The Square Circuit

Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

Spent the day reading the files of the American Committee for Cultural Freedom, which are held at NYU. Very interesting to immerse myself in the world of 1950s anticommunism. All of the infighting among the groups is fascinating.

The NY Republican Party, with guidance I assume from Rove and the Repub Senate campaign committee, is running Jeanine Pirro for Senate. Apparently they know she won't beat Hillary but they want to "bloody" her in advance. Maybe Karl Rove can get together with Ed Klein and Dick Morris and they can devise some kind of "Hillary is a lesbian" attack.

It is nice, though, to be out of Santorum country for a couple of weeks.
