Sonny Bunch argues – convincingly, though I’m an easy sell – that basic cable’s constraints are a boon to creativity. For TV shows, anyway.

Sitcoms are generally struggling these days, but Jusef Adalian says that actually may not be such a bad thing for sitcom-lovers. If expectations are lowered by the networks, there may be more room for smarter comedies.

    The Republicans have a talent gap because 90% of the Ivy League students are liberal Democrats. There are many career paths for liberal Democrats such as academia and think takes that are closed off to conservatives. The left can afford huge entourages because there are plenty of jobs. The few who make a living on the right have fewer options and want fewer competitors.

    Politics is breaking down to a fight between Ivy League graduates and state school drop outs. Is there any question why the left always wins.

      Not dropouts, necessary, but I do think the state vs private college distinction is a thing.

      One of the things the article points out is that Democrats have found a way to make a career out of the political work. While Republican operatives do have choices, on the activism side, that’s part of the problem. They churn more quickly and are keeping an eye on their exit. Democrats are saying “Hey, you can do this for the rest of your life” while it’s assumed that Republicans won’t.

    DHL pulled out of the American market, but they’re still present in the rest of the world. Of course, it helps that DHL is owned by Deutsche Post, and they can deliver to places that aren’t so friendly to Americans like Cuba.
