Glenn Loury (Manhattan InstituteBrown University) and Ann Althouse (Althouse)

On The Glenn Show, the first topic is the fallout from the Zimmerman trial. Did activists err by making the case into a cause célèbre? Has Zimmerman himself been racially profiled by his critics? Glenn and Ann weigh the merits of stop-and-frisk policing. Turning to the travails of Anthony Weiner, Glenn doesn’t know what’s wrong with sexting. Wasn’t Eliot Spitzer’s behavior worse? Finally, they discuss the conservative backlash against the Supreme Court’s DOMA ruling, which caused a major rift between Ann and her blog’s commenters.
