So Dinosaur Jr. “remixed” this Phoenix track, and it’s pretty much right in all the right ways.

But if Portman can turn around on one issue once he realizes how it touches his family personally, shouldn’t he take some time to think about how he might feel about other issues that don’t happen to touch him personally? Obviously the answers to complicated public policy questions don’t just directly fall out of the emotion of compassion. But what Portman is telling us here is that on this one issue, his previous position was driven by a lack of compassion and empathy. Once he looked at the issue through his son’s eyes, he realized he was wrong. Shouldn’t that lead to some broader soul-searching? Is it just a coincidence that his son is gay, and also gay rights is the one issue on which a lack of empathy was leading him astray? That, it seems to me, would be a pretty remarkable coincidence. The great challenge for a senator isn’t to go to Washington and represent the problems of his own family. It’s to try to obtain the intellectual and moral perspective necessary to represent the problems of the people who don’t have direct access to the corridors of power.

Tumblr loosened its stance on advertising and started displaying paid content in its dashboard last year, and now it seems similar ads will come to its mobile application soon. According to Bloomberg, Tumblr VP Derek Gottfrid said that the service would start integrating ads into its mobile app sometime during the first half of 2013.
