    Matt O’Brien discusses a new paper showing how even “poor kids who do everything right don’t do much better than rich kids who do everything wrong”: You can see that in the above chart, based on a new paper from Richard Reeves and Isabel Sawhill, presented at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston’s annual conference, which is underway. Specifically, rich high school dropouts remain in the top about as much as poor college grads stay stuck in the bottom — 14 versus 16 percent, respectively. Not only that, but these low-income strivers are just as likely to end up in the bottom…

The HCMST, which began in 2009, is a nationally representative survey of 3,009 couples, of which 471 are same-sex.

    One of our midterm correspondents from the in-tray directs our attention to a “very important underreported story” in the Lone Star State: It’s not getting the attention it deserves here because of the sad state of both the news media and the Texas Democratic Party. You are probably aware that Texas is voting on all of its statewide offices in next month’s general election because of the Greg Abbott-Wendy Davis match-up for governor. That is the only statewide election that has received any significant press coverage. This is likely due to Rick Perry’s retirement…

In order to definitively defeat the Islamic State, or IS, group, they need moderate Sunni Muslims in Iraq to support their fight against IS – often because they are the ones living inside the cities…

    From a blogger in the region: Following international media reporting, it is easy to think about war only in terms of uniforms, boots and steel. But the war against the Islamic state has a different face in Iraq. Contrary to the popular game where scissor beats paper, paper will be the biggest threat to the steel of scissors of both Iraqi and Kurdish defenses. Money is scarce.
