In a lousy mood, but I have one observation for the day before I give out and hit the sack:
Every half assed J. School dumbfuck who makes his or her living being objective has one or more friends who are gay. These idiots may be useless as analysts of anything, but they have a definition of normalcy that has little in common with that of fundamentalist Christianity. This isn't talked about much, but it's about to become impossible to ignore. The modern press corps is biased; and Bush fucked up.

I can't get this out of my head:
Ophelia Benson in the comments to the same post I linked to earlier.

Yes, it's very disconcerting. At least it disconcerted me, realizing and being forced to admit that moral judgments can't be grounded.

Sophistication is a wonderfully ambiguous word, meaning both, "the quality or character trait resulting from cultivation, experience or disillusionment" and, "falsification by way of sophistry; misleading by means of specious fallacies." I have to assume O. Benson thinks only in terms of the second definition.
