Re: Another Victim?

During my high school years, the family house was near the corner of Masonic and Frederick in the upper Haight. I was just graduating from high school in 1967, so I was too young to go to the...

Re: Another Victim?

I am also a "jazz-man" from the Bay Area, now living in France. I wonder how many times you and I might have been to the same event at Keystone Korner.

You didn't go to Lowell High School in...

I don't think so highly of myself, but I do hold badhat in very low esteem.

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

It's not a business error, ipso facto. But Bob's presumption is that intelligent comments directly below the video window will draw additional viewers. So I just question whether this is true. If...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Not to be contrary, look, but this approach is rather inelegant.

I have now posted in Disqus. It looks to me like the situation is as follows. Under vbulletin, there was the commenting world...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I have a suggestion, namely that commenters here look into finding a new webhost that uses vbulletin and that is either free or not very costly, something that we could keep going for a modest...

Re: Ask LBJ, To Rebut Paul

I think this blogpost of Stoller's is OK historically, but not very good analytically.

Here are some objections I have to the analysis.

First, there are plenty of contemporary "liberal"...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I heard Mark Shields say on the PBS "Newshour" today, after I posted, that Romney's camp is being particularly careful not to criticize Paul, because Romney is terrified of a third-party run by Paul,...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I'm reasonably confident that a third party run by Paul would draw more votes from the Republican candidate than from Obama, at least 60/40, I would think. I'm not a pollster, but it's not as though...

Re: The Bromance (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Glad to hear that the bromance will continue.

Glenn seemed very on edge in this episode, more so than usual. The problem, Glenn, is not that libertarianism receives too little attention in the...

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

Here is evidence. Use of that particular phrase engendered the anti-Semitism charge and evinced the names of W&M at the "Commentary" website. How much more evidence do you need? Now, Friedman is...

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

But there has been a consistent US policy since 1967 to oppose the West Bank settlements in word, but not in deed. 9/11 may have made imposition of leverage by the US more difficult, but then $4 gas...

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

All well and good, but what I said was that Friedman would not have put that sentence in his column about the Israel lobby pre-W&M. I was in the process of researching the truth-value of my...

Re: Mitt Romney speaks French, therefore he cannot be president

Florian, do you think Romney is "speaking French" in the video, or is he reading a teleprompter? I think he has studied some French and is reading a teleprompter. I have two reasons for thinking...

Yes, I'll grant that the Repubs are playing to the Christian Zionists. Fine. But I still think that if you take AIPAC and the rest of the hardline Jewish portion of the Israel lobby out of the...
