Well, hell, it’s her bass, but I wouldn’t do it to mine

On the other hand, it sure sounds good every time I hear it:

Quote of the Day

Posted on February 03, 2010
From Ed Whitney, commenting at The Reality-Based Community: Well, I guess I am turning into a new kind of birther. I have no doubts whatever that Obama was born in the United States, but I am beginning to wonder if he ever lived in Chicago.

Songs with which I’ve sung Quincy to sleep over the years

Posted on November 11, 2009
“America the Beautiful”, known between Quincy and myself as “Oh Beautiful” “My Ride’s Here”, which didn’t have a name I can think of tonight “Come As You Are”, which Quincy asked for as “Drenched in Mud” I’ve sung others, but those over and over (and I never really got tired of them).

“Tomorrow’s Election Analysis Tonight”

“We would much rather get rid of racism than get rid of poverty.”

Posted on November 03, 2009
Okay, this one really is via Will Shetterly: Today, says David Brooks, ?the rich don’t exploit the poor, they just out-compete them.? And if out-competing people means tying their ankles together and loading them down with extra weight while hiring yourself the most expensive coaches and the best practice facilities, he’s right...

Two Cartoons

Posted on November 01, 2009
The first one doesn’t have the greatest artwork, but it is funny and it is my life. The second one (via Will Shetterly Steve Caldwell) is like if Randall Munroe had a degree in theology.

My Own Private FakeAPStylebook Entry

Don’t get your Lincolns confused. Abraham Lincoln: Democrat. Blanche Lincoln: Republican.

“Kanye interrupts himself interrupting Taylor Swift”

Posted on September 20, 2009
Exactly as the title says.

I salute you brother

Posted on September 13, 2009
Jim Carroll is dead. I still think of him as Hawk from “Time Considered As A Helix Of Semi-Precious Stones”. I always will.

“A concept album about finding a halfway decent song for Ringo”

Posted on September 13, 2009
Now hitting on all 16 cylinders, the Beatles bolted back to the woodshed for The Beatles, a blandly designed masterwork that could inspire any reasonable citizen of California to launch a race war. To this day, we don?t know much about the four men who comprised the Beatles, but listening to this exceedingly non-black album [...

Warning! The Swine Flu vaccine is a government plot…

Posted on September 12, 2009
…to keep you healthy. That is all.

“The debt of gratitude he is owed makes it all the more horrifying, therefore, that he was treated so inhumanely.”

Posted on September 11, 2009
For once, I don’t have words of my own to add: The Prime Minister has released a statement on the Second World War code-breaker, Alan Turing, recognising the ?appalling? way he was treated for being gay. Alan Turing, a mathematician most famous for his work on breaking the German Enigma codes, was convicted of ?gross indecency? in [...

“They smelled white trash, and they sneered.”

Posted on July 08, 2009
It’s wonderful, isn’t it, to hit a piece of writing that runs right along ideas you’d just been mulling over and thinking of how to express? Not just your thoughts, different in some particulars, but right up next to yours: Our congregational culture proves to be a barrier to many people who would otherwise love to [...

“We made the distinction of loving the child, but ridiculing the man.”

Posted on July 02, 2009
More empathy for an easy target: When the signs started to become clear, that the boy wasn?t right, that he was too isolated, underdeveloped, imperfect - we laughed, we stared, we assumed. He was our first boyfriend before he became our crazy cousin - always family...

“I think he should choose life.”

Posted on July 02, 2009
It’s distressing when a right-wing figure is involved in a sexual pecadillo, just as it was with Mark Sanford. First come the left-wing homophobes, explaining that he’s obviously a closeted gay. Next the gloating over hypocrisy, which (unlike the gay-baiting) has an ethical leg to stand on, until the glee begins to wear on me...

Under the Watchful Cyborg Eyes of the Benton County Sheriff

Posted on June 25, 2009
It’s a darned shame they don’t have this sort of technology in Iran. It would’ve made stopping those demonstrators a whole lot easier. And those civil rights people in the south? They never would have been out of the observation of the police...

