SPEED READING….At 3:33 PM yesterday Matt Yglesias announced that he was about to go out and try to find Harvard’s anthropology library so that he could check out Jacob Levy’s The Multiculturalism of Fear.

At 4:25 PM today he announced that he had finished reading it.

Sure, it’s only 220 pages, but it doesn’t really sound like light reading. So my question is: did he do a little more skimming than he’s letting on? Or are Harvard students just ungodly bright?
