1)I feel like I should like this essay, but I don't. I mean, I loved my humanities education and wouldn't want to trade it for anything. I'd like other people to have the same experiences. But this program sounds like just so much annoying upper-middle-class hazing forced on otherwise competent people who had better things to do.
2)I like this post about Barack Obama and Elena Kagan. Yep, Kagan and Obama are both pretty much pure Girondins. Takes one to know one and so forth, I guess.
3)David Bernstein has an essay on anti-discrimination law at Cato Unbound that is superb.
