My new posting reveals why it is a mistake to pillory the "one percent" which includes doctors and dentists and small business owners.  This simplistic thumbnail is a trap!  Indeed, the problem of oligarchy is confined to a far smaller segment…. also I discuss an important podcast and book about the first phase of our (re-ignited) American Civil War… and much more!

Thomas Piketty isn’t a household name, although that may change with the English-language publication of his magnificent, sweeping meditation on inequality, Capital in the Twenty-First Century. This is a book that will change both the way we think about society and the way we do economics.

Look at all the pretty Galgos! Baas Galgo is the organization that rescued our dog, Alatriste. If you'd like to adopt a greyhound (or related hare-hunting sighthound breeds) from Spain, there are a number of groups in the US and elsewhere that work with groups in Spain to help get them to you--including The Sighthound Underground, a Virginia-based group that adopts within the US and Canada. http://www.sighthoundunderground.com/

This is my current profile. Please ignore the peeepe one as I am switching to this one. Things you will find here: dogs, chickens, amigurumi (crochet), and landscape pics. Occasional profanity. Probably some tech, science, liberalism, feminism, and atheism.
