Here lies one whose name was writ in water.
Nick Searcy Wins the Internet with His Retweet
What can I say. I wish I had said it first. The perfect mockery of the most absurd problem of the week.
I can’t count how many times I’ve accidentally hit a woman in the testicles. https://t.co/1BRVOWfu1z

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” — that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
Guest Contributor – TomD – 25MAR2023 – Scientific American Goes Woke
Did a quick google (Laura Helmuth) and found she’s chief editor of Scientific American. That would be hard to believe if SA hadn’t been totally co-opted 20 or so years ago. I hate it too, I subscribed to SA for decades and absolutely devoured every issue. I remember the issue with the article on the Supernova of 1987 in the Great Crab Nebula. Whoever wrote it did a great job, it was exciting, mesmerizing, illuminating. Back then, the basis of the magazine was purely science
I watched politics and what is now called wokeism creep in. There was an editor change, don’t remember the names now, but that opened the gates. SA hired a new columnist (again don’t remember the name), who on his 2nd column, stated flatly that the verdict of history was now in and the political organizing system of the future was clear and that was socialism.
Oh, yeah? That was it for SA for me. Now you don’t know if any particular article is true or an outright lie intended to mislead you to believe in some woke bulls***t.
Matt Taibbi Chronicles the Ministry of Truth’s Exposure
Taibbi is a lefty who actually believes in the constitution. And by all appearances is an honest man. Such a rare bird.
In this essay he traces the origins of the information state and shows how Americans may have had enough of it.
But has it had enough of us? Taibbi may be a bit too optimistic about his lefty comrades and their willingness to let go of power.

Does Dwight Yoakam sing anything that isn’t sad, sad music? Well, maybe once in awhile.
25MAR2023 – Quote of the Day
The genius of poetry must work out its own salvation in a man; it cannot be matured by law and precept, but by sensation and watchfulness in itself.
