In “Getting Educated about Working Class Whites,” Nathan Lauster analyzes ANES data and finds that income now has a very weak relationship to vote preference once you control for education.

A weekly link round-up of sociological work – work by sociologists, referencing sociologists, or just of interest to sociologists. This scatterplot feature is co-produced with Mike Bader.

This week features many links to other great blogs. Rumors of the death of blogs are greatly exaggerated!

Sociology of Science

Work and Inequality

Sociology of Law

Economic Sociology

Urban Sociology

Etc.

Every time we went to the supermarket, my mom would give me a quarter to play Pac Man. As a good socialist kid, I thought the goal of the game was to help Pac Man, who was stranded in a maze and needed to find his friends, who were looking for him.

My games didn’t last very long.

The correct way to play Pac Man, of course, is to consume as much as possible while running from the ghosts that relentlessly pursue you. This was a valuable early lesson in what it means to be an American.
