Wednesday Highlights

G’day

  1. And the fossil record clearly shows all those mass die offs every time the globe warmed far hotter than it is now, which it has done many times … oops, what do you mean it doesn’t? Hmm. So, then what’s the point of the article?
  2. A “seems to have forgotten” moment that will likely never again be forgotten by at least one individual.
  3. Disagreeing with Aristotle (and I think the founders who I suspect agreed with Aristotle).
  4. Although I think the above post author would agree with this.
  5. So, do you agree? Was it illegal or  just unprincipled?
  6. Related to the above.
  7. Cool. (HT)
  8. And he’d be right.
  9. A certain running back, back in the news.
  10. Another person who envies the VA system.
  11. The press and a prophet.
  12. Stupid if true.
  13. Ditto.
  14. Obamacare and it’s implementation. Hypocrisy?

  1. Sheppard has updated his NewsBusters piece reporting that the original article was satire. Ironic that a column on a website devoted to exposing “liberal bias” so easily swallowed what is (to me) obvious satire because of its own conservative bias.

  2. Mr Howard,
    Uhm, my link (not edited) came with “stupid if true“, I’m not quite getting the point here. The NewsBusters article has been updated … and I offered that it was somewhat dubious to begin with, so I’m not clear on what you mean by “so easily swallowed” means.

    Perhaps it is a litmus test of your faith in the fringes of academia. Yours seems higher than most.

  3. Oh, woops. I didn’t mean to imply that *you* swallowed the article. My comment was intended to be a criticism of Sheppard, who posted it as “fact” then later had to update his column and cop to it being satire. Newsbusters is the site devoted to exposing liberal bias in the media.
