Dear diary: stay at home. The posts on this blog may betray many flaws but I hope solipsism is not one of them, even if self-indulgence may well be. Here, I hope to help (in however small a way) propagate the broader circulation of news that does not get the attention it deserves; to offer up a miscellany of issues that interest yours truly, including in no particular order: civil liberties, the politics of the Korean peninsula and British Isles, genetic engineering, religion and rationality, the environment in any sense of that word, poetry that makes your brain sizzle and music that makes your ears sting.
Enjoy. Jamblichus. March 13th 2009.
