What a mess!
Oliver Stone's Comandante; Thomas Cahill's Hinges of History; Rainer Maria Rilke's short story The Encounter; David Sanborn Scott's Smelling Land; Jocelyn Létourneau's Que veulent vraiment les Québécois?; Ayan Hirsi Ali's Infidel; Fareed Zakaria's Post-American World; Michael Ignatieff's The Lesser Evil; Chomsky's original essays on Deep Structure and Transformational Grammar; Cali Ressler and Jodi Thompson's Why Work Sucks and How To Fix It; Katie Kay and Claire Shipman's Womenomics; and James Workman's Heart of Dryness.
None are published as blogs. Just 'old media' hanging on for dear life. Mixed together, they illustrate how a deeper theme can emerge from jumbled thoughts, unrelated topics and an eclectic collection of authors.
That is the hope and potential of this blog ... that readers might eventually notice an emergent property of the whole that is less obvious from any single post.
Let me know once there are 25 or 30 rants to evaluate.
