You say "Breitbart," I say "Onion." Sometimes it is hard to tell what is serious and what is parody. Regrettably, this article by Austin Ruse at Breitbart is not parody: "European Royalty Appeals to Pope Francis on Church Teaching." I must say, looking to people whose families famously undertook marriages for reasons of state, seems like a strange place to look for moral guidance. 

At the Atlantic, Gillian White on the gap between wages and productivity in her interview with Jan Rivkin.
