Imagine Earth without people! That is exactly what Bob Holmes does in an article for New Scientist.
Elucidative map of Middle East politics in the last few milennia. A must for most of us.. and them ...
THANK YOU Nancy Applebaum at the WasPost for so elequantly point a very obvious cultural argument. We respect other people's cultural differences, as long as it doesn't imply violence in against women and children, so please accept ours. Nothing does get my blood going more than seeing a fully covered woman. Free will? In some , I'de say a minority of cases. Otherwise, look at what goes on in Saudi Arabia or the long gone Taliban regime, and then talk to me about free will for women. I challenge all the women wearing veils to go live in societies where they are obligatory and not an option.
Help this woman recover her WEB GEEK plate. I would be bummed too.

Decline and fall...

George Will in today Post op-ed calls government, not just this one I suppose, a "a teaspoon of pond water viewed under a microscope -- a teeming, disorderly maelstrom of sometimes rival life forms", with which I would tend to agree, changing just a little word; not water pond but petri dish....
Eugene Robinson has it just right in his op-ed; besides the fact that THIS scandal is so out there, so full of twisted and sick ironies, there is some spin out there trying to blame George Soros and his Foundation for the breaking open of the whole story. Ehy, it's blame the demon rum AND the Jew...the fact is it was a fully grown man , in a position of power, great power, it seems, that was sending e mails to minors with content for the prosecution of which, he helped write and promote legislation. And has been seen on TV with the clear and calm demeanor of someone who is at peace with himself calling people like him "sickos that deserve to be put away forever..." God, they really think that they are impune, don't they. This is starting to look more and more like the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. Read your history folks and weep.
