You're going to be hearing a lot about both. And by god you should. The self-satisfaction and self-delusion of our billionaires, including the bejeaned philosopher-kings of Silicon Valley, those through whose bucolic company-campuses the employees are encouraged to coast on roller-skates, must ...Read More...

Count all the ways Rami Khouri, Defender of the Faith (though it's a faith I don't believe he shares -- I think he's an example of that well-known phenomenon, the Arab islamochristian, who wraps himself in protective 'Uruba solidarity, and attempts to fit into a Muslim sea mainly by ...Read More...

Posted just today, the following employment ad from Brown University is the distilled expression of much that is wrong in university life. It used to be said tha tin a good poem not a word should  be changed (it's not true, but it points in the direction of a truth); in this announcement from ...Read More...

At least the division within Arab countries is now being noticed. But what is still verboten is the subject of rich, lightly-populated Arab sheikdoms, and the poverty of the Arabs -- and Muslims -- in Egypt, the rest of North Africa (excluding LIbya if it manages to start selling oil again), Yemen, ...Read More...

He has hundreds of millions, or perhaps billions. But he expects attractive Western girls (he's using the usual maquereaux at modelling and casting agencies), living in Europe, to take his herd of womenfolkin tow  (and, very likely,when the occasion warrants, to attend to his own needs, but ...Read More...

Here. With his ol'-Ez understanding of economics, his constant noisy shouting appearances everywhere (and dutifully carried on the Italian State Television, the RAI), Beppe Grillo continues in his vocation as unfunny comic.

Yet apparently the editors of The New York Review of Books think his banal views are worth the time of day -- perhaps he is, to them, if he helps subsidize them in some way.

You've all heard of ISIS, the maddest of mad-dog Muslims operating in Syria, whose members want to efface the border between Syria and Iraq, and impose Sharia straight up, undilated by time and custom and common sense and sanity.

Don't assume, ever, that an Arab Muslim "fighrter for women's rights" or for "liberal democracy" must necessarily have jettisoned the conspiracy-theories, with Jews ("Zionists") behind everything that goes wrong in Muslim lands, or in the whole world. They haven't ...Read More...
