President Obama has released the long-form version of his birth certificate in an attempt to quell the unflaggable “birther” movement and get the news media to notice when he names a new secretary of defense. Donald Trump immediately took credit. “Today I am very proud of myself,” he said. This is in contrast to normal days, when Trump is continually walking around in an existential funk,...
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.– Ralph Waldo Emerson (via dereknicoletto) The editor of one of my book projects wrote this to me once in response to my queries and edits to a book manuscript he was developing the content for. This is really a gunshot wound to the face for somebody whose job it is to ensure consistency and...
If support for gay marriage were to continue... →
Past trends, of course, are no guarantee of future ones, and it’s always possible that the momentum toward increasing support for gay marriage could flatten out or even reverse itself.

The ambitious plan, drafted principally by Representative Paul D. Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who chairs the Budget Committee, proposes not only to limit federal spending and reconfigure major federal health programs, but also to rewrite...

So, in usual fashion, I’m looking up things to read on Wikipedia. Two recent faves: List of non-fictional bears Winnipeg the Bear There’s something very sad about both of these articles.
