I am enlightened
Back when we were students at the University of Wisconsin—Madison, my wife had a very strange experience. She was a grad student working toward a Ph.D. in English, and one of her fellow students was a nun who worked for a small Catholic college near Madison. One day the nun invited Kathy to a special education conference on “The Vocation of Women.” Having been raised Catholic, K... Read more of this blog post »

The new naval treaty permits the United States to spend a billion dollars on warships—a sum greater than has been accumulated by all our endowed institutions of learning in their entire history. Unintelligence could go no further! ... [In Great Britain, the situation is similar.] ... Until the figures are reversed, ... nations deceive themselves as to what they care about most.Abraham Flexner

This is the best book on WW2 out there. It clearly explains the war in terms of economic and political forces, without getting lost--as so many current books do--in the military details. I would strongly recommend this book (and vols 2 & 3) to an...more

“I'm a Skeptic. And I'm a Journalist. I look up things in the library—a lot! I believe in the motto of Missouri, the 'Show-me, don't just blow me' state. I need evidence. I need demonstrations. I need show-and-tell. Even though I pray to God every once in a while, especially when I'm in trouble—which for most guys my age is every 28 days—I still think deeply about the issues and don't automatically jump to a religious or mystical answer to questions. I am, by nature, doubtful about the existence of God, and even whether He is a He or a Her. I don't believe in New Age stuff. For me, 'Past Life Regression' means not calling a girl after she gives me her phone number. Sure I own a lucky rabbit's foot, a lucky penny, a lucky 4-leaf clover and a lucky horeshoe [sic], and a pair of lucky underwear and several pairs of lucky socks that I only wash every seven days. But under it all I am a died–in-the-wool skeptic.”
Earl Lee, Raptured: The Final Daze of the Late, Great Planet Earth

“Bill O'Reilly calls his tv show the "No Spin Zone" but the man is practically a whirling dervish. He combines willful ignorance with a simple child-like faith in the system that, not coincidentally, has made him a millionaire.”
Earl Lee

“Sarah Palin is living proof that you can't make a silk purse out of a horse's ass.”
Earl Lee

“It is impossible to make peace with the Roman Catholic Church. It is one of the permanent enemies of all that is decent in human spirit.”
Harold J. Laski

“INCEST, n. In many parts of the Bible Belt, the most popular form of dating”
Charles Bufe, The Devil's Dictionaries: The Best of the Devil's Dictionary & the American Heretic's Dictionary

“The human race is the most stupid and unfair kind of race. A lot of the runners don't even get decent sneakers or clean drinking water.

Some runners are born with a massive head start, every possible help along the way and still the referees seem to be on their side.

It's not surprising a lot of people have given up compeating altogether and gone to sit in the grandstand, eat junk and shout abuse.

What the human race needs is a lot more streakers.”
Banksy, Cut It Out

Lately I have read the advice given to William Randolph Hearst, when a young man, by his father:
"Go downtown at noon and rob the other fellows of what they have made during the morning.”
E. Haldeman-Julius

“It is a good thing that women are so easily manipulated. Otherwise, most of us wouldn't be here.”
William Randolph Hearst
