The separate reality of radicals, which made them unable to comprehend the consequences of their own actions was made vivid for me in a New York Times story I read later about the parole appeal of Evans’ third political prisoner Kathy Boudin. The Times had run a series of stories on Boudin, with the reporter [...]

David Brooks: Obama is the Pragmatic Leviathan – NYTimes.com


When I was in college, I was assigned “Leviathan,” by Thomas Hobbes. On the cover was an image from the first edition of the book, published in 1651. It shows the British nation as a large man. The people make up the muscles and flesh. Then at the top, there is the king, who is […]

Suicide Bombing Puts a Rare Face on C.I.A.’s Work – NYTimes.com


In the fall of 2001, as an anguished nation came to grips with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a slender, soft-spoken economics major named Elizabeth Hanson set out to write her senior thesis at Colby College in Maine. Her question was a timely one: How do the world’s three major faith traditions apply economic principles? […]

Candace de Russy: Hate-America Sociology – Minding The Campus


Recently, a colleague forwarded to me a copy of an exam from an introductory sociology class found lying in a room at a public college in the east. It was graded 100%.
