Quote of the Day Week

Via Jeff Goldstein:

True diversity, of course, is to be celebrated: a breadth of ideas and worldviews create a vibrant marketplace for ideas and encourage the very kind of intellectual and cultural cross-pollenation that has made this country so successful. But for true diversity to work, it must always—always—be founded on individual diversity, and must eschew easy shortcuts that reduce it to superficialities that are indicative of a the (sic) most banal (and, from an historical perspective, venial) form of diversity.
