Selma today

A beacon of the civil rights and racial equality movement, the Selma, Alabama of the 1960's sits in the American imagination as a place of empowerment, where the rising tide of social justice raised all boats anchored in its civic waters. The reality of Selma 50 years later tells us that tide has yet to turn.

A beacon for the civil rights movement 50 years ago, the Alabama city’s largely African American population today struggles with joblessness, poverty and drugs

Iceland's new personal best in the 'satiric protest' category

Using religion to protest religion is not particularly new or creative. Reviving a 4000-year extinct religion for the purpose however is a bit ambitious. Style points for using the most completely exogenous possible religion to your locale.

Yes, of course I want one

...however, given the $2K price tag, I will happily settle for the online version.

+D. Luria​ I meant per volume, though trade could drop to $13 per volume.

You get your 2k, but you also put out a set that every occultist is going to buy. And so on.

Paying the cost of protecting the public interest

The people who provided the hard data on the condition of Flint's water supply did so on their own time and out of pocket to forestall any claims of conflict of interest. The material costs for the project are around $150K, which does not include the cost of thousands of labor hours.

It would be lovely to see some of that cash come back to them for future projects. Please donate if you can, and let others know about good work being done by the Virginia Tech Foundation.

That's what she read

There is a certain common parochialism in the construction of most great books/must read lists. Esquire magazine was recently challenged on this very point -- here is their excellent response.

#ReadingLists
We invited eight female literary powerhouses, from Michiko Kakutani to Anna Holmes to Roxane Gay, to help us create an updated list of books everyone should read. Each participant made 10 picks. It's a new year, a new Esquire.com. We're looking forward to reading and we hope you are, too.

Introduction

Contents may become unsettled during shipping, political campaigns and whilst reading op-ed pages.  Product sold by weight, not volume. Volume does, in fact, go to 11. 

I care enormously more about what people do than what they believe.

Jorge Luis Borges wrote in the preface to The Book of Imaginary Beings --
"There is a kind of lazy pleasure in useless and out-of-the-way erudition"
I offer this here by way of explanation for most of what I post.
