-- Although you might think that a platform that permitted instant reaction, mass commenting and immediate relaying of other's comments in a maximum of 140 characters would promote thoughtful reflection and measured, considered response to events or statements and highlight the consensus of a community, the Pew Research Center released a survey this week that suggests you'd be wrong if you did.

-- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is worried that NYC's homeless will have to compete for shelter bed space with rich people. I concur; Michael Bloomberg is a very rich man and I don't think making homeless people sleep in the same room with him is very good for their chances at finding useful ideas to get out of homelessness.

-- Mark Steyn: "The same bureaucracy that booked Samira Ibrahim for an audience with the first lady and Anwar al-Awlaki to host prayers at the Capitol now assures you that it's entirely capable of determining who needs to be zapped by a drone between the sea bass and the tiramasu at Ahmed's Bar and Grill." (The links within the quote were added by me.)

-- We want you to respect everybody's right to think for themselves and be whoever they want to be, so we're going to make you take a course on how you have to do that in order to graduate.
