Worth Reading At Slate

I’ve always liked Katie Roiphe as a writer, and her assessment of Joan Didion does not disappoint. Plus, I think Roiphe’s right about her. . . . Daniel Gross writes about Bush’s latest terrible idea, creating a new sub-Cabinet position for manufacturing. I think Gross gets things mostly right, although he may be placing too much emphasis on labor costs and have too much faith in government training programs (assuming that the government is what he means by “we” toward the end of his piece). . . . and Michael Kinsley gets moralistic about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Oui interview, if not for quite the same reasons a social conservative would be.
