Race v. Class?
Russ Douthaut has a column that every NYTimes reader should read if only to remind us of the “outer boroughs” and west of the Hudson. On the other hand, he pins his case on one study of elite institutions to explain why white, Christian America is so angry. That’s, of course, if “we” really are, “The roots of white anxiety”. Take a look. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/19/opinion/19douthat.html?_r=1&ref=opinion
And Paul Krugman has a few telling observations on the state of political discourse, “the pundit delusion”. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/19/opinion/19krugman.html?ref=opinion
