Thinking in public about anything that matters.

Eclipse Riots

Eclipse to Cause ‘Psychological Discomfort’ A reminder, not that we need one, that cultural development is dramatically uneven around the globe, and that ignorance and superstition are not helpful cultural traits. Knowledge and science are much better ones.

Hillary VS Condi

Pandering to Blacks By Walter Williams. Interesting.

Hillary’s Plantation by Shelby Steele.

I believe I’d like to see a presidential contest between these two women. I’m sure that I’ve never seen any presidential race that would be as dramatic and meaningful a juxtaposition as this one would be.

Yes. I want to see it.

An Iranian Blogger

This time I salute an Iranian blogger, Azarmehr, living in London. He’s not a witty guy like The Sandmonkey, but he gets the job done.

Here is his front page:

Introduction: “For a democratic secular Iran. For peace and prosperity in the Middle East. This weblog was created to act as a platform for the voice of secular pro-democracy activists in and outside Iran who are struggling against the religious dictatorship of the Islamic clerics in Iran. My favourite quote: ‘Evil only prevails when the good stay silent.’ ”

A few of his articles that I recommend:

Going Back to the Repression of 80s?
Iran’s Communists Attack Sun & Lion Flags in Rally to Support Bus Drivers
Another Cartoon that the Clerics Didnt Like
Hamas Victory
Expansion of Havana-Tehran Ties

More Sandmonkey!

I am so enjoying the Rantings of a Sandmonkey blog, which I recommended in a recent post below.

Here is a hilarious post: The 7 rules of the A.P.U.! A.P.U. = Arab Parallel Universe.

Hilarious, even though woefully true.

No Clash of Civilizations

I stand in awe of the Arabs who publicly declare – straight in the face of an Arab/Muslim audience on Al-Jazeera TV – the kinds of things Arab-American psychologist Wafa Sultan has declared.

A Clash between the Mentality of the Middle Ages and That of the 21st Century

Jyllands-Posten does it again!

… Not to mention people like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Irshad Manji, Salman Rushdie, and nine others.

Jyllands-Posten, the Danish paper that published the 12 Mohammed cartoons, has now published, online, a manifesto signed by 12 courageous writers/journalists/intellectuals. (Hmmm… 12 and 12. Is that a coincidence?)

MANIFESTO: Together Facing the New Totalitarianism

Most of the signers are already under the death threat from Islamists and continue to demonstrate their courage for the sake of liberty.

I hope the major newspapers around the world emulate the guts and the backbone that Jyllands-Posten has displayed in supporting these people, and may J-P stand firm and strong and get heaps of support and customers!

Twelve cheers for Jyllands-Posten and the Manifesto signers!

And don’t forget… BUY DANISH! *8 : )
