     People, however sincere and passionate, err when they demand art censorship. Such people nearly always err artistically and always err philosophically. Art --  even art majorities for a time insists is not art  --  must be subject to the marketplace-in-ideasRead full post »

Woman Steals Leg At Eagles Game

     My fellow Philadelphia sports fans tend to be proudly crude. Legendary are stories of fans booing and hurling ice-chunk snowballs at Santa, fans so drunk and boorish that the bowels of old Veterans Stadium and the new Linc, are home to make-shift court rooms manned and womRead full post »


      Scott Roeder, the Kansas murderer of gynecologist George Tiller, was, in April, 2010, sentenced to 50 years. He'll be then eligible for parole. His sentence was, rightly, doubled by the court because of overwhelming evidence that he'd stalked Dr.

On Opinion, Valid, Invalid

     There are writers with whom we're too generous. Some just do not think very well, follow a thought-thread, compose and lay out their own ideas much beyond invective. I do not think they write largely for shock-value; most aren't feigning. This is to say:  not all expre

I Learned (My 5+)

In the past month or so? I've learned...

people, as a potential solution to political disagreement,

aside from Israel and Jews, ever been raised in modern civil
