“Authentic Sensibilities”

Everyone’s just gonna have to take my word for this:

I started writing this column before Gavin McInnes put out this (delightful) video.

No, something purely coincidental prompted me this week: An excerpt from a new book by Andrew Hartman, called A War for the Soul of America: A History of the Culture Wars, appearing in a publication I was previously unfamiliar with.

    The same pic could be shown for Paul Krugman. He won his Nobel for his technical work on international trade. But since he won the award (it has gone to his head?), his columns in the New York Times have degenerated into an hominem rants, pieces barely literate (the NYT like hard-left rants).One can only shake one’s head at how writers can decline so much.

    • Krugman rarely remembers to turn on his brain.

      Opening line of Loudon Wainwright’s song about Krugman:

      “I read the NY Times it’s where I get my news
      Paul Krugman’s on the op-ed page that’s where I get the blues
      Cause Paul always tells it like it is we get it blow by blow
      Krugman’s got the Nobel prize so Krugman ought to know”

      Indeed, David, Krugman is hard to take even in small doses.

    So far as Google (and I) know Chomsky has never been awarded the Nobel.

    Chomsky in stock market

    “A look at the stock fund portfolio quickly reveals that it invests in
    all sorts of businesses that Chomsky says he finds abhorrent: oil
    companies, military contractors, pharmaceuticals, you name it”
