The Wrong Stuff migrates to Slate!

I'm delighted to announce that, as of today, The Wrong Stuff will be temporarily hosted over at Slate, the fabulous online magazine of politics and culture.  You can read the introductory blog post here.  Short summaries and links to the latest posts will continue to appear on this site, but the posts themselves will appear on Slate.  Thanks for traveling over there with me for a while. 

Okay, maybe you don’t have strong beliefs about the “right” way to load a dishwasher, or about your sweetheart’s propensity to do it “wrong.” In that case, either you are unusually saintly or (like me) you don’t own a dishwasher. But you almost certainly get involved in domestic disputes about who’s right and who’s wrong all the time; we all do. Although interpersonal arguments can have a number of causes – from serious and painful breaches in trust to the fact that we haven’t had our coffee yet – an impressive number of them amount to a tug-of-war over who possesses the truth. We fight over the right to be right.
