Well, I'm not really sure why my posting caused such a reaction in
Pearse. I didn't feel -- while writing it and now re-reading it -- that
the opinions expressed were so awful as to generate that reproach.
Anyway, it is my understanding that postings to the newsgroups do not
have to be thoroughly researched journal-approprate articles, especially
when qualified with "just a thought". If this is not the case, please
let me know.
I think perhaps I did not make myself clear about what I was referring to ...
Though the posting was titled the Bell Curve, I was referring to the many
"studies" presented in the popular media: newspapers, television, books.
I truly believe that this onslaught is related to changing social
and professional relations, and perceptions of inequality in job opportunities.
