The Skeptic's Annotated Bible is really interesting. I has an exhaustive, cross-referenced catalogue of (close to) all the contradictions, insults to women, denounciations of homosexuality contained in the bible, and much more. A very handy resource for a discussion of homophobia (discussion starts towards the bottom).
Things are getting scary.
Another week, another Argosy. I wrote about free trade this week, echoing a lot of Chomsky... rather badly, I'm afraid. The ideas are good, but the article was written in a haze at 5am. I also interviewed Dr. Karen Houle, tree planter, poet, mother of twins, professor of political philosophy, and amazing person. Oh yeah, and I did the cover and the photo of the week, too.
End days of Analog is a beautiful comic.
This week's Argosy was pretty darned good.
I wrote two pieces this week; a mildly edited version of Rushdie's Rhetoric and Righteous Response, and Commerce Clarifications, in response to some feedback I recieved the week after the Culture and Capitalism piece ran.
If that's not enough, I spent all afternoon writing replies to the people who wrote op/eds in response to the same piece.
...and the cover, which was possibly the best one yet. There's a whole story there, which happened quite unintentionally.
Finally, this week's issue is available in pdf format, for anyone who wants to see the beautiful layout.
I wrote a short piece in response to Salman Rushdie, where I talk about terrorism, and how we help to perpetuate it.
Another issue of The Argosy. This week's editorial was "Culture and Capitalism; or: why I hate the commerce department. Not my finest work, could have been more polished, etc., but I think I got the point across. And maybe I pissed some people off enough to write some letters to the editor. I also did a photo essay this week, entitled Thin Film at the Edge of the Bubble: an exhortation to venture outside of Sackville before the air turns cold.
