This is what baffles me. Have none of these people read the previous interviews? Every new subject seems to wander in, blinking & totally unprepared. How long can this streak continue?

IC: You know he slept with a porn star during his current marriage?

AW: Yes. That’s true, but he does at least get married.


I guess what's most amazing about the Wax interview is that she never seems to consider the possibility that her beliefs about different races cause her to *notice* brown people littering more -- rather than them littering more causing her beliefs.

More broadly, it's amazing that racists never find it at all suspicious, or overly convenient, that the world keeps confirming their priors. "Everywhere I look, I see what I already think. I guess what I already think is true!"
