In which the book Founding Brothers gives me some insight into the nature of our two-party political system.

In which my readers and I try to remember the first record albums we ever owned. In which I discuss the etymology of ‘flotch’.

Child Development

04 February 2004

In which I wonder: when is it appropriate for children to learn about racism? Other religions? Sex? When can they safely watch gunplay and fisticuffs on television? Also: I’ve a renewed interest in Greek mythology.
