Diffidence and Anticipation

Orin Kerr channels Hobbes a bit.

For my money, the first step toward the restoration of civic order might be a credible effort to get people out of the city. Kerr has CNN reporting that people in the Convention Center are starting to walk out of the city. There's no moral excuse for the violence some people are perpetrating (I suppose Hobbes might disagree) but it's entirely predictable.

And, lest we forget, it's being perpetrated by a minority of the people left behind. I hope this isn't used to demonize all the refugees.
