Ten views

Nicholas has tagged me to name ten views I hold without evidence. It's been a reasonably productive day, so I guess I'm free to play...

1. Ezra Klein could beat over 85% of male right-wing bloggers in a fight, provided that he was sufficiently pissed off.
2. Coldplay's Chris Martin is basically a nice guy, but not very bright.
3. 100 years from now, people will regard Reasons and Persons more highly than A Theory of Justice.
4. The Suns have the best shot to beat the Pistons, since they can get downcourt before Detroit can set up its defense.
5. There's an innovative and successful NFL offense to be constructed around running quarterbacks, but nobody has tried it yet.
6. I'll be content with what I get from the philosophy job market next year.
7. Feminist bloggers are significantly prettier than the general population. (Okay, pictures are available on the web, and I have some evidence, but not enough.)
8. Brian Leiter isn't too irritated that I'm taking extra time working on the intro to Nietzsche and Morality (sorry it's taking so long, Brian. It'll be good!)
9. The girl I eventually marry will either be from a small town in a red state, or from another English-speaking country.
10. In increasing tragicness of assassination: John, Bobby, Martin, Abraham.

I'm a latecomer to this meme, so I think most of my friends have done it. If you're on my blogroll or you've commented on one of my posts and you'd like to do this one, consider yourself nominated.

I'm totally down with #7.

You were one of the people I was thinking of! And Jill, and Shakes and Tart, and Lindsay, and Amanda. I know that's not enough evidence for a generalization, but it's really striking.

#9, indeed, because we're so exotic ;) (linked here from Bunny's, nice)

No way on Reasons and Persons. Too much of it has an unfinished feel, and it is up and down. TJ is going to hang tough.
