« Teaching | Main | 'Hard science' suggests poverty DOES affect school performance »

April 16, 2009


I loved your first two paragraphs.

But since when is rescuing an American citizen from kidnappers "gunboat diplomacy?"

And kidnapping is not "karmic"; it's criminal.

Oy. If Obama is "Lincolnesque", then Lincoln's record needs to be more carefully critiqued.

The hypocrisy necessary for cheerleaders for U.S. kidnapping (rendition, Bagram, etc.) to point fingers at Somalis requires no comment. When we stop committing our crimes, we will have a right to criticize others. (Of course, the Golden Rule is an extremist ideology, isn't it?)

This article is very usefull for me! I can see that you are putting a lots of efforts into your blog. I will keep watching in your blog, thanks.
