Something to Know - 29 May

Clay Bennett
1.  David Brooks looks at the so-so science of Psychiatry (his words), and rationalizes it as a body of work that has plenty of room for the practitioner to invent and create new solutions as he goes along.  Some people may differ, but it sounds plausible:

2.  Syria just won't go away.  McCain's over there now, doing what he does best - screwing things up.  Just more stuff to read about, and none of it is good:

3.  I thought I had problems moving from Georgia back to California.  I had a big house with all the books that I had ever acquired since college, and plenty of shelves for all of them.  Then the move, and the wife nagging me about getting rid of stuff since we were "downsizing".  It was not easy.  Now, I have a smaller home, and little book space. E-books from Kindle really help.  Now, imagine a college professor and prolific writer (Stanley Fish)....read how he works through it:

4.  In order to assure the "Party of Stupid" label sticks, the bloviating Donald Trump is making noises for another presidential run in 2016.  This is just silly stuff:

5.  This time around, an effective game plan by a coalition of bi-partisan Senators has been able to blow back on the conservative GeeOpie naysayers on the workings of the immigration reform bill.   For better or worse, there might be something in the works that will emerge to vote on and probably pass:
