That Two-Nation Feeling
Topic: Society 9:11 am EST, Nov  7, 2004

I have read "Two Nations Under God." I wish to write you as a representative of the "other nation."

The Values-Vote Myth
Topic: Elections 1:16 pm EST, Nov  6, 2004

David Brooks takes a crack at debunking the Dems. This is one of a host of op-eds on this topic in the Saturday NYT.

Here are the facts.

There was no disproportionate surge in the evangelical vote this year. Evangelicals made up the same share of the electorate this year as they did in 2000.

There was no increase in the percentage of voters who are pro-life.

There was no increase in the percentage of voters who say they pray daily.

If you ask an inept question, you get a misleading result.

Bush did better this year than he did in 2000 in 45 out of the 50 states.

The red and blue maps that have been popping up in the papers again this week are certainly striking, but they conceal as much as they reveal.

The same insularity that caused many liberals to lose touch with the rest of the country now causes them to simplify, misunderstand and condescend to the people who voted for Bush.

The rage of the drowning man.

OK, Folks: Back to Work
Topic: Politics and Law 8:51 am EST, Nov  5, 2004

Democracy is a breeze during good times. It's when the storms are raging that citizenship is put to the test. And there's a hell of a wind blowing right now.

OK, Folks: Back to Work


Two Nations Under God
Topic: Elections 9:11 am EST, Nov  4, 2004

At one level this election was about nothing. None of the real problems facing the nation were really discussed. But at another level, without warning, it actually became about everything.

Alpha, meet Omega.

Nanotechnology featured in Dilbert
Topic: Humor 9:07 pm EST, Nov  1, 2004

Pointy-Haired Boss says: "I need to be managing a sexier project to boost my career."

Is your project as sexy as PHB's? Maybe you should think about trading up.

Update: This image is still viewable elsewhere.

Cleveland's Political Circus
Topic: Elections 9:26 am EST, Nov  1, 2004

We have been told repeatedly that "Ohio will decide the election!" and the responsibility is nerve-racking.

At first I tried to be civic-minded, and worked constructively to register college students. But by late September I was regularly overdosing on blogs, frequently whipped into a froth of outraged ranting.

I was not alone.

"It's like being asked out on a date by someone who secretly thinks you're stupid and ugly."

One Book, Two Book, Red Book, Blue Book
Topic: Elections 9:22 am EST, Nov  1, 2004

Consider this disturbing little dose of reality: Informal polls taken by Barnes & Noble store managers indicate that some 70 percent of customers say they have no intention of actually reading the political attack books that they buy.

One customer in New York said, "I'm buying this book because the author agrees with me."

The Old New Thing
Topic: Computers 12:19 am EST, Nov  1, 2004

Aside from partisans for the Macintosh, there are also many determined fans of a smaller, hand-held device who are so united in their devotion that they form a kind of secret society.

No, not iPod fans.

Newton fans.
