Re: “An Ethan Orr Supporter Sticks Up for His Candidate

I hear this argument regularly- you need to vote for a Republican because they are the majority in the legislature, nothing gets done. Well if we believe that it will always be true.

Re: “BASIS and University High Are Top U.S. High Schools, Which Means . . .?

To Jeff Nadeau et al.

If a doctor required all patients to walk up 5 flights of stairs to get to his office, I imagine his patients would be healthy and live longer. This would have little to do with the doctor's medical skills or ability to diagnose patients. Would you consider this doctor a good doctor or a shrewd doctor? Would you prefer to go to this doctor or one actually good at diagnosis and care?

The measure of a school should be the difference in cation it makes in a students life. It is not clear that UHS and BASIS do not simply skim the smart hard working kids who have no problems in their lives. Picking these kids makes them lok good but it is unclear that they really represent a delta in their students lives.

Re: “Danehy

Nice piece Tom, I do take issue with one thng, TV was not the greatest invention of the 20th century - that credit should probably go to the transistor - which arguably has brought us the computer revolution and the internet. In fact the transistor is in some many places you probably have 4 or 5 on your person as I type.
