A Flood of Stuff; Out of My Mind for 19 June 2009

I run this because I can and because I still think so little of Sarkozy.

Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. — Aldous Huxley

If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years. — Bertrand Russell

I’m not the person your mother warned you about… her imagination isn’t that good. — Amy Gorin

This looks like a really cool charity.

To me, this is funny.

You want your sexy back? Forget Carla Bruni, here’s the real deal.

We don’t have to eat this: spudburgers.

Obama’s radical health reform doesn’t have any public alternative. Reform looks more like a health insurer windfall act with a few goodies for the medical professionals. You know, rewarding and therefore encouraging bad behavior like TARP bailouts and credit card reform (latter only lacked the most important benefit, to wit, a cap on crushing interest rates). (More financial failure noted here. Obama’s latest failure is here.) Dunno who Obama’s leading with all his popularity but it sure aren’t the Dems in Congress.

Wow! If my wife was willing, this looks like one great way to get a job!

Who needs newspapers if they make readers do their work for them? (I joke; this is actually somewhat cool.)

Where not to live in the U.S.

Art in the street? (Click for the story of how a Duchamp got on the street.)
The rescue of Wall Street in historical perspective.

See memories form.

By God, Greenwald is right again: The columnist the WaPo fired was its best. Of course, the paper’s been running on hubris for the lat thirty years or so….

The innocents have no right from unlawful incarceration.

If this was Woodstock in ’69 though….
