The concept of “diversity” enshrined by the Supreme Court in Grutter as a compelling state interest overriding the right to equal protection of the laws cannot survive any rigorous scrutiny. In the issue of the Weekly Standard out this morning Peter Berkowitz sketches what Marxists might call the internal contradictions of the concept in “Dubious diversity.”
This issue of the Standard is devoted to “summer reading.” One book we won’t be reading this summer is Hillary’s (or “Hillary’s”), but the Standard has kindly made P.J. O’Rourke’s extended review of the book available online: “Hillary’s history.”
The issue also carries an interesting exchange between editors of the New Republic and Stephen Hayes regarding the New Republic’s latest line on the administration and the war.
