Dem Donkey

Since I was talking about the problem of inter-partisan anger yesterday...

...I thought it was worth pointing to a measured, reasonable article by a conservative, making an argument backed by data.

I bet there are a lot of things that Ron Unz and I would completely disagree about. But if you have somebody who's willing to defer to the data, and to admit that social dynamics are complicated, and he doesn't have all the answers, you can at least have a productive debate.

I'll have to browse his magazine a bit over the next week or two, to see if the signal-to-noise ratio is good enough to make it worth regular visits...
