Perhaps You'll Now Wish I Posted Less: Sorry for the silencio; have been trying to pay the bills (you can always help me!). Ah, the freedom of being unencumbered by shame.... Anyways, have been doing much extremely random research – here's where you can get your information about Shroud of Turin Centers and Organizations, here's a company that organizes baseball-playing tours in Cuba (here's another!), here's that National Museum of Roller Skating you were looking for. Time has also been spent of late demonstrating to visiting young southern gentlemen Jackson Cooper and Henry Hanks how certain bars in East Bloggywood take a principled libertarian stand against California smoking laws. Speaking of L.A., I'd like to third Glenn Reynolds' nomination of Mickey Kaus to be the new editor of Slate; we can allay Layne's concern about losing a neighbor simply by moving Slate's entire editorial operation down to Los Angeles. The Microsoft boys should have a good handle on the code by now; time to move down to a real media capital.
On a more serious note (as if that would be hard), here's reader Brian Hoffman's reaction to that grotesque Milosevic apologia that the L.A. Times defiled its pages with yesterday:
Man, it's not enough that the LAT would publish anything by these David Irving manques, but also that editors would simply let the phrase "provocations and setups in Srebrenica to Racak" stand. I would LOVE to hear about the "provocations" in Srbrenica. On second thought, NO I FUCKING WOULDN'T. And I guess "Srbrenica to Racak" covers a lot of ground. Like Foca. Banja Luka. The shelling of Dubrovnik. And other things that never happened. Will the LAT accept my articles about the provocation of Auschwitz and the setup of Viengsai?Posted by at February 13, 2002 04:01 PM
One thing you left out when you mentioned the "petition": it was on the "International Action Center" website, the piece-of-shit parody-of-itself Ramsey Clark/International Socialist Organization mouthpiece, last seen doing its helpful work defending the poor oppressed of Afghanistan, the al-Qaeda and Taliban's "soldiers" (now here are some applicable scare quotes!) in Guantanamo. What a bunch of sick fucks.
