Charles Murray of Bell Curve fame has a new book out, analyzing the cultural divide between the haves and the have-nots.

The entire premise is so asinine that I have a hard time summarizing everything wrong with it, but it suffices to say that trying to explain economic stratification since 1960 without referencing race is like trying to explain a flood without referencing water. Add in his inevitable conclusion that poor people are poor because they're government-dependent moral failures, and you've got a glorified Gingrich campaign stop.
