- Lots of Christmas music to share, but “Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming” is one of the gems people tend to forget about.
- Hazel McKendrick’s “You are Wasps” game is highly addictive. Really enjoy stinging everything and everyone.
- Via Weigel, a look at how survivalism is big business. There’s an irony here, somewhere…
- Regarding the fiscal cliff: if you can’t vote together as a party, then it doesn’t matter if you have a majority. You have little or no control of the House, since the party only exists on paper. Making matters worse in terms of governance – liberals in the House are to the left of Barack Obama.
Coming soon: more Dickinson; Nietzsche; Cavafy & maybe something on optimism.
