      A song with echoes of a 1950s ballad style, updated by way of early, parodistic Frank Zappa and a dash of electronica, examines a sort of Rumsfeldian cynicism, represented by the assertion that our problems are so complex that only experts can deal with them.

  12. refiguring

      Ethnic and racial identity may be to politics what unified field theory is to physics — that one big unsolved question that lures the best and brightest students with the promise of a deeper reality, and leaves them all tangled like pretzels. Mr. Obama may have come closest to solving the riddle, but even he keeps finding himself refiguring the simple math forced on any local candidate of color, like Mr. Torres Cordero: how to be of the minority culture and yet be a leader among the majority.
