Jim Bennett posts some characteristically insightful thoughts on assimilation. I hope that his tag line catches on.
UPDATE: Commenter Brock credits the title phrase to Wretchard of The Belmont Club.
UPDATE2: Jim Bennett says he came up with the phrase on his own and has been using it since around 2001, which is before The Belmont Club existed as a blog. My search of Belmont Club’s last two sites turned up no instances of the phrase, but it’s possible that I didn’t search competently. It’s also possible that Wretchard came up with the phrase independently or that he read it first in one of Jim’s pieces. Either way, it’s a great line.
