Has anyone else noticed that Ben Schott of Schott's Original Miscellany is all over the place right about now? He also did that Oscars chart in Vanity Fair this month. No matter, I find him clever and amusing, and his recent Op-Ed on this bizarre "General Social Survey" is pretty fascinating. I won't point out the strange crush the Times seems to have on him, given that this Schott article is followed by a giant, semi-hilarious piece in the Times Book Review three days later.
