Re: Good Cover Versions

Couldn't part of that be that female instrumentalists for classical orchestras compete on a level playing field (auditions behind a curtain), while pop music does not have that. Also, the commercial pressures in both markets select for different talents.

Re: Inequality

9. The newcomers are ignorant of the dynamics at play, but the incumbents don't have a real complaint about gentrification in this situation? I guess not? None of that is mysterious, but I have a hard time seeing it as anything other than an attempt to scapegoat those unwelcome newcomers (you know,...

Well, well, well. Look who all of the sudden finds justification for occupational licensing. I'm shocked that economists are not the purely logical robots that the claim to be.

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

It's even more energy efficient, as far as the washer goes, if you hand dry it. But the amount of energy for the bottles and the rinse agent is probably a lot cheaper than more energy spent on heating and wasting it. A bottle of rinse agent lasts a pretty long time. Even taking into account the ene...

David French has quite possibly the dumbest take on the Starbucks thing. Because IAT tests are bullshit (true), subconscious bias is fake (wat?).

This is so fucking insane, I'm surprised the dateline wasn't Florida. Though I would guess that requires the state initially giving a fuck about poor defendants.

Ignoring any claims about right to life and pretending that religious Christians don't believe what they say they believe (they *really* just want a subclass of impoverished women because they're misogynists!) is a classic example of the Left being deliberately provocative.
