I see your true colors blogging through,I see your true colors, and that's why I watch you...Hugo Schwyzer: "And I am equally prepared to defend the proposition that since English common law had a greater impact upon our contemporary society than legal codes in medieval Mali, they ought to spend more time on the former. Good historians prioritize and rank; good historians draw distinctions, and then engage in vigorous debates with their colleagues about those distinctions."Also, in case it got … [Read more...]

IT JUST TAKES A BEAT/TO TURN IT AROUND: Oh, "The Essential Cyndi Lauper" is the most amazing thing on earth. I'm so in love. There's one dud ("Sisters of Avalon," whatever, please stop reading Mercedes Lackey while smoking pot) and one mediocrity ("Hatful of Stars," shrug), but everything else is sparkling liquid Cyndi. She has the voice that every '80s pop diva (with the possible exception of Annie Lennox and the definite non-exception of Madonna) wanted. She can go from squeaky to … [Read more...]

Some of them are dumb or juvenile or both, but some of them are still pretty interesting; so I figured I'd post excerpts in case you all are interested. These are abridged but otherwise uncorrected. I've indicated notes from my instructors in brackets, and any links should go to posts I think relate somehow to the subject of the paper. So, … [Read more...]

THE DEVIL'S MIRACLES: Excerpts: ...For they come in search of one of the most pioneering--and controversial--medical procedures on the planet: the injection of cells from aborted foetuses into the brains and spines of the sick. And the object of their faith is a Chinese surgeon who spent many of his university years labouring as a peasant and is now conducting trial-and-error experiments on live subjects despite his research being rejected by the western medical establishment. ...
