Crazy busy, fallen way behind on my Doctor Who watching-n-blogging schedule. This was a fun one to come back to after a couple weeks away. Even calling it a minor classic may be a stretch but what it gets right, it really gets right.

What it gets wrong are, in no particular order: C.S.O., not having anything approaching respect for the Welsh, casual sexism, and more C.S.O.

In which I reveal how out of touch I am with the sci-fi mainstream, and find myself hoping my favorite show doesn't win a Hugo this year.
I keep up with Doctor Who, a few other shows, and Kim Stanley Robinson. Went to a con this year for the first time in decades, but am still largely insulated from the politics of sci-fi. If you'd asked me, cold, as late as yesterday, I'd have had no idea there was any controversy around the Hugo ...

Can you master anything with a year of expert training and practice? Maybe anything but the king of all sports ..
Rory Scott, a coach who has trained juniors who later played for England, watched Sam in a recent tournament. His verdict? "He is nowhere near the standard of the top under-11 player in the UK." Why did the project fail? One reason might be that Ben chose the wrong sport.

I was assigned Memory of Fire in a Latin American studies class as an undergrad in the early 90s. It opened my eyes to a mode of writing history I hadn't encountered before, and it turned history into something I wasn't just curious about, or wanted to know for knowing's sake -- it turned ...

I've had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Nugent and hearing him speak. I found him to be genuinely friendly and a compassionately rational advocate for ethical secularism. I've also watched the exchanges between himself and Mr. Myers, as well as with Mr. Myers' supporters when they were conducted openly. I'm in complete agreement with the position of Atheist Ireland and would encourage others to examine the entire situation and draw their own conclusions.
"Atheist Ireland publicly dissociates itself from the harmful and hateful rhetoric of PZ Myers" http://www.michaelnugent.com/2015/04/07/atheist-ireland-dissociates-from-pz-myers/ #atheism-secularism- feedly version #feedly

Wrong, +Morning Joe  Sure we can, and should. Just like we can and should judge talk show hosts who don't want us to judge florists and pizzerias that don't want to serve same-sex couples. The difference between people judging you, and other bigots, and bigots judging people who are LGBT, is really not that complicated. We're looking at a situation and saying: "Who is trying to harm or degrade someone here? Those trying to do harm should be accountable for the harm they do, and encourage others to do, to others." You, Joe, and your fellow bigots, simply want to pretend you have the right to discriminate against people based on a defective, received moral system. And, you expect the rest of us to pretend you're still good people. That's messed up.

Questions of morality shouldn't be answered by a selective reading of some religious text or other, but instead should be analyzed as reducing to questions of promoting either human (and animal) happiness vs. suffering -- and should be answered as such. If your answer to , "Should we treat people fairly, as our equals, and equals under the law," is, "It's OK to harm people, and for the government to promote that behavior, because the Koran says so, or because the Bible says so," [which, BTW, does it?] then you need to take a look in the mirror and start by judging yourself before you counsel anyone about judging others.

Introduction
Blogging primarily about Doctor Who while I watch (and re-watch) the entire series. 

Sure, I could have chosen any number of other shows to bounce my interest in philosophy, history, progressive politics, secularism, and pop culture off; but, while others have burned brighter for periods of time, no other series has held my interest for so long. Nor is another likely to.

I've been a few times now and can heartily recommend the pulled pork and Aviator Monster (pulled pork, brisket, and bacon) sandwiches. The brisket in the sandwich was fine, not as jerky-like as the serving E.B. got in his/her April 1, 2011 review. Friendly service at the tables and at the bar. It was a little slow the first time, but that's to be expected in the first month of a new restaurant's operation. Has been quicker both times since that first visit. The baked beans have great flavor and the fries were very good. Will definitely keep going back for more.

The new library is being built around the corner and looks like it will be a beautiful facility. The existing library is desperately undersized but I mostly request books online and just run in to pick them up and drop off on my way to and from work. The library staff are always very friendly and helpful. It's a pain getting our double stroller through the front door, but I'm hoping that won't be an issue in the new building. All in all it's nice little small town library.
