The MIT Tech (MIT school newspaper) officially endorses Obama for president. The only thing that kind of surprises me is that they actually bothered to do it officially. Hm, I actually wonder what other university newspapers did.

As expected, the Harvard Crimson endorses Obama.

Yale endorsed Obama over Hillary in the primary election, but I don't think they've made a general election endorsement, yet.

The Stanford newspaper is not even really talking about the election... Hmm.

Princeton's newspaper doesn't really talk about the election either, and has not endorsed anyone for the general election, but the College Democrats endorsed Obama during the primaries.

Berkeley endorses Obama and a list of other things on the Berkeley ballot.

George Washington University endorsed Clinton during the primaries.

Thrid Debate

'Twas good. I wish Obama attacked McCain harder for the murder threats and terrorist accusations. If anything happens to him, I say McCain's responsible.

Young, Black, Republican

I found this site from a NYTimes article, and it has been quite intriguing... One young black Republican decided that people like him were [obviously] in a very small minority, and so he established this website, so that people like him could have a space online to talk about their ethnic conservative-ness. Anyway, I'm flabbergasted essentially, which has led me to follow some of their posts for the last couple of days. I'm always amazed when immigrants or ethnic minorities decide that Republican is the way to go. What are they thinking?

Oh no the economy!

and our kids are stupid, too

this is why i hate it when people just say, "oh, kids should just do what they're interested in. maybe they just aren't interested in math."

yay npr

this american life did a pretty good show that had two economists try to explain the latest economic mess and the bailout in pretty simple terms.

Another Frightening Show About the Economy

I haven't been consistently following things, so I recognized a lot of terms that have been going around but didn't know what all of them were. This helped a lot of things make more sense to me.

The previous episode was also really interesting (act I, the first part is the best)

Going Big

it's about a comprehensive social program in harlem that's trying to bring an entire neighborhood of poor kids up differently so they have a better chance of a fresh start and getting out of poverty. I'm going to read the book about it too (when I find it in the library and punt my homework to read)

reps from the McCain and Obama campaigns are going to debate about energy policy tomorrow in Kresge Auditorium at MIT. Put together by the MIT Energy Club

The Green Bubble Bursts

article by the Breakthrough people.

Democrats must break once and for all from green orthodoxy that focuses primarily on making dirty energy more expensive and instead embrace a strategy to make clean energy cheap.

Fact Check

DAMN, Palin did not go up in flames last night. Oh well.

So how much of what they said was true? This much.
