My next million-dollar idea: Making shirts like this, except with NFL quarterbacks. THE QUARTERBACK IS IN THE POCKET. I want a little Russell Wilson head peeking out, with his throwing arm up. We could make them for every team. Put them on polo shirts, embroidered like the LaCoste crocodile. This is gonna be huge.

Political thoughts for the day:
1) I wonder if the Never Trump movement will try to get the reps in the electoral college to not vote the way their states vote? (Mirroring the popular vote is actually not required in many states.)

2) Some politician should adopt the blackberry as their sigil. Blackberries are thorny, invasive and tenacious as f**k, but once they're there they're so delicious that you don't really want them to leave. I'm writing in blackberries for president.

I thought initially you were referring to the special Obama blackberry phone 🙃

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?

If you need a break from political coverage, this is easily worth 40 minutes of your time.

Attention, my New York-y friends!
Next month I'm singing in a concert in NYC at Carnegie Hall. Here are several good reasons for you to attend:
1) It's a benefit concert for homelessness.
2) The music is really good.
3) I will be there.
4) Some other famous people will be there.

I hope you will come!!

Saturday, Sept. 24
Tickets: https://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2016/9/24/0800/PM/Sing-The-World/

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

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.
