Re: Flugelhorn Edition (Conor Friedersdorf & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

Katherine Mangu-Ward thinks she never considered being a teacher because it sucks? Too bad she doesn't know what she's talking about. I had more freedom to innovate during my years teaching high...

Re: Turkey Day Edition (Corby Kummer & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

John, I grew up in Los Angeles and have since lived in Texas, Virginia, and New York, and I have to say - thanks for saying you speak only from experience.

Re: Idolatrous Edition (Mark Schmitt & Tim Noah)

I find it a little ridiculous that an opinion writer on a meta-site like Bloggingheads.tv has such a big problem with this rally. For one thing, his suggestion that the people who are going to...

Re: Magic Asterisks (Daniel Drezner & Megan McArdle)

Ugh, Bloggingheads, COME ON. A diavlog half about undergraduate education between a tenured professor who hasn't taught undergrads in 5 years, and someone who went to college 20 years ago?

Re: Big Government Libertarianism (Glenn Loury & Jim Pinkerton)

Maybe it's because they're not scientists, but I'm completely baffled by Glenn and Jim's feeling that people without jobs don't need more education. Every increase in education corresponds to a...

Re: Stop and Smell the Aqua Buddha (Dana Goldstein & Katherine Mangu-Ward)

The American school day and year are on the short side, compared to other countries.

Re: Things Learned From Reading Every Single Word of the Bible

I think of Catholics like myself as some of the worst Bible scholars ever... but the story of Jonah came up in the mass schedule just a few months ago and it came across with all the wit and insight...

Re: Speechwriters on Obama's Speeches

"Bringing slaveholding America back into the story..."

Classy. I think those of us who learned, back in high school, how to value the Southern founding fathers for their attempts at creating...

Re: The Week in Blog: Government Dirt

I agree with Conn that I don't remember "Liberals Gleeful over Abramoff" headlines, but the "Conservatives Gleeful..." headings seem only as annoying as "Liberals Chafe at Obama Cabinet..."

Re: Welcome to the Jungle

"hunter gatherer societies suck"

Re: The Week in Blog: Pesci vs. De Niro

The idea that the American auto industry is failing because of high-wage union jobs seems pretty crazy to me.

I've never bought an American car for two reasons:
1) Every one I know who owns one...

Re: Obama: The Opera

"McCain has dedicated his life to service of his country; Obama happily joined a congregation which espoused the destruction of his country."

That's funny, I sort of feel like the Republican party...

Re: Superbama vs. McHulk

I'm really grossed out by Ann talking about "drafted women" as these people who would just be a drag on the military - as if they would be so much more useless than drafted men. Her view of the...

Re: Breaking the Narrative

Wow guys, please don't talk about "Western Values" if you aren't from the West and don't know what western values are. And please don't assume they're reflected by Alaska, jeez.
