New Sam Harris article

I'm always pleased to read any new writing by Sam Harris. The Los Angeles Times ran an op/ed piece by him this morning. Palin: average isn't good enough.

I won't spoil his words by adding mine, so I'll just leave you with a snippet that I lifted from the piece.

If you want someone just like you to be president of the United States, or even vice president, you deserve whatever dysfunctional society you get. You deserve to be poor, to see the environment despoiled, to watch your children receive a fourth-rate education and to suffer as this country wages -- and loses -- both necessary and unnecessary wars.
