"Gandhi famously answered the question What do you think of Western Civilization? by saying 'I think it would be a good idea.' That phrase might come in handy the next time somebody asks what you think of a two-party democracy: It would be a good idea. As the economy burns to the ground, nobody's calling the Fire Department. Both parties want to throw gasoline on the fire, and their only disagreement is whether to use regular gas or unleaded." [editor's note: As usual, Eskow draws a correct conclusion, from mostly bad premises - SAT] (07/28/11)
