Ever since that movie about social networks, the credit claiming business has gone into overdrive. A new idea might be worth $65 million.
So it is with considerable umbrage that I read Michael Kinsley’s saucy claim in Politico that he is the first red-blooded American to urge that kids be given the right to vote.
Wait a minute. I called for that election reform 20 years ago. My “immodest proposal” was published in no less a source than Deadalus, the official journal of the American Academy of Sciences, an organization founded by John Adams (to give him credit) of which I am a member (more credit). I even wrote a short version for the Brookings Review where I had been a senior fellow (still more credit).
