Most Popular Posts, #66-70.

Like Grandma Used To Make. I love myth-busting. BTW, my grandmother was a good cook, but I have abandoned her recipe for Swedish Meatballs for a far better one online. February 2014.

Least-Racist Nation. I am glad this one got some attention, even though it is less than a year old. November 2018.

Not Their Tribe. My discussion of the various American tribes, particularly the Arts & Humanities tribe, was a primary focus of the blog in the early years.  I thought I had a lot to say about it, and did - over and over again. It gets a little tedious when someone has a new toy and can't stop talking about it. But this one was pretty good, and it attracted 42 comments, one of the most ever, and the discussion there is very good.  Perhaps the best comment thread ever here. Very early in my blogging career. I am tempted to collect a best five out of the 200 posts that bear on the topic. November 2006

Me 'n IQ I put in little chip shot comments about IQ while posting here and commenting elsewhere, but I hadn't put those in much context. Other people do this better, and I just linked to them a little while ago. December 2012

#70 I will handle separately.  It is about conspiracy theories and paranoia, and I think I will put it together with other posts for a more complete picture.

From "Not their Tribe," I found the following comment.

Jonathan Wyman said:Anonymous- try to keep up with us here. Read the archives. If Enlightenment's 9/11 rant doesn't make you laugh, I'll eat AVI's slippers.

That whetted my curiosity. Google Search: Enlightenment @AVI. Didn't find it.

Richard, I think it's on this post. Bring a coffee (or a stiff drink)

Assistant Village Idiot said...

Yes, that's it. And GM Roper's comment was great.

Thank you for bringing up Enlightenment's comment. Doesn't like paragraphs. I will have to add paragraph breaks in order to attempt to decipher it. It appears that a stiff drink would indeed be needed. This appears to have been a one-shot posting for Enlightenment at AVI.
My not being able to locate it with Advanced Google Search shows that even Advanced Google Search has its limitations- though it is the best web search tool available.

Interesting table at Christopher B's link. Correlation of GINI (income inequality) rank with rank in % White: -0.53. Lower percentage white correlates with higher income inequality.
