Re: Norse Mythology Edition (Mark Kleiman & Will Wilkinson)

Althouse doesn't want to be Saved

Re: The Arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (Emily Bazelon & Farai Chideya)

If the condescending tone isn't intentional, you should be aware that it's there.

Regarding Clegg's analysis, it's hard to know where to start.

First off, I'll admit that being arrested in...

Re: Forlorn Wilderness Dwellers (Brink Lindsey & David Frum)

...Where "the left" means everybody who isn't a "true conservative". You keep drawing that circle more and more tightly, not realizing it's around the party's neck.

Bowing, Scraping, Kissing the Ring

I disagree. Politely engaging with service workers is a denial of status-disparity. Bowing is the opposite.

Whatever little wins bowing to a foreign leader might get you, (respect, politeness,...

Re: What's on a Man's Mind?

Yeah, Alterman botched the letter and spirit of the that Mill quote. The saying in question leaves ample room for the likes of Reihan.

Re: Science Saturday: Mind Reading

Nutshell Clip

It's like a scene out of an old superman, when the nogoodnik is cornered and helpless. Out of sheer desperation, he throws his spent pistol at the man of steel.
