MICKEY KAUS is defending the Los Angeles Times’ Sebastian Rotella against assaults from Andrew Sullivan and many other parts of the Blogosphere. But I think Kaus himself is wrong when he says, “Europe’s only just begun to deal with the problem of welfare-subsidized ghettos.” A fairer statement would be that Europe has only just begun to acknowledge the problem of welfare-subsidized ghettos. Actual dealing will come later, if at all.
