Odds & Ends

My regular readers know that I'm not one of those "blog-every-day-no-matter-what" kinds of guys, but it occurs to me my new readers may not know that.

I blog when I have something unique, insightful, or important to say, and the best ones happen when all three of those converge.

So while you're waiting for that to happen, here are some odds and ends:

- Mollie Hemingway has written the finest essay I've read on the increasingly totalitarian regime under which we find ourselves. The new rule is apparently that if you think boys and girls go together in pairs, and that only that relationship should be State business, you're not allowed to be the CEO of a company. The Orwellian thing about this, as she so helpfully points out (with the help of Vaclav Havel), is that this is the opposite of diversity. Please read it and pass it along.

- On this week's Dead Reckoning, we'll be talking with Eric Teetsel of the Manhattan Declaration about Mozilla and this straight-jacket ideology.

- The skirmishes over the Noah movie continue. Yesterday I appeared as a guest on the Head Shrink, Inc. podcast. It was great fun, and you can listen to it here.

- Tonight at 6:30 EST I'll be live on In The Market with Janet Parshall of Moody Radio. Noah, again, will be our topic. I hope you'll tune in!


The audio from my interview with Janet Parshall is here. I'm on the second half of the hour so you can skip ahead if you like.
