save some jobs; lose a lot more
Thanks for coming! I plan to post a lot of interesting articles and comment on a wide range of things-- from political to religious, from private to public, from formal writing on public policy to snippets on random observations.
Fidel, RIP? Probably not, unless there was a deathbed conversion. If so, he's found a relatively special place in Hell. Outside of accepting the grace of God, we are judged by our works. It's possible, but seems unlikely that Fidel accepted this Grace-- and does he ever have a big ol' pile of brutal works...
A critique of the ACA from the Left (in Harpers)...Reading the Left is valuable, because it reveals the difference between the Left and mere partisan Democrats. And those on the Left (or with sympathies for the Left) are more likely to be tolerant of a writer from the Left. (I'll link my review of Thomas Frank's book below-- as another recent example.)
