I hope you manage to rescue as much as possible. Possibly the saddest sight in the world is a floor covered with muddy, water-logged books and angry, damp kittens.Comment Posted By Tom the Pooklekufr On 25.08.2007 @ 11:32
Break a leg!
Or whatever writers receive instead of "good luck!"
You know, if you hadn't met your goal, I bet one of your rural readers would have been willing to pull out that Sledgehammer of Inspiration and provide you with a peaceful writing environment. I have one with Glenn Reynolds's name on it, just waiting for the day he walks by my house.Comment Posted By Tom the Pooklekufr On 9.06.2007 @ 23:03
I hate to nitpick, but you wrote:
"An attack at Virginia Tech University has killed at least 32 students including the gunman who apparently took his own life."
This sentence is either foolish or evil. Take a look at the verb. Then find its subject. Did the "attack" go on a kill-crazy rampage, or did a depraved English major named Cho do it? Did the "attack" kill Librescu as he protected his students, or did a desperate madman do it? Will survivors spend years trying to forget the look on the attack's face? If Cho hadn't killed himself, would the attack have gone to trial?
This sentence subtly takes the focus off the people involved by reifying an event and then past-tensing it into neutrality. Much like when we hear AP reports of "12 people were killed today when a suicide bomber exploded on a bus."Comment Posted By Tom the Pooklekufr On 20.04.2007 @ 03:37

Maybe Glenn used an anonymizer?Comment Posted By Tom the Pooklekufr On 25.07.2006 @ 18:53
Rick- go to the Wiki page and look at Page History. It'll tell you exactly when the page was updated and, if Glenn was "wise" enough to not sign into Wiki under his name, his IP NUMBER.
1. You don't see any familiar IP.
2. You see Glenn Greenwald's IP.
3. You see Glenn Greenwald's name in black and white.
I'll go check right now.Comment Posted By Tom the Pooklekufr On 25.07.2006 @ 18:47
Feh. Olmert is a chickenhawk.
