Are you a fan?

I'm a big fan (although that may be an inappropriate word) of Kant's philosophy so I like to hear that his worksremain influential even today. This kind of article makes me want to go home and curl up with one of his books.

I'm not always a big fan of living in Colorado. We have rather too many narrow-minded bigots for my comfort.

I'm a big fan of NPR. Listening this morning, I had one of those "Pot, meet kettle" moments. NPR is doing a 3-part series on the religion of voodoo as it is practiced in parts of Africa and they interviewed some missionary (Christian, I need hardly add) who disdainfully dismissed it as "superstition." And I, of course, am thinking, hey, buddy, have you heard the one about glass houses?

He was also scornful of people who think their dead ancestors can affect their lives and I was wondering what the Mormons, who refuse to let you in their church unless you let them baptize all of your dead ancestors back a few hundred years, proving that they think your dead ancestors have an impact on your life, thought about that sort of thing. I'm not a fan of missionaries.

And, speaking of annoyed, I see that the Washington Post has instituted one of the more obnoxious registration programs I've seen recently. I'm not a fan.

Other than that, what's happening in the world o'blog?

Well, via Jerome I learned that OPEC is raising oil prices. They don't seem to want Bush re-elected.

Jeanne D'Orleans has a good rundown of the Bush-Platonic reality theory.

Looks like everyone has something interesting to talk about but me. I'm fresh out of bile ideas today. Guess I'll go do some work.
