I spoke to over a dozen former FBI agents for this story. Many wanted to stay off the record, but the message was broadly the same: agents are human. They are allowed to have political beliefs. And many were confused by Strzok’s abrupt demotion. “He’s been thrown to the wolves.”

I gotta wonder how much of this stuff is parody.

Complaints about “bubbles” are about 4 distinct phenomena: absence of common core culture, increasing political tribalism, declining standards of debate, and narrowed awareness of life outside a slim class/racial/political cohort. Watching both MSNBC and Fox ain’t gonna cut it.

I’ve been an academic for a long time-started grad school almost 30 yrs ago-so it’s old hat to me. But certainly have been talking about it more recently.

ICYMI wrote a brilliant piece on intersectionality, subjectivity, and why college students don't think critically. "Skepticism or demands for evidence are not only a personal affront but an example of the oppressive system at work."

I commend the author of this article for flaying 's idiot inquisitors. There is indeed idiocy in higher ed. That having been said, the congressional GOP has declared war on US higher education, 1 of our shining accomplishments. We should tread carefully.

The point is that there are contextual effects that may be driving higher homicide rates among Blacks with higher incomes, rather than any individual differences. /end

Here's an older scholarly paper that may seem off topic, but hear me out (I'm sure there's more relevant research, but I'm lazy). /2

Thank u for these data. I was aware of IQ research, but not this. I believe it, but point out that individual $ is only part of the story. It's also important to consider neighborhood & context. /1

This essay generator is amusing. Younger folks might not remember that 20 years ago a physicist actually published such nonsense in a postmodern journal, as a troll:

In just the past two weeks postmodernism has emerged on Twitter as a vile threat to all we hold dear. It's indeed vile, but too dumb to actually be a threat. Moreover, very few college faculty are actually postmodernists. But sadly, those few are often shrill.

I’m struggling to see the nascent fascist in, say, the Clinton presidency, or the New Deal. Little help?

At the Starry Plough to see the great Mr. T Experience, & amused to see that some lamentable Berkeley stereotypes die hard. Doubly: there are two Che posters here. Cc
