Gaming: The ethnic analysis

Steve Sailer provides his usual offbeat analysis of a hot issue — Dr. Bennett’s gambling: “Bennett’s gambling in perspective.” I think Sailer’s conclusion is on the money, so to speak, with the exception of its description of Michael Kinsley as ascetic — effeminate would be more like it: “This old college football lineman’s critics, such as the ascetic, almost bird-like journalist Michael Kinsley, may not understand why so many people like him. Americans have seldom wanted to be lectured on virtue by people who look like they don’t understand the appeal of vice. Bennett, who drinks, used to smoke, and eats and eats, is clearly a man of appetites. Eventually, he’ll be poised to come back as the traditionally appealing figure, the reformed sinner.”
