Hmm, didn't see a whole lot of 40-something people in that video.

That is fantastic. I miss that very last resolution, though! :-)

What would you ask a slave? This historical reenactor finally gets to answer questions the way she always wanted to at Mt. Vernon.

She could have just quit. It's not like anyone held a gun to her head and said, "You're a slave now."

Just finished it. Really enjoyed it. So many layers going on - the life of a modern immigrant, nostalgia vs. reality, trying to find love on the internet, trying to get over your own demons and meet people who are over their own, etc. Great stuff.

"No tricks were used"? Really? This guy is a magician - tricks were definitely used.

I am attracted and repelled...
The real estate listing for 3970 Spencer St. shows a foreclosed two-bedroom on a suburban street east of the Las Vegas Strip. That's nothing remarkable in Vegas, which has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, but this house is special: It's 25 feet unground. A high-end fallout shelter built in secret, it's a small monument to the Cold War--as well as the dream of post-War suburbia in the American west.

Nooo, I think sending them to Iraq would be just the thing-maybe someone could arrange a visit to Mosul.

Introduction
A delightful blend of chimpanzee and bonobo, with just a soupçon of neanderthal. I live in Denver with my superstar poet wife, +Kathryn, and our goofy black dog, Huxley.

Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson and
A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson.

A few of my favorite books: 

Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell
I Should Be Extremely Happy In Your Company - Brian Hall
Alan Mendelsohn, the Boy from Mars - D. Pinkwater
Libra - Don DeLillo
A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kennedy Toole
The Dispossessed - Ursula K. Le Guin
Was - Geoff Ryman
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - Mark Haddon

A few of my interests: 

The 1939 World's Fair
Fats Waller
Feminism
Fiction
The Environment
History 
The Evolution of Languages, of Humanity, and of Life Itself, 
Stereo Photography, Panoramas, Miniatures, Fakes, and other Visual Trickery 
The Coen Brothers
Abe Lincoln
Maps
Ending Slavery
and, in the words of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, "building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world."
Bragging rights
Was born with pretty much the best birth defect ever: No wisdom teeth. But I'd almost rather have gotten tetrachromatic vision. Oh well.
