As you may have noticed, sometimes, when I'm lazy and need to reboot my computer, I put an assortment of links to web sites I have open in a single blog entry. It so happens that I'm lazy and need to reboot my computer. So, let's begin:

That's not all I have open, but that's all I want to blog.
If there's One Right Way to raise a child, I certainly don't know what it is, so I'll stay out of that battle. But I would like to point out that if you think you've found the One Right Way to raise YOUR child, then it does indeed make sense to fight hard to persuade as many other women as possible to make the same choice. If you are at home, working mothers are your enemy, at least until they chuck the rat race, and vice versa.She makes a good point.
- Jonah Goldberg and I have a fundamental point of agreement on immigration:
That's why my first choice for an immigration policy is to have one. Then, whatever it is, we have to enforce it ruthlessly and see what happens. Then we can make adjustments. The current policy is chaos, which means you can't make any meaningful fixes or adjustments. I'm certain I disagree with Derb and Mark's preferred policies on the details. But I would much, much, much rather have their dream scenario imposed and enforced with the caveat that it can be revisited as necessary than to stick with the status quo. Pick a policy and enforce it, from there progress can be made.My second choice would be to openly not have a policy. If we're going to have people immigrating, we shouldn't tell them, "what you're doing is illegal, but we don't actually care about our laws." We also shouldn't drive away only those potential immigrants who are inclined to obey the law, who currently either stay where they are or go through an extraordinarily complex process to come here legally. Law-breakers should be punished at least as harshly as law-abiders.
- Something about CAFE standards which I've only kind of skimmed. But, hey, might be interesting.
