"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
~Benjamin Franklin

Hmph.

Thanks to Avedon Carol (who so totally needs comments), I find I'm being disagreed with which is cool by me, especially since I started it.

Still. I object to being disagreed with when someone is disagreeing with things I didn't say.

I say a lot of stupid things. If the studio audience would confine themselves to disagreeing with those things, this program will go much more smoothly and we can all get out of here at a decent hour. I'll have more to say about the whole thing later. Right now, I'm trying to get through my blogroll since my own morning's browsing of the news headlines didn't produce much in the way of intelligent comment about matters of importance.

For instance, for those interested in the James Yee case, the Army chaplain arrested for 'espionage', held without charges for a couple of months or more, and eventually charged with adultery and downloading porn, Jeanne is on top of it. (And, in answer to someone's question in this blog's comments, no Yee's 'partner' in adultery has not been charged. Also it seems that the adultery charge itself doesn't fit the criteria Bush's 2002 guidelines lay out for an official prosecution.)

And Kevin Drum found dumb Democrats, no question about it.

Comments

Oh, count me in as someone who also wishes Avedon had a comments section! She's one of about half a dozen people who don't and I wish did, because I always want to respond right away to stuff I find there and e-mail just doesn't seem to do it for me...

I know what you mean. What I want to say never seems to be significant enough to bother her with an e-mail but....
