Sandefur’s Triumphant Return

I’m pleased to announce that Timothy Sandefur has returned to the blogging world after a few weeks away. Having moved in to a new home with his lovely fiance Erin, he is now free to ignore her and turn his attention to the far more important task of writing entertaining and enlightening posts for all…

Check Out Mixing Memory

Chris from Mixing Memory posted a comment on my post about Pinker and Summers, and it led me to check out his blog. I urge you to do the same. It doesn’t have much information about what Chris does, but I suspect it must have something to do with cognitive neuroscience or linguistics. Two recent…

Joe Carter in the New York Times

Joe Carter of Evangelical Outpost, ID proponent and pretty decent guy, is mentioned in a New York Times article on religion and the blogosphere. Joe, Joe, Joe…first you decided to move from a red state to a decidedly blue state and now you’re receiving notice in the flagship of the godless liberal media. I see…

Kuznicki on the Gay Double Bind

Jason shows once again why he is such an irreplaceably compelling voice in the blogosphere. I should link first to the Dave Jansing essay that Jason quotes from, making similar arguments about the need for a focus on virtue rather than values. Read that one first, then read this essay by Jason. Brilliant writing from…

New Blog on Free Speech in Academia

The terrific Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has finally started their own official blog, The Torch. The great thing about FIRE is that, unlike a lot of people who talk about liberty from both left and right, they actually take a consistent stand for freedom of thought regardless of the political viewpoint being…

Sanders on the Pope and Federalism

Steve Sanders has a couple of terrific posts up currently at Reason and Liberty. The first is about Pope John Paul II’s most recent statements calling gay marriage “evil”. You can hear sadness in his voice as he writes this, and I can understand why. Like Steve, I’ve always held the current Pope in fairly…

Rowe and Sandefur Links

As usual, these two have challenging and interesting posts up about issues I care deeply about. Rowe has this post about the Ten Commandments case and David Barton’s dishonest arguments about their influence on our founding. And Sandefur delivers this post examining the various meanings of “liberty”. Great stuff by both of them.

Come on, tell the truth. You all missed mynym, didn’t you? Well let me show you his latest bit of stupidity, wherein he takes me to task for opposing censorship by a public university while banning him from leaving comments here. It seem that our favorite little halfwit still doesn’t recognize the difference between a…

Kuznicki’s Inner Ethical Council

Jason Kuznicki reports on a recent meeting of the Inner Ethical Council in this absolutely brilliant bit of writing at Positive Liberty. I only find it mildly disconcerting that despite the fact that I have long claimed the mantle of cynic, I found myself agreeing mostly with the Epicurean avatar in his imagination. Does that…

The Two Percent Company has a wonderful rant comparing the relative lunacy of Alabama and Virginia. As they point out, Alabama has long held the title as the state with the looniest legislation, but Virginia is trying hard to take their title from them with some recent stupidity that I’ve mentioned here. Still, I’m not…
