WORDS, WORDS, WORDS: More taglines for the New Penguin Shakespeare. Here are two from me: TWELFTH NIGHT: Clown: Why, 'some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrown upon them.' I was one, sir, in this interlude; one Sir Topas, sir; but that's all one. 'By the Lord, fool, I am not mad.' But do you remember? 'Madam, why laugh you at such a barren rascal? an you smile not, he's gagged:' and thus the whirligig of time brings in his revenges.A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM: … [Read more...]

Tattoo on the blogwatch Which says, "Beware, behave, be mine!"...Had a terrific conversation with Terry "About Last Night" Teachout, over Indian buffet.

Powerful.Agenda Bender: "Parastone Studios is an outnetherlandish enterprise which renders figures and objects from assorted famous paintings in three dimensions, it knocks the flat out of 'em … [Read more...]

One night in Blogwatch makes a hard man humble...The Pope Blog: For all your Pope News needs. Seriously, I'm surprised this niche wasn't already filled, but welcome to the Popeblogger.Reason's "hopes and fears for the 2Bush2 term" piece. I'm most thoroughly in agreement with Tyler Cowen, Daniel Drezner, and to a lesser extent Bob Barr; but it's all worth reading.This Policy Review piece on the demographic crash is fascinating and you should read it. I'm already wondering how some of this … [Read more...]

One night in Blogwatch and the world's your oyster...Amy Welborn, spurred by this Jonah Goldberg piece on "Groundhog Day," is asking readers to suggest movies that are shallow on the outside, deep on the inside.

FEASTING WITH PANTHERS: So I spent this past weekend in New Haven. I was spending time with my college debating society, for their annual banquet (hence the title of this post). I have a few things to say about the weekend, but, on the car ride back home, I realized that most of those things circle around a central theme.I spent a weekend with people who, for the most part, think the world is a very hard place, and if you find something good you should fight like hell to protect it. These are … [Read more...]
