Harry Reid’s praetorian guard

22 Jul

You, dear taxpayer pay, it seems, for two to three black SUVs that sit on the corner at 23rd and M Streets NW all day, everyday, to guard Senator Harry Reid when he is home, and convoy him to the Hill when he wants to lie on the Senate floor and oppress you.  

Did eastern establishment Jewish quotas create American political culture?

21 Jul
Here’s an research program for people working in American intellectual history:

Did quotas in elite eastern establishment universities in the 20th century shape American culture and intellectual life, especially politics and political economy?


Did limiting the number of Jews then (and perhaps Asians now), mean that those most likely to be allowed in for a limited number of slots available to their ethnic group at eastern establishment schools were slightly better connected, well healed, or assimilated (and therefore more likely to defend establishment corporate statist/crony capitalist/corporate socialist perspectives*), while the more working class/small business family, freshly immigrated, socially awkward, Jews (then, Asians now etc.) who were kept out of establishment universities by quotas ended up at elite schools without quotas (paradigmatically the University of Chicago) and were also more likely to be critical of establishment views, either from a libertarian or a more radical socialist, perspective?

The story behind ‘Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs’

Hey baby, I hear the blues a-callin’, 
Tossed salad and scrambled eggs 

Oh My 
Mercy (alt: Quite stylish.) 

And maybe I seem a bit confused, 
Yeah maybe, but I got you pegged! 
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha! 

But I don’t know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs. 
They’re callin’ again. 

(The following are alternate endings) 

They’re callin’ again. 
Good night, Seattle, we love you. 
What is a boy to do. Good night. 
Frasier has left the building. 
Thank You! 
Scambled eggs all over my face. What is a boy to do. Goodnight, everybody. 
See you next year, we love ya.
