Miss Lucy is still with us. She has good days and bad days. Yesterday she perked up a bit and wanted to snuggle and purr for a while, but today she’s keeping to herself.
I am very, very busy and can’t linger here long. Here’s stuff I would write about if I had time to write about it.
Timothy Noah, “Theoretical Egalitarians: Why income distribution can’t be crowd-sourced.” More interesting than it sounds.
Peter Daou, “How a Handful of Liberal Bloggers Are Bringing Down the Obama Presidency.” I’m not necessarily endorsing Peter’s view, but there’s lots to discuss here. I never thought the liberal blogosphere should march in lockstep with the Democratic Party; far from it. However, I do get irritated with the hysterical, anti-Obama hyperbole on some liberal blogs. One can be critical where criticism is due without sorting everyone in the world into “us” versus “them” piles.
Bob Herbert, “What Is Paladino About?” Some pretty sick stuff, apparently.
