    Sarah Palin has deeply disappointed her enemies. People who hate her guts feel she's really let them down by resigning. She's like the ex-girlfriend they're SO over, never want to see again, have already forgotten about - really, it's O-ver - but they just can't stop talking about her. Liberal: Ha, ha ... Sarah who? She's over, she's toast, a future Trivial Pursuit answer, nothing more. Normal person: Whatever. How about the North Korean missiles? Liberal: Can you believe she just resigned the governorship like that? What a quitter! Normal person: Speaking of quitting, how's work? Liberal: Did you hear...

    My radio partner Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas noted an appalling instance of historical ignorance in the Minneapolis public schools, and added his thoughts on the current epidemic of amnesia: When asked what historical figure they'd most like to study this year, an astounding 22 of the 35 students in Ms. Ellingham's eighth-grade history class at Susan B. Anthony middle school in Minneapolis answered, "Yoko Ono" and/or "John Lennon." I weep for the future. The great historian David McCullough was on C-SPAN this past week, looking like a beaten man while describing the crushing level of historical ignorance among...

    Enlarge ImageBrain trust. The hormone oxytocin may spur us to trust others even when they betray us by suppressing activity in the dorsal striatum (top, red regions) and amygdala (bottom).Credit: Thomas Baumgartner/University of Zürich Trust forms the foundation of healthy relationships, and now scientists are zeroing in on how the feeling is triggered by chemicals in the brain. A new study shows that the hormone oxytocin may spur us to trust others even after they have betrayed us by suppressing a region of the brain that signals fear. The findings could lead to a better understanding of social phobias...

     It's easy to imagine old hippies around Madison raising gray eyebrows over the Mifflin Street Block Party dispute. Back in 1969, the party was held in defiance of Mayor Bill Dyke, who refused to give the hippies a party permit. This year, the Madison Police Department scheduled officers for the traditional first Saturday in May, but students lobbied to move the party a week earlier so they wouldn't be hung over for exams. I can imagine a party planning conversation between a 1969 hippie and a 2005 neo-hippie. Hippie: "500 block Mifflin, be there." Neo-hippie: "Love to, dude, let me...
