“Of course, like every other man of intelligence and education I do believe in organic evolution. It surprises me that at this late date such questions should be raised.”  ~ Woodrow Wilson,  in 1922

Hey Boing Boing, how about not posting the exact same links over and over?  

Failing that, does anyone know of a Firefox add-on to remove duplicate posts from my G+ feed?

'The government cannot go on living beyond its means.’ This seems common sense, so when someone puts forward the view that just now austerity is harmful, and should wait until times are better, it appears fanciful and too good to be true. Why would the government be putting us through all this if it didn’t have to?'

The economics that govern a family's finances do not apply to a nation.  More specifically, a government which prints its own money cannot "live beyond its means".

"The middle class, if defined as households making between $35,000 and $100,000 a year, shrank in the final decades of the 20th century. For a welcome reason, though: More Americans moved up into what might be considered the upper middle class or the affluent. Since 2000, the middle class has been shrinking for a decidedly more alarming reason: Incomes have fallen."
