Just some chick.
You're a natural. Keep at it.
I'm sorry. Bobby Finger? Where is Nat King Cole, Bobby Finger? You have Michael Buble*, whom, I believe, it is a Federal law cannot be on any list with the word "best" in it, but you have left off Nat Fucking Cole?
Tell me I missed it. Tell me it was late; or now it's early, and he's actually there. Rather than Michael Bubbly*.
I'm sorry, Bobby Finger. You cannot make any more lists.
* Also cf. Kenny G. You should have your Bobby Fingers removed near keyboards.
@hockeymom I see no way that drugs were *not* involved in the making of a playlist consisting of 50 versions of the same song.
1. I feel all gross and betrayed.
But 2. BuzzFeed didn't have anything to do with it. One of the dudes works there, but he kept it super secret from them. It was (is) just his day job. While he was fucking with all of our minds.
@ChrisT78 Sure, but you'd have to explain how "strong families" matter when so many of the best-performing countries have much lower marriage rates than the U.S.
@deepomega I actually think the US education system is pretty OK. If you airlifted a Finnish school into a poor section of DC or Baltimore I doubt it would make a huge difference in those kids' lives.
The problem here is people seeing bad outcomes and thinking the solution is to wreck the public school system and give a lot of money to Tech Innovators and charter school charlatans.
@deepomega And actually, though I see what you're getting at, you're wrong that everything is a market. "Public goods" are indeed goods, but there are many ways of producing and allocating goods besides a market. Entire empires have risen and fallen with not more than a tiny percentage of their economic output passing through anything we might know as a "market."
Why don't we just look at the countries with the best education systems, which are all based on watching MOOCs on iPads.
What's that you say, they AREN'T?
It is like you read my mind, Maria.
