    Last year, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced the city had won a coveted $20 million federal grant to invest in weatherization. McGinn had joined Vice President Joe Biden in the White House to make it. It came on the eve of Earth Day. It had heady goals: creating 2,000 living-wage jobs in Seattle and retrofitting 2,000 homes in poorer neighborhoods. But more than a year later, Seattle's numbers are lackluster. As of last week, only three homes had been retrofitted and just 14 new jobs have emerged from the program. Many of the jobs are administrative, and not the entry-level...

    'The Making of a Philosopher': The Intensely Examined Life By MARY LEFKOWITZ Socrates always insisted that what he knew was worth little or nothing, even though no less an authority than the Delphic oracle said that there was no one wiser than he. Philosophers are not ''lovers of wisdom,'' in the literal meaning of the word, but lovers of the search for understanding. They cannot rest until they can determine for themselves and explain to their colleagues how they know what can be known, and why it is worth knowing. Not everyone would be happy living this kind of intensely...
