Happy birthday, Duncan Black.
While we're celebrating this moment of comity, is there anything at all to object to in the following segment? The Breitbart boys are trying to blow it up, but generally I think there's a lot of sound advice in it. You can put that down to broken clocks and twice a day, or to whatever else you like, but all things considered there's a serious issue at work here.
I saw Richard Cohen say today, of Paul Ryan's budget, that it was:
...an Ayn Randish document whose great virtue is a terrible honesty. (We are indeed going broke.)If you think through the consequences of that, Mr. Farrakhan's warning has a different sound. If we have reached the days when the bipartisan blinders can't keep out that fact any longer -- that fact and all the consequences for our society that it portends -- he might not be too far wrong.
