Erin explains the division of parental labor in the Lewis-DeLullo household, and Bill describes the pleasures of being a father who works from home. Happy Mother’s Day!

The Glenn Show
On The Glenn Show, the topic is affirmative action. Glenn fears the Supreme Court will issue a broad anti-affirmative action ruling. Does the kind of indirect affirmative action practiced by Texas’s top 10% system do more harm than good? John and Glenn debate whether affirmative action’s time has simply passed. Glenn challenges John on whether hiring preferences for women should be done away with as well. John cites his biracial daughter as someone who should not receive affirmative action. They close by discussing class-based affirmative action and the mismatch hypothesis.

Turning to the NBA, they discuss Jason Collins’s decision to come out of the closet. Why has it taken so long for professional sports to catch up to the rest of the culture?
