"The Speech: A Brilliant Fraud" by Charles Krauthammer
Great op-ed by Krauthammer. I don't know about you but if my pastor said our government invented HIV "as a means of genocide against people of color" and other crazy notions that Rev. Wright stated, I would have immediately left that church. Why did Obama stay there for 17 or so years?
"A Thinking Man's Speech" by Peggy Noonan
Great TED Talk from 2004, Malcolm Gladwell: What we can learn from spaghetti sauce:
In this witty monologue, Malcolm Gladwell follows the career of a food industry consultant who uncovered a key secret to what eaters like. Running huge focus groups to find customers' truest tastes, Gladwell's hero draws a radical conclusion, an epiphany that has defined food marketing ever since. Note: The theme of the 2004 conference was "The Pursuit of Happiness" -- hence the talk's quirky presence.
