You are local news, I’m 60 Minutes:
- Dylan Matthews makes the good point that the possibilities for progressive policy making were much wider in the 1970s.
- More evidence that Martin Heidegger was a virulent Nazi and that Emmanuel Faye is a sloppy writer.
- At National Review, one can make an argument from authority on the effects of contraception citing Raquel Welch.
- Crime down despite economic downturn.
- More griping about the U.S. pavilion at the World Expo
- I can’t find it on TNR‘s website, but this is Leon Wieseltier from 2002: “Solidarity must not come at the cost of clarity. Only a fool could believe that the Passover massacre was a prelude to the extermination of the Jews of Israel; a fool, or a person with a particular point of view about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. If you think that the Passover massacre was like Kristallnacht, then you must also think that there cannot be a political solution to the conflict, and that the Palestinians have no legitimate rights or legitimate claims upon any part of the land, and that there must never be a Palestinian state, and that force is all that will ever avail Israel.”
