Essential Reading: From Chivalry To Terrorism: War and the Changing Nature of Masculinity, By Leo Braudy In this new book, Braudy shows how the needs and technology of waging war throughout history have been the prime determinants of social conventions, specifically honor and masculinity.  It is an indispensable book for anyone interested in understanding the current state of political conflict in the United States today.  Near the end, Braudy quotes from an interview with Osama Bin Laden where he explains that even worse than having Saudi Arabia defended by western soldiers, is the fact that some of those soldier/defenders are women.  This is an impossible insult to Saudi men in general and Moslem men in particular.(April 1, 2004) (Not an April Fools Joke.)

What is the Institute of Election Analysis? The Institute is devoted to the scientific analysis of election results, as opposed to polling results. The difference between ballots cast by voters and opinions given to pollsters is that ballots are cast in secret and only by the people who really make the political decisions, the actual voters.

Since 1981, Joshua Leinsdorf has been doing systematic analyses of election results. As a result of his research, he has discovered that many elections are, in fact, rigged by the professional politicians. By just understanding a few simple rules of election analysis, voters can interpret election results for themselves and have a better understanding of both politics and governmental policy.
