The Mobility Myth

Three cheers for Bob Herbert who notes in his NY Times column the ominous and glaring revelations about class disparities that have appeared in the media recently.

People with liberal and leftist sympathies have championed Paul Krugman for flying the flag of sanity at the Grey Lady. Unfortunately, Herbert's contributions as a Times columnist are often overlooked. He deserves equal plaudits for bringing attention to many of the more important developments that run by his desk, like in this case.
