    That survey about the sex lives of college students is largely meaningless, just like all sex surveys, on account of inaccurate reporting. Males deliberately report more sex partners than they’ve actually had while women report fewer. Even completely anonymous surveys suffer from this reporting bias.

    In re school naming: We probably should go back to the old NYC system of just using numbers, because generally that’s an easier way of avoiding saddlesoreness over the person chosen to be so “honored” with the name.

    Then again, I suppose in some communities, 4, 13, or 666 would be taboo numbers for schools.

    That TA Frank piece….ugghhh. I know discussions of the white working class have been pretty common which is good. But this “The more that Democrats write off the white working class, which has been experiencing a drastic decline in living standards, the harder it is for them to call themselves a party of the little guy.” So not appealing to the WHITE working class means you aren’t for the little guy. But D’s do very well with the rest of the working class and poor which means ???? I guess if they dont’ appeal to the whites they aren’t for the little guy. There is also explantion of how D’s are going out of their way to just write off the WWC while helping other WC and poor people.
