The medium is not the message

I won­der what exactly Jonathan Franzen is think­ing. I’ve read his The Corrections, and wasn’t that wowed by it, which doesn’t really mean much except that one book of his I read didn’t res­onate with me in the same way that his other books seem to res­onate with many other read­ers. But then he tells an […]

Speculations on a civilization 1000 years dead

I forgot about this

So many pres­sures from so many fronts lately, and I for­got about this, this thing I saw. I’m not sure why I… So I was tod­dling off to get shots of our imag­ing mag­nets, which aren’t inter­est­ing since they resem­ble, mostly, plastic-​​​​wrapped donuts large enough to drive a bike through. But our cam­pus is sprawled, and I had to cross surface […]

On the other hand…

Anent my com­ments ear­lier, Saudi Arabia is a Muslim theoc­racy and the home state of vir­tu­ally all of the 11 September hijack­ers. There’s vir­tu­ally noth­ing that I’m likely to agree with, if it’s based in Saudi law. Virtually noth­ing. Reuters tells us, via Boing Boing: A Saudi court of cas­sa­tion upheld a rul­ing to behead and cru­cify a 22-​​​​year-​​​​old […]

Just in time to make Halloween feel a little safer…

…John Evander Couey, a piece of human filth who raped a nine-​​​​year-​​​​old girl (prob­a­bly repeat­edly) in 2005, then buried her alive and left her to die and who was later given the cap­i­tal sen­tence for his vile deeds, did us all a favor by drop­ping dead yes­ter­day. He man­aged to show a lit­tle ini­tia­tive at last, and did it […]

You know why the town hall meetings are being disrupted?

It’s because, unlike Bush, Obama hasn’t set up “free speech zones” to cor­ral pro­test­ers miles away from where the events are actu­ally tak­ing place. There’s a lot this admin­is­tra­tion could be doing bet­ter, but only the most hard­line Kool-​​​​Aid swill­ing Birthtard would dis­agree that this sin­gle change is, on bal­ance, an improvement.
