2009 Jan 21: random comments and links

* Watched Daily Show and Colbert Tuesday. Highlights: a compare-and-contrast of Bush and Obama, making the point that a lot of rhetoric is actually pretty similar; and a brief interview with Gene Robinson.
Stewart: "What was it like moving through the crowds, handicapped, since bishops can only move diagonally?"
Robinson: "You forget Jon, there was a queen on the board as well."

* Ads for Coraline movie looked good. Not sure I ever read the book.
* Japanese students studying Martin Luther King
* Nice to see an anti-war conservative who disliked Bush.
* "Like a plague of boils, the race of man covered the Earth" (Name that reference!)
* Medicine in the ancient world. Makes a point that the Church forbade the use of cadavers for scientific dissection, setting back medicine in Christendom for 1000 years. Thank god for the Muslims.
* LA vs. billboards. And... building wraps?
* Obama pushes for more openness in government. It's like we're supposed to have a government that serves us, rather than being a secretive power conspiracy. No doubt this is helping the terrorists somehow.
* The Village Voice did an article on Otherkin, way back in 2001. Relatedly, I note that RPG.net Tangency reactions seem less caustic and mocking than they were in 2004, part of the general mellowing of the site.
* Get your executive orders!
* What was wrong with Bush (via catsidhe) and a list of scandals. Even liberals might not agree with everything but it still makes a handy reference for the wingnuts accusing you of Bush Derangement Syndrome.
* White Wolf Forums are getting reset March 1, and all threads will be lost. If you've got links you like, save them now.

Your 'antiwar conservative' link goes to the Japanese students blog.

Dear gods, I've never seen any other aerial photo where people looked quite that much like ants.

Perhaps because it's a satellite photo with a very good camera. :)
