Bitter at the Top

I scoffed when I started reading today's David Brooks column, but--despite the partisan slant he buries in the writing--I think he may be on to something as he contemplates the thinking behind the great political divide among college-educated folk. If he is, though, these divisions run deeper than any policy issue--perhaps too deep to be overcome. Too bad Brooks offers only the observation. I'd like to see his idea for a solution.

I also enjoyed his article today, and I found myself agreeing with it to a large degree.

But I also found the Slate article on Brooks even more interesting, though I don't know much about him in the first place. But there seems to be a great deal of animosity towards him now, and I think their opinions of his writing are fair. I've never really been too impressed by him, other than the occasional article.
