...Oh My God. As further prep for my daughter’s ascent to high school, I have been reading Jeremy Iversen’s High School Confidential. Iversen is from a wealthy Manhattan family and missed the high-school experience, instead attending a tony boys’ boarding school. After graduating college, ...Read More...

As you get older, the world starts to pass you by. This is sad, but inevitable. The world — its manners and fashions, its demographic and geostrategic facts — changes steadily, but you don’t change much after you reach adulthood. I have expressed elsewhere the idea that at age 20, ...Read More...

 I have a review up of  Robert Spencer’s new book Religion of Peace?—Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t at Pajamas Media today. If Christianity is a religion of peace, while Islam is irredeemably militant, what on earth does Spencer think is likely to be the outcome ...Read More...

That the church lady has been arrested and is being "processed for deportation."  Note that this woman used to work, using a false Social Security number, cleaning planes at O'Hare airport.  Just the kind of work you want illegal immigrants doing, right? ...Read More...

Rudy's still my guy...  Regarding the NY City police report on radicalization of American Muslims, there were a couple of questions that, it seems to me, were left unanswered by the report. For example,  since these jihadist ideas originate in a foreign religion, Islam, why don't ...Read More...

Just checking in, 3 months on, on my mid-May argument that Al Gore will be the next POTUS.How is my prediction looking? Pretty darn good, I would say. Hillary gets smoother, more polished, and more "presidential." She's still a senator, though; she's still a Clinton; she's still a woman who ...Read More...

Yesterday I noted the kerfuffle over Scott Adams (the "Dilbert" creator) and his July 24 blog post about Mexicans. While declining to join the Dilbert boycott on the grounds that I don't much care what cartoonists think about politics, I added, in reference to Scott's post: "Still, as ...Read More...

Some readers may not be aware that Scott Adams, the guy who draws the Dilbert strip, has a lot less readers now than he had a month ago. There's a Dilbert boycott going on, because of a rather crass statement Scott made on his blog July 24. It's hard to talk about immigration without sounding ...Read More...

In today's Radio Derb, I pass some remarks about "quants"—i.e. quantitative analysts, the guys who do the heavy number-crunching in Wall Street's back offices. These guys generally (though by no means always—it's pure meritocracy on the quant floor) have a Ph.D. or two in math ...Read More...
