Well, to be fair Obama did try to push these out to the suburbs.

Yet another federal program that does more damage than good, and would be completely dominated by a voucher program that let people live wherever they want to. Of course that would leave thousands of would be social engineers with nothing to do but find productive work.

"Obama did try to push these out to the suburbs"
And then import People Of Color from nearby states to reside in them. Example: Iowa, Chicago. What was that program called?

Is this the new "busing" condition imposed on us but without judicial requirement? What the hell would America look like in a true Federalism?

Someone should paint that picture.

"Just a day earlier, Leeah [age 9], who walks more than a mile to and from school every day because school buses do not come out that way, was chased home by fourth graders in a dispute over someone being sprayed with Silly String"

Hard to imagine a 9 yo having to walk a mile to and from school daily, because "school buses do not come out the way". Houston likely has city buses who allow students to ride free, and for some reason this mother opted out. Maybe the 9 yo had older siblings/neighbors she walked with; otherwise, the mother's contention doesn't make sense to me.

When I have brought up the need to be careful now with a term like federalism that has clearly been coopted the 'conservative' think tank employees seem upset I knew about progressive federalism.

I don't know but I hope he's like the Robert Redford character in '3 Days Of The Condor,' where he's paid to read books from around the globe on international intrigue and figure out how to topple governments and promote American interests. And if thats his job he deserves a raise since he's so good at it:)

Wiki Dubuque, Iowa: "The racial makeup of the city was 91.7% White, 4.0% African American, 0.3% Native American, 1.1% Asian, 0.5% Pacific Islander, 0.6% from other races, and 1.8% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.4% of the population."

This is where BOzo's HUD believed inner city Chicago's low income students would thrive?

rse,

Amazing that the Prog's even want to co-op the foundational logic of the democratic and constitutional basis of our form of government. It is so silly and juvenile I don't even know where to start. This is what happens over generations exposed to our higher education.

What's amazing is how the D'nesh Souza's and other right-thinkers come out it with reason in tact?

So do you think it's a coincidence this new desire for an Urban Science and interface for policymaking http://citiscope.org/commentary/2017/07/urban-science-must-inform-policymaking-heres-how is also based in part at yale where the law school pushes that new federalism that enables it out of sight?

Me neither.

Mueller is investigating Trump for obstruction ...Trump saying, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
How many months can they drag out an investigation of 3 sentences?

Geez thanks for all those Yale links. Frederick goes there next year for his summer camp.

Clarice Feldman

The highway program did much the same thing--cutting thru poorer (largely black) neighborhoods in urban areas because land acquisition costs were lower.

JiB... I can recommend bars and pizza joints when Frederick is ready for that.

In referring to Mike Barnicle's FAKE NEWS tweet of the death of the Ice Bucket Challenge guy Pete Frates, Fox News said only that it was by a "local journalist". Neither of those two words are true.

Catsmeat

Do any of you know about Hungary during WWII, outside of what I can find out from Wikipedia? Obvious first take: that was an absolutely horrible place to be and if you survived, "hungry" as the Yanks would put it. Am teaching Kate Seredy's "The Chestry Oak," a beautiful children's story from 1948 which is largely about Hungary under the Nazis. It leaves out what happens to the Jews, rather a hideously large omission, but it has mordant commentary about Nazi propaganda about Stalingrad (block after block taken for weeks so that one thinks that Stalingrad must be a city 100 miles square to accommodate so many blocks!)

JM Hanes

Mueller is not investigating Trump for obstruction. The team he has put together will be combing through every known transaction and every acquaintance Trump has ever made since he became a legal adult, hoping to find some irregularity to hang him with. Given his casino & resort developments, I have absolutely no doubt that they're looking for anything that might be cast as "mob connections," now that the Russia narrative has pretty much lost any remaining traction.

The best overall view of the Holocaust country by country is this one which we used extensively at the DoJ'S OSI:https://www.amazon.com/Destruction-European-Jews-Student-One/dp/0841909105

He will be 14 going on 15 then. No bars but he will be a regular at the pizza joints. I am going to save 1 hour on the trip over the sound.

OL,

Forgot to mention that River Road must have been a mess over the weekend since they had the PGA at Avenal. My old club when in DC. It looked great on TV. Did you go?

In Re: Budapest and Hungary. Those architectural marvels are false fronts due to the Nazi bombing in WW2.

BTW, my dear old friend George Lang, from my habitue days at the Cafe de Artise in NYC 67th street west side, turned me onto the Grundel in Budapest. One of the best restaurants in the world. If you go, then you have to eat there.

The parents of a Rhodes scholar I knew at Davidson fled Hungary after the 1956 revolt. She was an anti-anti-Sandinista then (early 80s), which bemused and disgusted me, and I doubt she's changed. She's now pres of Agnes Scott college and on corporate boards. How can intelligent people be so stupid?
Her parents worked for Voice of America, which I thought then was pro-freedom but maybe not.

Thank you for the recommendations, Clarice, Deb, JiB, CH. I just discovered that about a third of the Jews killed in Auschwitz were from Hungary (I could have checked Eichmann in Jerusalem for figures of course). The political history of the interwar years up to the Soviet victory is hard to follow and hard to take, but very interesting--I will be glad to learn more. Interesting that throughout much of the war Romanians and Hungarians were both fighting for the Axis powers as part of the Russian front (disastrously for both, of course) but were still maintaining military forces against each other on their mutual border.

....and Japan will put up with this much longer. Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!
