Your Bitter Hilarity for the Day

From the BBC:

Blair to teach in the US on faith

Tony Blair will take part in a number of events around the Yale campus
Tony Blair is to teach students at Yale University in the US when he leads a seminar on faith and globalisation.

Now this is laughable. I can only presume that he’ll teach some neo-liberal economic theory, instead of faith contradicting or critiquing his economics. This stinks of politics, networking and academic one-upmanship. He is a “catch” because he won’t rock the boat, kinda like Bono, Jeffry Sachs, and the Gates Foundation. The economy won’t save the poor, it’ll have to be the community of faith at the margins. Wallstreet, 5th Avenue, and the Hamptons doesn’t give a damn about the homeless, other than keeping them out of their view.
