"Sex and the Single Girl," 1964. This is a wonderful movie. I really liked the multi-car chase scene near the end with everyone switching partners. Très chic.

Op-Ed Contributor - The Return of the Blue-Collar Blues - NYTimes.com

This is a very nice article. It doesn't exactly point toward solutions, but at least it validates the anger and the malaise we are experiencing due to the weak economic climate right now.

State Religion

I think the intersection of church and state authority is really fascinating. Ice-T calls himself an Antidisestablishmentarian on the "O.G. Original Gangster" album, and I always thought he was just playing around. Now I see that it might make sense for him to like the idea of a national church that functions as a way of unifying the people.

If such an organization were checked by other branches of government, I think that something like this could work in the United States or any other country. Unfortunately, the U.S. prides itself quite strongly on being a bastion of Secular Choice regarding religious matters. Other Americans think of America as a "Christian Nation," and some people talk about our "Judeo-Christian Values."

I personally think that there is a lot of truth to the idea that America is rooted in Jewish and Christian traditions and ideas. Unfortunately, our country was founded on the separation of church and state, and I feel like this has created or at least fed a lot of social problems in our country. Of course, historically forcing immigrants to switch their religious allegiance has never really worked either, so this problem of social cohesion does not have an easy solution.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York struck down the FCC's indecency policy last month, calling it a violation of the First Amendment. The court said the rule forces broadcasters to self-censor in order to avoid fines for accidentally broadcasting nudity or profanity.

63-year-old Lions fan walks 425 miles to attend practice - Shutdown Corner - NFL  - Yahoo! Sports

As Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz broke his team's 2010 training camp on Wednesday, he had a special guest in-house -- Joe Paquette Jr., a 63-year-old man from Michigan's Upper Peninsula, who walked over 400 miles to attend a team practice. The long hike -- 425 miles in 18 days -- had something strong behind it.

"THERE ARE A couple of ways people quit," a person who manages a multibillion-dollar hedge fund said this week. "One is, they make a ton of money, they have a crappy year, now investors want to meet with them to find out why they're not making money, and they're like, 'I don't want to meet with these assholes.'"
