lt260 forwards this comment from Joe Haldeman on the bookless library — More here. Sigh. Am I just a dinosaur?

Massachusetts Marriage Still Doing Fine — The nation's lowest divorce rate after six years of gay marriage. Wow, marriage is certainly an institution under siege there.

More on the Obama "socialist indoctrination" scandal — Or, arrant and opportunistic Republican hypocrisy, documented example number 1,257,440 (or so).

The mainstreaming of crazyBad Astronomy Blog on the Obama school speech kerfuffle. He says it better than I could, including: I'm tired of ignorance held up as inspiration, where vicious anti-intellectualism is considered a positive trait, and where uninformed opinion is displayed as fact. Conservative discourse has gone beyond self-parody in this age of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, yet the conservative viewpoint is still the lede on tv talk shows and news broadcasts.

Obama and the Bureaucratization of Health Care — Speaking of the conservative lede, here's the Wall Street Journal with Sarah Palin. The stupid, it burns. Just for a start, it's not like health care isn't overbureaucratized now. Look at the percentage of private healthcare dollars that go to overhead, versus public healthcare dollars (ie, Medicaid).
