why do people always die at Christmas? 

RIP Harold

When true silence falls we are left with echo but are nearer nakedness. One way of looking at speech is to say that it is a constant stratagem to cover nakedness.

More thoughts from Ostertag 

In the thread below, I linked to a post by the gay San Francisco activist Bob Ostertag, who is more or less against the gay marriage movement. He has published a follow up, which is better than the first post, and is worth reading carefully.

Regardless of whether you agree with him or not on the marriage issue, his chagrin at the trajectory of the gay liberation movement as a whole is important to understand, as it is direcdtly parallel to similar dissatisfactions of many with the trajectories of the black civil rights and feminist movements.

Identity politics without a counter-liberal universal narrative is liberal capitalism.

Ostertag also writes well about several other relates topics. He has lived an eventful and interesting life.

Something else worth noting -- with skepticism, but nonetheless worth noting. Warren is now trying to placate gays -- appearing at a gay-friendly thrift-shop in San Francisco (with his arms around "a gay"!), de-emphasizing the anti-gay language on his website, etc. Of course one can and should question his sincerity. But Robertson, Falwell, et al., never did this. Was this part of Obama's intention? I'm not saying that it justifies his invitation, but it is a fact worth noting.

Endgame in Zimbabwe 

Remember when we actually thought the United States might play a role in leading world action against monstrosities like this?
