The dirty little secret of “progressivism” is that progressives don’t really believe their own destructive rhetoric. They don’t send their own children to integrated public schools. They don’t live in minority-majority neighborhoods themselves.
It turns out that the highly educated are less sexually promiscuous, more likely to get married, and less likely to have children out of wedlock.

Foreclosures, plant closings, offshored jobs, underwater mortgages, miserable rates of unemployment, stagnating incomes: Is there any end to the woes of the struggling American middle? Apparently not, because now comes news of a trend guaranteeing trouble ahead for the more than half of the nation that make up the moderately educated and moderately earning middle — even if the economy improves.
