Accepting Your Rights

Bora, ever the source of useful links on deconstructing the mainstream media, pointed me to Jay Rosen and Glenn Greenwald on Bill Moyers’s Journal. There is lots of good stuff there about the inherent conservatism (not necessarily politically, but some of that too) of the Washington press corps, but it was something else that caught …

The January edition of the Carnival of Elitist Bastards is up at Ecstathy. It was up yesterday, but I was too busy reading all the posts and squeeing over the Lego pirates to tell anyone. Really. Go squee for yourself.

Everyone Should Interview Bora

I managed another first this morning. I’ve been hosting Atheists Talk for a couple of months now, but I just did my first interview this morning. I’ve been a little nervous about doing one, because I tend to think before I talk and dead air time is, well, dead. As it turns out, I don’t …
