Four years

This blog–I used to hate calling it that but such is life–is four years old today.  The parade of silliness which moved us to create it has, by my reckoning, not diminished.

  1. A four year anniversary here, right at the conclusion of the Olympics? Hmm…

    Based on your category list counts, I’ve tallied up the medal standings for the event of “sophistry, individual”:

    Winner of the bronze medal, representing the Inner, Inner Beltway, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charles Krauthammer.

    [applause from the right side of the arena]

    Winner of the silver medal, representing the freedom loving spirit of the Iraqi people, non-Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Brooks.


    …and winner of the gold medal in individual sophistry, representing everything everyone hates about the Big Apple, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, George Frederick Will.

    Ladies and gentlemen, please rise for the national anthem of the United States of America.
    (Mesdames et Messieurs, je vous prie de vous lever pour l’hymne national des États-Unis d’Amerique.)

    The is Bob Costas signing off. See you all in another 4 years.

  2. Holy Cow – after railing about the utter lack of logic in most political discourse, and leaving numerous citations to logical fallacy sites on the internet in a feeble attempt to educate someone – anyone, I found your site.

    After 4 years – where the duce have I been?  This is great – I’ve just begun to explore it. 

    I’m the guy who learned how to design integrated circuits in a Philosophy Course in College (Boolean?).  I feel like anyone who has not studied logic is living in the dark.

    so this is great!  Thanks for being here.
