Independent Voters don't decide elections

I was struck by an article posted on the Huffington Post awhile back bemoaning Pres. Obama's weakness as a negotiator. By no means was this article unique in its tone. In fact, it is really just one of many in a long line of articles, posts, and commentaries impugning Obama's apparent failure to serve as a standard bearer for this or that thing that the author considers some grand monolithic Democratic or Liberal cause.


E-readers will kill creativity

Hey prof, grade my essay? There's (kind of) an app for that. The e-Rater, an automated essay-grading system developed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), can grade up to 16,000 essays a minute. For educators across America, such a creation could lift mean a far easier job, or even spell disaster in the form of "u-n-e-m-p-l-o-y-m-e-n-t."