“Why it’s a mistake to call Mark Sanford a hypocrite”

Posted on June 25, 2009
Read the whole thing: As several people have noted, in a sane world Sanford’s previous attempt to increase the misery of the poor people in South Carolina would be a much greater disability than his forgetfulness about his marriage vows. This one, too: Ken Starr set a rotten example, and it would be too bad if his critics [...

Blogroll Addition: Michael Yates, Cheap Motels and a Hot Plate

Posted on June 24, 2009
Michael Yates posts infrequently, and when he does, it’s meaty: Economists never say much about work. They talk about the supply of and the demand for labor, but they have very little to say about the nature of the work we do. Like most commentators, they seem to believe that modern economies will require ever more [...

Hey, Kids! Try This Trick from Tehran at Home!

Posted on June 24, 2009
As you can see from the Michael Yates post I linked to yesterday, many of us on the left are rooting for the people of Iran who went out in the streets to protest what they believed to be a stolen election. Now, here’s a thought experiment for you: What do you think would have happened [...

“music, sweet music, I wish I could caress, and kiss”

Posted on June 23, 2009
This came to me through an email list Michael Yates and I are on: A few years after our move, I suffered a bout of depression. I thought that this was because of some problems with our children and disgust with my job. It got so bad that I went into therapy...

Blogroll Addition: Wendell Griffen

Posted on June 21, 2009
Wendell Griffen is a prinicipled and outspoken man, a potent combination which cost him re-election to the Arkansas Court of Appeals. Now he has a blog and we are the better for it: The fact that dangerous people exist who will do dangerous and even deadly things is no excuse for contaminating the gospel of God’s [...

Self-Help for Commenters

Posted on June 21, 2009
Could you be a member of the lunatic fringe? Here are some symptoms: Are your comments longer than the article to which you respond? Do you cut and paste huge amounts of text? Do you write more than all other commenters combined? Do you have these symptoms? Does someone you love? Get help now! It’s never too late to leave [...

From Tragedy Comes A Training Opportunity

Posted on June 20, 2009
I’ve been following this terrible, terrible story with the sick dread a parent of a young child feels*, and looking for something good that might come from it. In the follow-up, I may have found it: On Monday at 4:35 p.m., Katrina Markley reported her two children missing from their duplex at 347-A Sage St...

“We have no proof that he is an American citizen–or for that matter, an earthling!”

Posted on June 20, 2009
Barack Obama, exposed! Ten minutes in, the fraud becomes clear.. (via Mashable)

“This bespells doom”

Posted on June 20, 2009
At least it bespells it correctly.

What I’m going to tell my daughter sometime during her teens

Posted on June 20, 2009
With any luck, you’re going to get to have sex thousands and thousands of times in your life. Try to enjoy it every time. Get contraception, NOW! so you aren’t bound to your biology. Practice safer sex. Experiment. Find out who and what you want...

Woman Dead, Police Negligent? Judge Cox Yawns

Posted on June 10, 2009
This is an outrage: FORT SMITH ? A Sebastian County circuit judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing Fort Smith police of negligence after a woman was fatally stabbed in a busy intersection. Circuit Judge James O. Cox dismissed the suit filed by relatives of Christina Springs, who was stabbed to death by her estranged husband, Thomas Springs, [...

Local Boy Makes Good (at first. for a while. and then…)

Posted on June 07, 2009
I’d lost track of Vidoop after they moved out of Tulsa till this post from Chris Messina last Friday: When I was laid off from Vidoop last month, I didn?t so much as tweet about it. The circumstances were different this time. But because the lack of information coming from the company is disappointing (if not [...

Discuss: The Greatest Generation was the sixties generation

Posted on June 07, 2009
Think about it: Civil rights–really, a second (this time successful) reconstruction. Ending the Vietnam War. Second-wave feminism. Gay liberation. When you come right down to it, The Future. I’d been thinking along these lines before running into this piece by Chris Hayes (via a commenter on Making Light), who goes at the question from a whole [...

Backdated May Day post

Posted on May 01, 2009
So why May Day? Because the work’s not done: LITTLE ROCK ? Five Arkansas men are charged in a federal indictment in connection with a cross-burning incident in Donaldson, the Justice Department said Friday… The indictment, unsealed on Friday, alleges that from June 15 to June 21 the men were involved in a conspiracy to drive a [...
