Won’t Bow.  Don’t Know How.
David Simon’s new HBO series ‘Treme’ debuted last Sunday, and I got to watch it recently.  It’s always tough to see New Orleans portrayed by the outside world, but Treme does so relatively well.   Gorgeous cinematography, great music and vibe – so we’ll try to forgive the heavy-handed cultural name dropping and awkward references.  All [...]

Neo-Nazi Jessica Simpson.

Know-Nothing Politics

Know-Nothing Politics
Now, I don’t mean that G.O.P. politicians are, on average, any dumber than their Democratic counterparts. And I certainly don’t mean to question the often frightening smarts of Republican political operatives. What I mean, instead, is that know-nothingism — the insistence that there are simple, brute-force, instant-gratification answers to every problem, and that there’s something [...]
