He was behind some of my favorite movies. And evidently he was quite a nice gentleman, too…
Piers Morgan was not available for comment: Ukrainians demand their own “Second Amendment” after government massacre in Kiev.
Actually, he was. But no one was interested…
Patch it up! Why Apple’s Recent Security Flaw Is So Scary.
The worst part is OSX is also affected, but there’s no fix for it yet. Only fire iOS…
He’s right, you know? This isn’t quite over. Not until old Ivan says so. And in light of the way Washington allowed the Russians to assert themselves in Syria…Well, you just can’t expect Russia to go quietly into the night about Ukraine, which has been one of their satellites for decades.
No surprise. If academic freedom is now deemed ‘unjust’, what hope is there for a student’s freedom of belief?
Didn’t they get the memo? It’s only television. You’re not supposed to take all that ‘social justice’ rhetoric seriously…
Frontiers of Advocacy: Harvard Feminist Says Academic Freedom Should Be Abolished.
Thousands of dollars in tuition for that?
Your Moment of Nerd: The True Detective Week Five Nerd-Out.
So many theories, so little time. This level of obsession over the show’s meaning and narrative possibilities has caught on with blogs and entertainment journalists like a wildfire. I suppose if there’d been a worldwide web back when Twin Peaks was on the air we’d see something similar.
On a related note, I’m just glad David Lynch isn’t directing this season of True Detective. I’m not ready for my mind to explode. Not this year, anyway…
Well, let’s not be too harsh on him. Perhaps the journalism profession is not what it used to be; and expecting a well-established WaPo columnist to grasp a treatise by Hayek is just plain unreasonable. But that’s no problem. That’s why we have cartoons!
The Coming Clown Stimulus? National clown shortage may be approaching, trade organizations fear.

His convictions are stronger than hate: ‘Who Gives a Crap About Your Feelings Towards Walmart?’: Mike Rowe’s Fiery, 2,648-Word Response to His Recent Haters.
Good for Mike for speaking out. Anti-Walmart sentiment from progressives is rooted in ignorance, like any form of bigotry (and certainly in Big Labor activism as well). And while there is much to dislike about big corporations getting in bed with government, gratuitous anti-corporate feeling is reactionary and empty of any intellectual underpinning. It’s hate for the sake of hate, spouted by angry know-nothings.
