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

One idea for regulating the comments that might also enhance the sustainability issue would be to do what the Ricochet site does and charge a nominal sum for the privilege of commenting (it's about...

Re: Values Added: Winter Is Coming (Michelle Goldberg & Conn Carroll)

Incredibly distracting background audio at various points in this diavlog. Time to include a clause in the contract specifying that "diavlogger will find a quiet place free of distractions to record...

Re: The Postmodern Sex Scandal (Dana Goldstein & Amanda Marcotte)

Ms. Marcotte's verdict on L'affaire Weiner is "Don't reward the bad behavior" (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/36770?in=07:48&out=07:51)—and therefore Weiner should not resign his seat. How does one...

Re: A Lot of Vibing (Robert Wright & Matt Welch)

Bob's confidence in an assemblage dominated by autocracies in which China and Russia exercise a veto over any military action is baffling; perhaps accounted for by its hostility to Israel?

Re: Rave On (Robert Wright & Ann Althouse)

Bob's readiness to give Pres. Obama every benefit of every doubt while denying any benefit of any doubt to his predecessor is truly remarkable. At the end of the day, he's a well-read (and, in...

Re: Michelle's tame bit of snark that unsurprisingly made the usual suspects go crazy

I commented concerning a specific claim, that criticism of the India trip was suspect as racist in motivation; I made no global claims about the Left or the Right. I'll acknowledge that some...

Re: The Place for Love (Dan Drezner & Megan McArdle)

Re: Science Saturday: A History of the Science of Altruism (Oren Harman & Mark Borrello)

Fair enough on the attribution of motive, but the comment (however badly phrased) was in fact meant to help; I have to fight a similar habit, and I realized it was a problem my third year of teaching...

Re: Science Saturday: A History of the Science of Altruism (Oren Harman & Mark Borrello)

Very interesting dialogue. Altruistic note to Prof. Borrello for future on-camera discussions: Don't interrupt your dialogue partner so often (esp. "Right" every three seconds); the viewer can tell...

Re: Fixing Our Broken System (Lawrence Lessig & Ezra Klein)

Yep, a huge piece of liberal legislation fails to pass on a partisan basis owing to unpopularity reflected in three statewide elections in blue territory (or that Obama turned blue), so this must...

Re: Science Saturday: Religiosity's Phylogeny (Razib Khan & Nicholas Wade)
