Language Used Here and There 

A few reads:

Tic toc, tic toc... Newsweek's "A Washington Sand Trap"

Billmon takes a look at The Porn of War as laid out in The Nation. A porn site segues into images of human destruction in Iraq: 101st Keyboarders can now whack off to human carnage. Writes Billmon (who thinks out loud in this posting, and tries to divine what is right and what is wrong with withdrawl from Iraq): It left me with the conviction -- or at least an intuitive suspicion -- that an open-ended war in Iraq (or in the broader Islamic world) will bring nothing but misery and death to them, and creeping (or galloping) authoritarianism to us. If he had doubt, it vanished in the horrors of the real.

Elton Beard edits David Gerlertner and his musings about a women's right to safe and legal abortions.

Crooks & Liars has the Viggo Mortensen/Charlie Rose interview. Viggo is currently an avatar of humanism in his quiet affirmation of both reason and heart. Rose has fallen into playing devil's advocate with a relish that reveals his increasingly brutish politics.

Chase a deer and end up everywhere!
