Too late to try to discredit a personality who appears in Newsweek and
other publications and network TV programs. Murray is already a regular
commentator at National Public Radio as a voice for another conservative
think tank. (speaking whith 'erudition' today about welfare reform.)
Too much analysis about Murray et al's work is not going to be a substitute
for political pressure (read angry or otherwise protest) from the other side.

Apologies for those who think that political debate shouldnt appear here.
