"..people refusing to contemplate the real values of the opposition as the opposition sees it..."

Popular news and punditry seems saturated with this refusal, to the point that I desire to characterize the media's real values in a wholly unbecoming and unfairly generalized manner. It would be a nice evolution of society if we introduced a 'rationality' class into the public school curriculum. Or perhaps developed a 'Bayes Scouts' with merit badges.

Yeah, pipermail URLs seem to change once in a while for no obvious reason. (Bad design even if, say, messages are getting deleted; URLs should be permanent whenever possible.)

Here's the message that link was probably referring to.
