    (and for the first and last time, journalists can’t spell, it’s not novel writing, no one who is tweaked about ninnying the English language even works in the industry anymore)

    And I don’t think you can have discourse about what is wrong with education and print journalism without offending everybody. It’s out there, and it’s obvious, but people are going to use the “affront to dignity” motion to have certain facts excluded from the argument.

    Let’s see, I don’t think I have any at all. But then again, I think the overwhelming power of my whitebread middle-classedness might have lifted them out of poverty so fast it seemed like they were never there at all.

    On the whole, I think the Freakonomics guys said most of what needed to be said about the matter, (namely, you’re whether by nature or nurture, people (statistically speaking) are a lot like their parents)).
