Hand Study with Bible, Albrecht Durer, 1506
Daily Thoughts 03/18/2018
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I read a little bit more of The One Percent Solution. Gordon Lafer is describing how some conservative are increasingly adopting a minimal government philosophy where even if there is money for schools, roads, fire departments, and libraries, it should not be spent. The government should be of minimal size, have minimal resources, and be as small as possible
I also read a bit more of Words That Work. Dr. Frank Luntz is describing an idealized average American based on polling and focus groups. The words used in political campaigns are matched to the average American to get their votes. It is not the average American that is being sought out. It is also the average consumer, and the average community.
