Today's assignment

Posted By on Mon, May 26, 2008 at 10:16 AM

This one is much easier with the print version and an easy chair, but Claude B. suggests a homework assignment for Arkansas Blog readers: George Packer's recent article in The New Yorker suggesting that the Republican Era, thanks to a shortage of ideas, may be over.

Contrast and discuss.
