Jots with dots 9/29

Neil deGrasse Tyson begrudgingly acknowledges his use of this Bush quote has been ‘in err’, lets say. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/09/27/neil-degrasse-tyson-admits-he-botched-bush-quote/ He also complains that he shouldn’t have been an intuitive candidate for a factcheck. His seminar parables are believable enough that we might ponder the mental problems of those pedants who’d challenge him, he argues. http://thefederalist.com/2014/09/27/neil-degrasse-tyson-just-trust-me-on-those-things-i-said-ok/ He’s saying ‘truthiness’ should absolve him. There’s some irony for ya.

The President: economy is better, but people don’t feel it. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/09/29/obama-were-better-off-even-if-you-arent-smart-enough-to-feel-it/ Kind of a 180 take on false consciousness. There’s some irony for ya.
