"Dumb and Dumber To" is mostly the right kind of regressive
Wed, 19 Nov 2014 09:16:00 CDT - In case there was a question about this matter, "Dumb and Dumber To" is - for lack of a better word - dumb. Very dumb. There's entertainment where you turn your brain off, and then there's this, where maybe it's best if you leave your brain out of the theater altogether just in case its rollicking, unrepentant stupidity is somehow contagious. But did I laugh? Yes.

The horror! Bucks owners back Dems?
Tue, 18 Nov 2014 16:28:00 CDT - Who cares if one of the new gazillionaire owners of the Milwaukee Bucks supports Democrats and welcomed President Obama to Milwaukee? What does that have to do with the price of tea in China? (sorry for the cliché. It seems apt).
This white Democrat agrees: we blew it
Tue, 18 Nov 2014 15:05:00 CDT - This year, though vote totals suggest Wisconsin turnout wasn't down for a mid-term election, my anecdata do: every election I give my students bonus credit for bringing in "I Voted" stickers. This month I collected fewer than I ever have from my overwhelmingly black and Latino students, suggesting they, their families, and their neighbors just didn't vote. Even in the "99 percent Obama" ward where Burke and the president appeared together, turnout was down from the last gubernatorial contest.
