I don’t know Katie Everson, but she put this out on Facebook recently and it’s great. I’m a bit of a fanboy of academics and researchers, so I’ve read a few scientific papers of this type. They mostly go kind of like this: Hi, this is who I am and here are my co-authors. Here […]
People need to know what’s going on around them, and there needs to be a way to make that available in a sustainable way, and hardcopy metro daily papers isn’t it.
Get off social media. Get on blogs of people you know and like.
I was listening to some old episodes of the “On The Media” podcast today. Here’s one that got my attention: “Impossible!” The first segment is funny. Jonathan Greenberg is incredulously telling the story of how Trump got onto the Forbes list of richest people (in the 1980s) by talking fast and bullshitting him, and in […]

If your municipality is so broke that people are driving on the sidewalks to avoid potholes in the street, so broke that you can’t imagine ever paying a realistic tort judgment against your police force, and so […]

Yeah, that’s kind of a reach. I’m not the person who says don’t share things from Rawstory because it’s fake news. I’m the person who says […]
A friend shared this essay recently on Facebook, highlighted by “The #MeToo moment has now morphed into a moral panic that poses as much danger to women as it does to men.” Wow. What a mess. This author is jumping all over the place with a thesis that changes every few paragraphs. It’s hard to […]
I’ve been listening to “The CleCast” selectively for a little while now. I don’t bother with every single episode; there are so many, and they’re kind of long, and I’m not interested in all the topics. But I do want to say this. First of all, it’s a really good show. Dan and Brian ask […]
