I have a lot of work to do today, so here's stuff for you to read:

"Women Find It Really Hot When You Hate America"

"The unteachable ignorance of the red states."
By Jane Smiley at Slate,from November(in case you missed it)

Stupidity as a Firing Offense
Why is Bill O'Reilly chairing our faculty meetings?
By Dahlia Lithwick , who says that "Ward Churchill shouldn't be punished, but the people who hired him should (be)." Huh?(For my part,I fail to see why anyone needs to be punished, but hey,what do I know.)
also at Slate

incidentally, the now-notorious essay can be found here.
(also linked by Slate) article on scientology and the irs
(yes, I read other things beside Slate):
