Okay, so I wasn't off base in my assessment. I am still a cheap ass though.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I have no interest in the lifestyles of the bourgeoisie.

They're boyfriend and girlfriend and he raped her so she wants an abortion, but they're still together? Call Maury.

I wonder if people grow up angry because they were conceived from angry sex.

Stay classy, US Chamber of Commerce:
The US Chamber of Commerce has apparently spent too much time watching Mad Men: in a blog post this morning, Chamber blogger Brad Peck called women’s fight for pay equity to be nothing more than a “fetish for money,” and said women complaining about their pay should focus instead on “choosing the right partner at home.” The Chamber’s Peck also approvingly quoted a post that asked, “Should government force gym-man to share his beautiful babes with couch-potato man?”

I've been asked why I keep Yglesias in my RSS feed - and, admittedly, I often wonder myself - but every once in a while he turns in a gem of a line that reminds me why I liked him at all in the first place. Discussing the policy framing of the Gosnell case:
One line of thinking about the case is Tim Carney's, namely that what Gosnell was doing isn't actually any different from what any other provider of late-term abortions is doing. In that light, strict bans on late-term abortions makes perfect sense. On the one hand, such bans should reduce the number of late-term abortions. On the other hand, such bans would push the residual demand for late-term abortions out of high-quality channels and into sketchy and unsafe ones like Gosnell's. The very sketchiness and unsafeness of these underground providers is yet another virtue of the ban, since the knowledge that she can't get the procedure performed in a safe and sanitary facility will act as a further deterrent to women against seeking a late-term abortion. It is true that some women won't be deterred by either the illegality of obtaining the procedure or the unsafety of the available facilities and that, consequently, some women will die who might otherwise have lived. But that's perhaps a small price to pay for a reduction in the quantity of abortions performed.
If you want to minimize the number of women who have abortions in general or late-term abortions in particular, more Kermit Gosnells is part of the solution.

That last line is so fucking money.

Wow. Why even bother publishing that? Also, the focus on women when they're vulnerable (physically or emotionally) is creepy.

They're not allowed sexual thoughts of their own either. That's lame.
