Quote of the Day

"The fact that I expected it to be lousy doesn’t make it any less disappointing. So, all of that to find that the whole thing was a three-way mashup of The Matrix, No Logo, and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy?

Ugh." - Andrew Potter echoing my own thoughts on the final episode of BSG


Quote of the Day

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Bob Rogers

Personally I prefer the 'Prince of Nothing' series to LOTR, but otherwise the quote is spot-on.


Quote of the Day

"The problem with American foreign policy goes beyond George Bush. It includes a Washington establishment that has gotten comfortable with the exercise of American hegemony and treats compromise as treason and negotiations as appeasement. Other countries can have no legitimate interests of their own—Russian demands are by definition unacceptable. The only way to deal with countries is by issuing a series of maximalist demands. This is not foreign policy; it's imperial policy. And it isn't likely to work in today's world."
