Numeracy, Hedonism and Journalism: A Place-Holder
For those of you playing along at home, there will be some required reading for this upcoming post. In chronological order:
At The Atlantic:
Hard Core, by Natasha Vargas-Cooper
Is That a Boiled Frog in Your Pocket? Or Are You Just Happy to See Me?, by Tony Comstock (that’s me)
All The Single Ladies, by Kate Bolick
My two responses to Ms. Bolick’s piece, as comments on TheAtlantic.com
It’s Not Too Early to Talk About Freezing Your Eggs, by Lindsay Abrams
At The Daily Caller:
What Are Women For?, by James Poulos
At The American Conservative:
Hedonist, Disciple or Bourgeois?, by Eve Tushnet
So go on now, read up. There will be a test.
Meanwhile I need to get my younger daughter into her Brownie Scout uniform and head over to the volunteer firehouse where she’s participating in a Veteran’s Day ceremony. Thank goodness for the mothers who organize the troop. Elsewise this day would have gone unmarked here at Rancho Ryan.
