Gene Healy Picks the Five Worst Op-Eds of 2013


Daniel R. Blume

Picking the year's worst op-eds wasn't easy in 2013. There's the Slate writer who announced you're "a bad person if you send your children to private school"; the New York Times piece arguing that conservative Dallas "willed the death" of JFK (by getting a communist to shoot him?); and the fellow who worried that allowing more high-skilled immigration would exacerbate "America's Genius Glut." If you've been losing sleep over the genius glut in American punditry, writes Gene Healy, rest easy. That threat's a long way off.
