2 Great Reads at WaPo

This morning's Washington Post has two great op-eds.


In the first, Kathleen Parker skewers the fawning coverage of Texas State Senator Wendy Davis and, along the way, points out the many and varied ways our culture mangles the important discussion of abortion.

In the second, Harold Meyerson notes that our culture's growing sense of social equality is accompanied by growing economic inequality.
