Found this interesting, especially this part:
"When Michael Young, a British sociologist, coined the term meritocracy in 1958, it was in a dystopian satire. At the time, the world he imagined, in which intelligence fully determined who thrived and who languished, was understood to be predatory, pathological, far-fetched. Today, however, we’ve almost finished installing such a system, and we have embraced the idea of a meritocracy with few reservations, even treating it as virtuous."

Is stupidity the next front for the social justice wars? Should it be?
American society increasingly mistakes intelligence for human worth.

Right on the money, as usual, Sasch.

The article did differentiate between innate "intelligence" vs. "education", which I think is an important distinction -- there's so much we could do to give less innately gifted individuals better chances in life through early childhood education, which would help tease out some of these correlations (e.g., does empathy correlate with education, or with intelligence?).

I find some of these responses interesting, though, because they're indicative of exactly what the article describes: our current societal attitude towards stupidity, associating stupidity with abusiveness, or lack of empathy. Even if we're asking questions rather than making assertions, it's still instructive; for example, I don't think we would be asking whether one's race or sexuality is correlated with these attributes.

While reading this article I was basically trying to decide whether this is another axis upon which I have unconscious bias, and should work on, or whether this is a step too far in social-justice-warrior political correctness. Like, is the next step an article about "The War on Bad People," arguing that bad people aren't bad, that good and bad are just natural differences and we should embrace both? Or am I an able-ist elitist?

Come support a good cause (fighting homelessness in Seattle) and come hear me sing at Benaroya Hall this Sunday. Here's a teaser from King5, which features a prominent cameo of my shoes.
#StreetRequiem
A group of Seattle musicians are on a mission to help the homeless. They're putting on a benefit concert Sunday night, with 90 percent of the purchase price of each ticket going directly to non-profits that serve the homeless in Seattle and King County.

If you like making music and honoring those less fortunate than you, please join me in either participating or attending this performance of Street Requiem at Benaroya Hall on May 1! I'll be singing, and they're looking for singers and orchestra musicians.

This hits home, right in the sweet spot of stereotypes we have about rich and poor people.

Careful, Seattle: when The Big One hits, all of downtown is going to look like this.

Wow: Apparently Salvador Dali once collaborated with Disney... and the result is exactly like you would expect.

I've saved this page for quite a while, and today's a good time to watch the video, since two days ago I was at the Dali museum in Berlin. They had some photos of Dali and Disney together, but not much about this. Thank you, this was ... as you said.

Excellent combination of price + quality. I feel confident taking my hair here and will definitely return. The first time I came I got a double process (bleach + dye) on my more-than-3-foot-long hair and they did a gorgeous job. A beautiful, rich shade of purple, and the students working on me were really excited about it, which made me feel great. The second time I got a haircut + double process, again with great results. As reflected in other reviews, the work can take a long time, so park somewhere you can stay awhile.

I LOVE going into this shop. It feels so abundant, like yarn is spilling out of every shelf... and yet it's well-organized, not chaotic. They have something in every style. A great go-to local yarn shop, with lots of fun surprises too.
