It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye.

I have the intention of attending the presidential inaugural parade on January 20, 2009 with a sign calling for the next president (whoever he is) to fulfill his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
It’s a very simple plan to engage in free speech relevant to the [...]
Sarah Palin speaks for women? A person might as well claim that George W. Bush speaks for men, and we know that isn’t so. [...]
Over last weekend, the discovery of the “Montauk Monster” on a beach near the Hamptons on Long Island created quite a stir.
