Auguring the Eschaton III
Oh, gosh. Look at this.
It is coming.
(Nod to MWT and JB. But you need to WRITE, not CLICK)
Credibly promising to be irresponsible...since 2004!
Oh, gosh. Look at this.
Playmakers Rep in Chapel Hill is doing "Not About Heroes."
Or in New York. Or retired. The question is, after Rather, who be the CBS anchortroll?
Took my sons over to the house of fellow prof.
How embarrassing. Shujaat is just making a mistake here, equating Jenin and Falujah.
You may have seen this, but:
I am on radio shows in Canada now and again. My favorite gig is on Charles Adler's zoo in Winnipeg on CJOB. (for Adler: think of your conservative uncle Murray on crystal meth, and REALLY pissed off; very funny guy).
Was listening to Jethro Tull in the coche de Grease yesterday. Haven't heard "Broadsword" in years.
Came across this image.
I am stunned that people think the corruption of the UN is "news." The oil for food program in Iraq was just the latest in a sorry, sordid string of failures and outrages for the world's most self-righteous organization.
For a sympathetic view, see Shujaat's portrayal of the Palestinian leader.
Which of the following is least surprising:
This WSJ article was written by Robert Bartley in September, 2003. Pretty shrewd observations, and came to be more true than ever 14 months later.
Jeez, I'm going to get my ass kicked.
Remember the words from "The Wall"?
Dulce et decorum est. It never changes.
Golly sakes alive. From our own excellent "independent" (meaning uncomprehendingly left out) newspaper: Melinda Ruley wants to force us to be free.
CBS NEWS interrupted the final minutes of Wednesday night's episode of CSI: NEW YORK in order to air a special report about the death of Yasser Arafat.
Why do you taunt somebody?
Can reasonable people disagree? Can people who disagree be reasonable?
From a gentle reader....
Wow. Pretty strong indictment, here, from the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Maybe John Kerry was talking about this poor kid.
As is well known by any sophomore economics student, it is orthodox to claim that there are three kinds of market failure: information, externalities, and economies of scale. However, in some ways these are the least important “failures” of markets. I have been thinking about the problem of the failures of markets in a larger context....Here, it seems to me, are the REAL market failures, all of which involve the failure of the state:
Two H.L. Mencken quotes, for the Dems crying in their beer this week. The point is that it is hard for someone who believes in the wisdom of “the people” to accept it when “the people” disagree. I happened upon these two quotes in something I wrote some time ago, and they seemed to have a particular freshness....My favorite part is the bit where he says: "What I can’t make out is how any man can believe in democracy who feels for and with [common citizens], and is pained when they are debauched and made a show of." Dems? How about the show last Tuesday? Weren't your common citizens debauched and made a show of?
1. Never a good sign when gold hits record high prices; you don't own gold to make money, you own gold to avoid holding money, in case money becomes worthless
I quoted James Carville, when I was doing an interview with the WaPo.
I forgot I wrote this, about how the South would be one tough nut to crack for Kerry.
I have to highlight a comment from a gentle reader to the post about faculty on the left not insisting that their students make good arguments. Here is the comment:
Here is Phillip Kurian's follow-up piece.
1. Does Terry McAuliffe have to resign? Or can he say "At least we built a really nice DNC building in DC, even though we got hammered again under my nonleadership"? Cause the building is all they've got now.
And it looks a lot like his face.
Drove by several "polling places" this morning, driving my kids' carpool (M-Th am is my gig).
I tried to invoke the country song once before, with (shall we say) limited success in terms of amusement value. Still, I did offer some truly sage remarks, considering it was July 25.
Folks are getting all het up about the Rehnquist replacement "recess appointment." Like here, or here. Because, what if the election has to be decided by the Supreme Court?
Well, he says this:
JMPP suggests that my earlier loathing for the youth or disgust with wholesomeness might be remedied simply by sharing information on the alternatives. As opposed to this, which clearly does not involve actual sex.
