Da Scent

This is my first real attempt at an on-line journal. It'll be parts political, parts personal, parts other. I'll try to keep it interesting, whatever I write. Feedback is appreciated...

UPDATE: Ok, I've taken a step to avoid spammers. So anyone can post comments again, you'll just have to do a word verification first. No big deal, just a minor pain in the ass, courtesy of the fucktards.

Aspiring novelist (hey, write, call or e-mail if you can hook me up with a literary agent...no hurries though, I've only just started).

Three Columns

I don't usually agree with Post columnist George Will, but every once in a while he pulls his head out of his ass and writes something reasonable. Usually, it's about baseball, but this is one of those rare instances where he is on point politically:

Also, we've got a good editorial from the Times, wondering why W is acting like a first-rate jackass while this country suffers from it's worst natural disaster in recent memory:

Finally, another Post column (by Dan Froomkin) which asks the questions that every American should be asking themselves right now:

Good stuff x3.

Speaking of good stuff, I'm reading a book right now called Freakonomics by Steves Levitt and Dubner...it's a non-partisan book, and it makes a lot of connections most people haven't...a very interesting look at the world in which we live.
