First, this very nice turned phrase from Samizdata’s Quote of the Day: Intertwined with government hubris is shameless incompetence. Very nice. but this is but a portion of the entire quote which itself is but a portion of an entire article.
Next, from a single post at Ace’s place came two things to remember:
- a definition of Arcadianism: the idealization of a simple, unspoiled, non-technological way of life is nothing new;
- another Quote of the Day regarding the term “African-American”: it will eventually will become a racist slur
And from the blog Black and Right, an essay by a [white] teacher in a black high school (a repost from the rants and raves section from the Mobile, Alabama craigslist.). Not sure what to do with it, but it is an interesting read.
