicillin is a life saver yet...

Re: Science Saturday: Denialism (Michael Specter & Chris Mooney)

Your correct, but there are studies showing a possible link and research is supposedly ongoing. So while I would vaccinate, someone with autism in the family choosing not to is understandable to me.

Re: John Horgan - How scientific

Fine example of critical thinking and analysis by John Horgan. Based on a poll of one he is able to declare the British Medical system superior to that of the USA.
