Back in Beantown

I'm back in Boston for a surprise visit, so there will be less posting for a bit. In the meantime, check out David Brooks's thought-provoking piece from yesterday.

Come to think of it, Brooks has been on a roll recently. His Friday article was brilliant. The conservative critics would have a lot less power if there were an election right now, but since there isn't the attention is going to those who shout the loudest, not those with the most public support.

And Brooks is at his most formidable when addressing trends in American culture. His latest insightis somewhat terrifying.

  1. It is the practice of 'building capacity'. Finding the smartest people to 'get the job done' and moving theory away from singularly minded smart people and towards collective intelligence and action!
