Two for the Bad Column

     Superfluous words and few facts are the real problem in The Age of the Superfluous Worker although there are definitely too many people needing jobs.

     She needs a little time out of her ivory tower in Pepper Spraying Taxpayers so she could actually write something worth reading.


Three for the Good Column

     Great interview of the polling guru of the Iowa Caucuses for us polling junkies.
