Tab dump

1) The New Republic and guilt by association.

2) Marty Peretz apologizes to Matt Yglesias.

3) "Great beer and great wine are on the same team."

4) "We find no clear relation between income inequality and class-based voting."

Recipe of the day: The best way to do toasted pumpkin seeds.

I just met a pale girl dressed in anachronistic clothing who looks a lot like the child kidnapped on this very block, on this very day, a hundred years ago. She asked me to wish you a Happy Halloween!

kudoes to "log cabin maple syrup"

first commercial product i have seen in the market with a new label that reads, "no high fructose corn syrup in this product."
though they still use corn syrup, there is a difference between the two products.
this is actually the first label i have seen promoting consumer awareness of high fructose corn syrup in a highly commercialized food product.

"We find no clear relation between income inequality and class-based voting."

Sloppy language alert! Sloppy language alert!

It seems the researchers are looking for a correlation between the _increase_ in income disparity over time and voting habits.

Part of the confusion here is due to the original authors' sloppy language (probably not a good sign).

In the 'discussion' section they state, "Higher-income Americans are more likely than low-income Americans to vote Republican." Then three paragraphs later, they ask "So why do we find so little evidence of a link between income inequality and class-based voting?"

The notion that people don't vote their economic interest is a standard GOP talking point. (It has to be, otherwise they'd have to stick "Millionaires' Party" in their name.)

Anyway, here's Krugman on the case:
