- Spare me! Mark Fuhrman — he of OJ trial fame — has a book coming out next week on “the untold story of Terri Schiavo’s death.” Wasn’t the woman’s death enough of a circus without importing some of the stink of the OJ carnival? Has no one the decency to leave this woman in peace?
- Moving from the abhorrent to the philosophical, Scott Esposito at Conversational Reading has an interesting post to the new appeal of Jean Paul Sartre. (And I also loved his photo of four men trying to help Bush find the direction in which he has sent the nation.)
- The author of The Anarchist Cookbook has renounced his book on Amazon, calling it “a misguided and potentially dangerous publication which should be taken out of print.” (Via Blog of a Bookslut).
- SD political notes: Thumbs up to the self-described GOP moderates forming the South Dakota Mainstream Coalition. Thumbs down to Sen. Tim Johnson for not only supporting but being a sponsor of legislation proposing a constitutional amendment to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag. A companion version passed the House Wednesday.
The fact that I have no remedy for all the sorrows of the world is no reason for my accepting yours.
