Quote of the Day
Kathleen Reardon over at the Huffington Post, writing about the anti-intellectual tide that seems to be on a never-ending crest in America, quoting John Stuart Mill in On Liberty: Humans "owe to each other help to distinguish the better from the worst and encouragement to choose the former and avoid the latter." Indeed we do, although lots of our fellow humans seem dedicated to precisely the opposite--which takes Reardon back to her original point.

Since one of our missions here (besides snarking at everything snarkable) is to help distinguish the better from the worst, I'm happy to announce that in the wake of his most recent relief appearance this past week, Tom Herbst will become a regular contributor to this blog, effective whenever he puts up his next post. This doesn't mean I'll be writing any less (in case you were hoping that's what it means), just that Tom will be adding his perspectives more often. If ever there were a case in which two heads are better than one, this should be it.
