- No On Proposition 8 (Aug 18, 2008)
Fellow Californians, I believe this to be a sensible vote — please vote NO on Proposition 8. Thanks! And yes, as a matter of fact, I do have friends whose marriages would be affected by this. You can read more of the history in the wikipedia article same-sex marriage in California.
- Is John McCain Stupid? (Aug 03, 2008)
Daniel Henninger of none other than The Wall Street Journal, asks “Is John McCain Stupid” and basically comes up with the answer, “yes.” Sitting on beaches and wandering around the isle of Maui, I’m far removed from politics this week, but that headline caught my eye.
- And then, I tried to catch up with my blogreading. (Jul 05, 2008)
So I went almost a week without blogging, then the 4th of July happened, and now it’s the weekend. Now I can catch up with some blogreading, and perhaps I’ll share some of the things I find with you. Perhaps I’ll even share some of my own thoughts about this past week. Let’s start, shall […]

My favorite: “Having defeated and then occupied Iraq, democratizing the country should […]
- Barnett and Kunstler on Obama’s Impolitic Words (Apr 14, 2008)
Two iconoclastic thinkers who I think would usually disagree (Barnett is an optimist/realist; Kunstler is nearly apocalypticist) are in complete agreement! This is a nice surprise. James Kunstler (foul language, sorry): Barack Obama caught hell last week for daring to tell the truth about the ragged thing that the American spirit has become. He said […]

Tony Pierce pointed to some writing in his post our biggest story on la times blogs about how “right wing” bloggers were in a tizzy about this ad: I read a few, just a few, and chuckled. We in California live in former Mexican territory. And this ad plays on some of the history with […]
