Comments: Lunch break

"There was a little current of fear at the sudden recognition that testosterone could fuel politics. It was a shock, apparently, that we might be this close to real feelings. That politics could actually be personal."Damn personal. If there's anything that we can learn from the "right's" criticism is that this whole "abstract-disconnected-ivory-tower distance-from-reality" stereotype needs to be toned quite a bit down - at least at this point in reality. What's happening is not just an interesting side bit anymore with no likely impact on our immediate lives. Economy, law, freedoms, death, education. . . They are reaching for the gold ring here. In any event, thanks for the pointer to the article.

That was the part of the article that fascinated me, as well. I remain entirely frustrated that the author stopped at what seemed to me to be the beginning of the important material.
