Re: United States of America

LOL! I went away because my laptop ate my password and all... one of our wondrous admins worked some magic and fixed it. I have learned forever more to only sign on places with a web-based email address.

Re: What are you reading right now?

For pretension: Gödel, Escher, Bach. (Have been off & on with this one for 4 years now.) Been reading "Same Sex Unions in PreModern Europe", John Boswell, for about that long. It's actually fascinating, and footnoted up the wazoo (I'm a footnote whore, don't ask me why...), but it doe...

Saw "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" Friday at the little art-house theater at the local university. Very trippy.

"Worldviews: Crosscultural Explorations of Human Beliefs", Ninian Smart.

First thing is, they are very heavy on the lawyers, and they defend themselves to the full extent they can in court.


Most of them seem to *be* lawyers - at least a couple of the Phelp's offspring are, and some inlaws...nasty bunch.
