[OP-ED]: By all means, take issue with ‘The Bell Curve.’ But read it first

t’s a shame that the controversy regarding “The Bell Curve” centered on the book’s delineation of the differences in measured intelligence between blacks and whites
English

When “The Bell Curve” by Charles A. Murray and Richard Herrnstein was published in 1994, I was a junior in college and didn’t know anything about the book except that it had my white literature professors in an uproar. A few of them inveighed against the book’s premise -- the very notion of intelligence as something people possess in varying degrees -- and then the whole controversy eventually died out.

Si usted siente que después de las elecciones pasadas son los pacientes los que dirigen el manicomio, créame, no es el único. El lunático número uno es, sin duda, el mismo presidente, quien la semana pasada en Miami demostró una vez más que su concepto (o su comprensión) de la realidad no pasa de los “reality shows”.

If you feel that after the last election the inmates are running the asylum, you are not alone. The main lunatic seems to be the president himself, who last week in Miami showed once again that his concept (or his grasp) of reality does not go beyond, well, very bad “reality shows.”
