I've given you plant food, I've given you dirt; You've given me nothing But blogwatch and hurt...Jon Rowe: Rorschach (of Watchmen fame), Allan Bloom, Nietzsche. I disagree with Jon about Leo Strauss (even though I wrote a B-minus level paper making the case for Jon's position!) but this is definitely worth your time.

I ALWAYS THOUGHT OF "DRINK CANADA DRY" AS A CHALLENGE: So I totally forgot to post the replies to my "come up with a recipe for this fabulous drink name!" contest. Here they are. Feel free, of course, to send belated entries!John Hutchins: Some friends and I, in college, did the same thing. A drink mixing party, that is. It, also, was not quite a success. And the failure is kind of embarrassing as we were working on just one name and what should have been an easy one.The name was prompted by … [Read more...]

IT'S THE PICTURES THAT GOT SMALL: Sandra Miesel writes.

Email me if you've got something to say about any of these posts.The series so far: Sunrise, Sunset: Marriage, children, mortality, and singing Jews.Marriage … [Read more...]
