Well, we got our final Harry Potter books last night at midnight along with millions of other folks around the world. It is a depressing moment. The kid and I agreed we would read it out loud to each other at the beach this week when we go to Florida. After reading the first chapter to each other last night, I went to bed, and she stayed up all night reading. I don’t know yet if she finished the book; she’s still asleep, of course. But my guess is that Harry’s gonna die. The book opens with two very sad quotes about the necessity of
I am not the first to think that George W. Bush looks like a chimpanzee. Smirkingchimp.com raised that idea ages ago. As has Bushorchimp.com, which has been up since 2000.

If not backing the president is treason, shouldn’t all the people who tried to impeach President Clinton be behind bars by now? – Bill Maher
Gareth Kemerling’s Philosophy Page has a link to Donna Haraway. The Philosophy Page is an excellent resource. It is a dictionary of terms and philosophers plus a timeline of the development philosophical ideas. It is rich in both content and links. And it has pictures of a lot of the philosophers. Weird pictures. One of Althusser whose face is sagging like a Dali clock. And B.F. Skinner‘s hair! He looks like he’s on a roller coaster. Friedrich Schleiermacher is the scariest of all! I would not want to meet him in a dark alley. And Arthur Schopenhauer — Mein Gott! Either Kemerling has a bizarre
