NYT writer blames Kennedy assassination on....

They just simply transfer responsibility from those they wish to protect, and attach it to those they wish to attack. And David Frum in a later tweet asks the very good question: What collective responsibility does Los Angeles have for the murder of Robert F. Kennedy?

I don't know of a better tribute than this video, which I've posted here in years past.

The 5% who are losing their health insurance due to Obamacare

Perhaps the luckless 5% are just an opening wedge in a broader takeover of healthcare further down the road. I'm not implying a conspiracy, so much as I'm observing that water will erode terrain that has been previously softened. For the "disruption" that attends every extension of government into the insurance and healthcare industries, the remaining patches of the free market will be blamed, and "solutions" will need to be "implemented." Drip, drip, drip...

The uproar is all the greater since the affected people included so many free-lance journalists, I'll bet.

Jesse Jackson speaks at Furman University

It barely merits comment at this late date in his career: Jesse Jackson gives a speech full of calumnies and rhymes to a self-flaggelating white liberal audience who lap it up, to prove to themselves their state of political grace. Nothing new, right? Right. Nothing to see, move along...except for this: Somebody at Weasel Zippers came up with a zinger of a lede for their blog post on the event.

But that is the opposite of true. As anyone could find out in fewer than two clicks, Furman University is 90% white and mostly upper-class. Jackson was still in friendly territory, since the students were very young and therefore mostly very liberal. But there's no excuse for posting such a howler expecting no one to notice.
