Re: Fearless Predictions (Heather Hurlburt & Daniel Drezner)

These are getting to be EXTREMELY sad for longtime fans. I really hope that Mr. Wright's update commenter klatsch gives a little more cause for optimism.

Re: Social Norms

I largely agree that we should not complain about people following their own bliss and naturally sorting themselves into fields of study. EXCEPT for the fact that we may be missing some lowhanging...

Re: Values Added: Perrytastic Edition (Amy Sullivan & Sarah Posner)

Re: Values Added: Perrytastic Edition (Amy Sullivan & Sarah Posner)

Re: Values Added: Religion, Sex, and Power (Amanda Marcotte & Michael B. Dougherty)

Re: Monkeys and Cocaine Edition (Mark Schmitt & Jim Pinkerton)

Filmed too early, but I hope we hear Pinkerton apologize soon for saying on the basis of zero evidence, that the long-form birth certificate is hiding great embarrassment for the president.

Re: Frontiers of Medical Science

Buffalo, NY, is already there. The only economic vibrancy of any kind is the medico-hospital complex. The answer, for me, is throwing open the doors of immigration, to hardworking people of all...

Re: Communitas: The Carceral State (Vesla Weaver & Heather Mac Donald)

Re: All Kinds of Sermons (Robert Wright & Glenn Loury)
