    At present, however, a person can be blissfully ignorant of how to locate Kenya on a map, but know to a metaphysical certitude that Barack Obama was born there, because he learned it from Fox News

    That sums it up perfectly for me. I'd really like to know how many "birthers" actually know where Kenya is.

    “Yes, the government will be somewhat inept,” he said brusquely, swatting aside one objection as a trivial statement of the obvious. “But the private sector is in general inept."

    Love this quote. I wish more people understood that.

    edit: I had to post that quote right away, but now that I've read the whole article, I'd say it is full of common sense. Nothing groundbreaking, but nice to see someone with so much money pushing for it. I particularly like his point about health research:

    Well, the success of the United States in medical research is really incredible. I mean, it’s phenomenal. We spend $30 billion a year of government money, and the private sector goes out and comes up with new drugs. It’s an industry that the U.S. is by far the leader in—creating wonderful jobs, great miracle cures—and that is working super, super well, but we spend more than all other countries put together.

    Government funded research is an underrated way of improving our economy and our world.

    First, I think this is great. If the descriptions of what happened are accurate, this definitely is a gang.

    Second, I posted with the the link to Slate's take on the story. They are both describing the same event, but while the Gawker story correctly says they are being charged as a gang, the Slate story just mentions the name of the law they are charged around and then uses the word terror and terroristic threats in the story and headline. Misleading and inaccurate in the name of generating page views. Not only a poor showing for Slate, this is also a good reminder to pay attention to what you read.

    Group of White People Toting Around Confederate Flags Will Be Prosecuted as a Street Gang

    A group of white Georgia men and women with an alleged penchant for displaying the Confederate flag while terrorizing innocent black partygoers was just indicted as a street gang—a creative charge that would triple the time they could spend in prison, if convicted.

    White people assume (probably correctly) that this will never happen to them.
