False Claims / Empty Beliefs: Why is this not a comedy?   A month or two ago it was brought to my attention that, as there are Holocaust deniers, so there are now those (in Iran, for example) who say that some or all of the “Charlie Hebdo” events in Paris did not happen. The […]

(Warning: The above video depicts or describes the murder of several individuals, including children.) The recent shooting in Copenhagen, like most terrorist acts, was reprehensible, unforgivable, ineffective, and immature. At the same time, holding a free speech conference in Copenhagen seems somewhat masturbatory. According to the Committee To Protect Journalists, no Danish journalists have been killed since […]

We could’ve had us children, We could’ve had a home— But you thought not, and I thought not, And these nine years we roam. Today I worked in the deep dark tanks, And climbed out to watch the sea: Gulls and salty waves pass by, And mountains of Araby. I’ve travelled the lonely oceans And wandered the...
