California Must Close Gap In Law On Reporting Sex Abuse

by Zachary D. Kaufmanvia SLS Blogs
Monday, June 24, 2019

The #MeToo movement has emphasized not only how rampant sexual abuse is, but also how frequently third parties disregard — or even enable — it. California is an epicenter of this movement with many of the highest-profile instances of both assault and bystanderism occurring here, particularly in Hollywood. In perhaps the most notorious case, at least 16 people admitted witnessing or knowing of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct but remaining silent; his behavior was infamous within both Miramax and the Weinstein Co., giants in the entertainment industry.

Crack-Ups At The Crossroads Of Intersectionality

by Victor Davis Hansonvia American Greatness
Sunday, June 23, 2019

Progressives do not see the United States as an exceptional uniter of factions and tribes into a cohesive whole—each citizen subordinating his tribal, ethnic, and religious affinities to a shared Americanism, emblemized by our national motto e pluribus unum. Instead, they prefer e uno plures: out of one nation arise many innately different and separate peoples.


The Rent Is Too Damn High

by John H. Cochrane via Grumpy Economist
Sunday, June 23, 2019

NPR covered the Democratic candidates' plans to address housing issues: [Julian] Castro would provide housing vouchers to all families who need help. Right now, only 1 in 4 families eligible for housing assistance gets it. He would also increase government spending on new affordable housing by tens of billions of dollars a year and provide a refundable tax credit to the millions of low- and moderate-income renters who have to spend more than 30% of their incomes on housing.

Sunday, June 23, 2019

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city’s specialized high schools have a diversity problem. He’s joined by New York City Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza, educators, students and community leaders who want to fix the diversity problem. I bet you can easily guess what they will do to “improve” the racial mix of students (aka diversity). If you guessed they would propose eliminating the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test as the sole criterion for admissions, go to the head of the class.
