In the last week, I've done a bunch of posts. Among them, several small emotional responses to the Military Commissions Bill, such as here and here. And song lyrics from Bruce Springsteen.

And a rather garbled post about art and how we value what we see, and one about Random Acts of Kindness and Pokemon.

Can somebody explain to me how in the world I end up as the number one result when you google the phrase "Little Known American Heroes?" I just don't understand it.

Several new posts:

Quoting other people's words: John Steinbeck, by inference, on Katrina; Keith Olbermann on Donald Rumsfeld

A new look for my blog

On fear. I'm not particularly happy with this one, but I cannot identify why I am not happy with it.
I have responded to my "torture is acceptable" commenter with an entire new post called "Torture: once more with feeling."

[ profile] pecunium, I link to some of your comments in Making Light, about how torture does not work.

I've gotten my first "torture is acceptable" commenter! Whee!

I hope you don't mind, [ profile] pecunium, but I suggested they Google your name and "torture."

A new post is up in WWF about geeks and anarchy.

Hey, [ profile] si_anemome! You saw the SF production of Rent, right? I just wrote a review of it in WWF (even though it has already closed) and was wondering if your experience was similar to mine.

Here's what I've posted in the past week over at The Wild Winds of Fortune:

Why I hate SUVs (I talk about J's accident here, so if discussion of car crashes bothers you, you might want to avoid it)

Then the "I'm going offline" and "Um, no I'm not" posts, similar to what I did here.

Then a post about the most dangerous obscenities.

Looking at my location logs for Wild Winds of Fortune this morning, I see an entry from Eagle River, Alaska.

There are 18,000 people in Eagle River. One of them is my very conservative sister. She must have gotten a computer.

Next Christmas promises to be real interesting.

On the other hand, my other, even more conservative sister lives in a house surrounded by computers, and I'm sure she's read what I've written.

Actually, it's sort of exhilarating. It's hard "passing," politically speaking -- they knew I was to the left of them, but I don't think they had any idea how far. Now they do. Whee!
Four posts:

From last week, about saying we're sorry to the world.

From today:
Leiberman concedes in Connecticut
A Letter to Barbara Boxer
CAPTCHAs: How I hate em, and why they're necessary

[Edit: it occurs to me I never actually mentioned this post, either, I don't think, about the outcome of the Yates trial.]

New post at WWF, about death-qualified juries and the Yates case. I actually wrote most of it last week, but didn't get around to posting it. It's sort of old news, but I thought I would post it anyway.

Over the past few days, I've written a couple of things I sort of like on my writing blog.

One is about Travelin' Thru, the song by Dolly Parton; the other (which I wrote tonight) is about Little League.

Also, in case you're interested, there is an syndicated feed of my writing blog at [ profile] madameverdi_rss.

If you saw last night's closing ceremonies, and wondered what in the world Vancouver's mascot was supposed to represent... it's an inukshuk.
