Best of July 2007

I recently bemoaned to my sons that I had not saved every satirical article that my uncle had sent to me over the years, thinking it was real. Here’s one.

A linguistics post, in which you learn the relationship between school and ecole in the post, and paste and pate in the comments.

The beautiful and ingenious color photos of Sergei Prokudin-Gorky, 1909-1915.

Was the CIA actively working to undermine the Bush Administration? And hey, what are they doing now?

I hadn’t realized that one of the functions of my "Best of” series is to trace the development of terri’s thought. Almost four years later, terri, where do you stand on these two related posts now?

No One Is Smart When They Don't Think

I think this was my first takedown of Bill McKibben, who is even more prominent now.

A link to Ben having an amazing conversation with a woman who watches the History Channel. Or so she says. Worrisome.

Early ABBA history, with information you can't get elsewhere.

So your uncle never caught on that he had sent you an article from The Onion?

I am painfully aware of how much I have changed.....and how my thinking has changed. It would take a book to explain it all. I have about 5 posts I want to do that touch on some of this, but I never get around to writing them because of the effort involved in writing about it.

Let me think about it and I'll try to post at my own blog rather than trying to fit my response in the comment box here.

That's fair. You have clearly been doing the hard work here, and I thought it was a good spot to catch up on current thinking.

I'm guessing I'm not the only one here that's interested.
