From: Jonathan Prince To: kihansen@badlands.NoDak.edu Subject: The Bell Curve Date: Wed, 12 Apr 1995 20:24:18 -0400 (EDT) > Was it not Charles Murray who wrote the book "Losing Ground" as well? yeah he wrote the book. I remember seeing an interview with Murrey when the Bell Curve came out. He said that when he wrote that book he proposed (I haven't read the book so I dont know for sure) that state run orphanages(sp?) should be brought back. He gloated over the idea that the idea is now considered 'in the mainstream' nowadays and went on to say that he originally mentioned the idea only to upset Liberals and not to be taken too seriously. Appearantly, even Murrey is amazed at how far Right this country has gone.
