Time Event
My house opened for lunch today!
Woo hoo! Now i only have to brave the frigid 4 times a day (back and forth for 2 interterm classes) instead of 10 times (3 meals a day, back and forth).
"How to make MLK Day popular" by Steve Sailer

full text here if you don't feel like following the linkCollapse )

My dad said "or even make it the Friday before Labor Day. After all, he was killed while supporting garbage workers." I didn't know that.
"Homeland Insecurities" -- civil liberties conference at Smith
My cheap-ass vegetarian cooking interterm class is 3:15-5:15, so i think i am going to skip on Thursday and Friday to attend some of the conference events.

Here’s what i want to attend. cut for everyone who doesn't careCollapse )

and in preparation, an e-mail exchange with a Smith professor about Newton Arvin, et al, from a while agoCollapse )
You know you love that i’m a big stalker.
Today i learned that Sara’s friend Ana’s real name is Anyaluz Pinto Rosenbloom. I think that is the best name ever.
Tell me again why Saddam is a good person and we shouldn’t war on him?
"Scorched earth: Saddam guilty of genocide for destroying the Marsh Arabs' way of life, critics say" by Patrick Graham

Seriously, i’m consistently pro-life (vegetarian, pacifist, opposed to abortion and the death penalty), so i’m up for alternatives to war because really, increasing death and suffering is NOT something i want at all, but that’s just the problem... death and suffering is going on all over the place, all the time, and people, especially people with power, have a moral obligation to stop that. Things are complicated, i know this, but the more i learn about Iraq, the more i think Saddam has got to go and that the U.S. attacking is the best way for that to happen (and of course along with that comes the obligation to help the people rebuild and all that afterward). It is NOT helpful to just say “War is bad!” because, you know what, LOTS of things are bad, and many of them are worse than war (not to mention the fact that war itself has a whole range of how bad it can be).
Love Takes The Best of You (Catie Curtis)
Every night when I watch you sleep
I want to watch over you forever
Keep you safe with me
And I wish I could promise you a beautiful world
That would never break your heart
Maybe that's what we are here for
We try and fix what comes apart
