Politically Incorrect Linkorama
Is diversity training a sham? It wouldn’t surprise me at all. But I’d never admit it in print.
OK, I’ll admit it. I read this article because someone linked it up as an article about strippers. But, if you can get by the author’s decolletage, it’s a very fascinating article about how Massachusetts law is making life more difficult for strippers in the name of helping them. (It also confirms that my acquaintance who stripped her way through college and into law school was not unique. And no, she was a friend of a friend. I didn’t meet her in a professional context.)
I’m cooking up a post, not sure for which site, that would infuriate my old feminist philosophy professor. It may be a while, but I’ll link up this story, about the myth that sex slaves are pulled in for sporting events. What’s amazing is how many members of the religious right and feminist left will respond to this story with dismay — i.e., they’ll be disappointed that there is not a severe sex slave problem that they need to agitate about.
Was our War on Fat misguided? I find this especially interesting given an article I read last week about scientists mis-using statistics. We’ve seen this pattern from the Food Grabbers. Ten years ago, we all had to substitute trans fats into our diet. Now we have to get rid of them. Ten years from now they’ll be back. Personally, I think our evolved bodies are too kludgey for strict dietary rules.
Speaking of bad science, this sounds like hand writing analysis for the 21st century.
OK, enough political incorrectness. Back to plain old BS.
Ireland is cutting bureaucrat pay to balance their budget. There is no chance such a thing could happen in this country.
The massive epidemic of bad public defenders seems a case of being penny wise and pound foolish. A competent defenders would keep innocent people out of prison and keep appeals from dragging out, saving money in the long run.
Hugo Chavez takes Sean Penn’s advice and arrests the owner of the last free television station in Venezuela.
I can’t stand Ann Coulter. But I find the Canadian restrictions on free speech even more offensive.
