Attention Deficit Blogging

"Star Wars" Goes To Hell doesn't sound too promising. If you can't say "fuck" on HBO, then the terrorists have won. (Occurs to me that the same things the religious right are complaining about on HBO, radical Islam would condemn us for, too.) Will Dowell argues, quite cogently and calmly, that the religous right's fascination with the Decalogue mirrors "the idea that religious values should affect, and indeed control politics, ... something that you hear quite often in the Islamic world." And nature is red in tooth and claw, yes, but it's also gray, flaky and very, very cold.
