“It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.” Alice…in Wonderland
This month marks two remarkable anniversaries in American history, although remarkable for quite different reasons. The first (or second chronologically, but first in our hearts and minds) is the anniversary of the moon landing. On July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins were the first of the most elite group of humans: […]
Some of the most fascinating videos on the web come from Russian dash cams. Almost everyone in Russia has dash cams, and the reason is because of massive insurance fraud (from both consumer and insurance company) and lax and corrupt law enforcement. The idea of recording every moment of my life, or even just of […]
Get identity theft protection. Get it today.

I’m very busy, and very tired, and I kinda just want to do this. Alas, I do not have a box big enough for me to curl up in. Sigh. Links! A photo essay of children from around the world and their most prized possessions. What would be in your photograph? Reviews of math apps […]
The numbers are staggering. In 1970 one in 400 American adults was behind bars or on parole. As of 2008, the number was one in 100. Add in probation, and it’s one in 31. “More Democracy, More Incarceration” by Radley Balko Compulsion is a curious resource. It offers diminishing returns. It is diluted by dissent […]
