Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Sad Loss

Michael Hastings, whose 2010 Rolling Stone  interview with Gen. Stanley McChrystal landed the then commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan in hot water and cost the general his job, died in an automobile accident in Los Angeles early Tuesday morning.

Hastings, 33, penned two noteworthy books in his short life, including this one.

The writer's work made him many enemies in high places, so I expect an investigation of this accident to be in-depth.

You know, just to rule out assassination.
