Recommended Reading

It's been touch-and-go blogging-wise for the past week, mainly because I've been attempting to navigate my way through a gauntlet of commitments both personal and professional (including getting my family and I moved into some new digs -- the end result of which is great, the process of getting there not so much). I expect to be posting regularly relatively soon, but I didn't want too much time to elapse before I linked to this piece, another gem from the dependably-erudite George Lakoff. In examining the currently-unfolding budgetary showdown in Wisconsin, with Democratic senators on the lam in order to stall a Republican governor seemingly hellbent on eliminating collective bargaining rights for public employees, Lakoff argues that we've been given a clear window into the true conservative agenda for America. Much of it we know already, but instructive nonetheless.
