I have more to say on race and IQ and the president's speech at Morehouse. But my head is swimming right now. You can read Fallows and Andrew on Morehouse here and here. You should also read Jonathan Capehart's piece which points to Obama's inclusion of gay man, at the all male HBCU.


And then you should talk about whatever you want--including but not limited to the fact that this is a rather aimless season of Mad Men. Now if you'll excuse me, I have an appointment with some drugs (Nyquil!) I leave you in the capable hands of Sandy and Kathleen.
