    • The Law of Equal Treatment
      Last Friday I wrote an article on the idea that if a society has a rule or duty, it must apply to everyone in the applicable situation, no matter who they are, even if it’s someone you love. It was interesting to me that most of the commenters disagreed. Perhaps this is my fault in choosing the famous example of a German general executing his own son for aba […]

Friday afternoon anti-cat blogging.

Cats, one gigantic eye reddening, bronchial tube constricting antigen wrapped up in a deceptively cute fur hand warmer. And now this:

  1. HarHarHar!!! I didn’t expect this at all!

  2. MEOW!

  3. I made an outdoor Christmas decoration out of a tomato cage and 2 strings of lights. Came out pretty good. I almost don’t want to take it outside.

    • That is a GREAT idea!!! I think we have one or two of those someplace (probably outside propping up a dead tomato plant)

      Would you mind if I steal the idea?

  4. For those of you who are interested, the musical entertainment for OWS is at 50th and Broadway.
    More information can be found at twitter stream @occupywallstNYC.
    There are rumors of someone with big balls showing up tomorrow at 2pm. I don’t know what that means. Lady Gaga? Dylan? CSNY? No idea but I plan to be there.

  5. Quote from Phillip Glass on the steps of Lincoln Center:

    “When righteousness withers away and evil rules the land, we come into being, age after age, and take visible shape, and move, a man among men, for the protection of good, thrusting back evil and setting virtue on her seat again.”

    Oh, that’s good.

    Send this one out to all your friends.

    Lather, rinse, repeat. This is the heart of the Occupy movement.

    • Golly, that one made me choke up. Or maybe it’s the vino.
      No, no, it’s Glass.
      Even myiq can’t be so hard hearted to not understand what this is all about now.
      I’ve never been so happy to live close to NYC.

    • Jeez, that’s simply beautiful!

  6. U.N. Envoy: U.S. Isn’t Protecting Occupy Protesters’ Rights

    WASHINGTON — The United Nations envoy for freedom of expression is drafting an official communication to the U.S. government demanding to know why federal officials are not protecting the rights of Occupy demonstrators whose protests are being disbanded — sometimes violently — by local authorities.

    Frank La Rue, who serves as the U.N. “special rapporteur” for the protection of free expression, told HuffPost in an interview that the crackdowns against Occupy protesters appear to be violating their human and constitutional rights.

    “I believe in city ordinances and I believe in maintaining urban order,” he said Thursday. “But on the other hand I also believe that the state — in this case the federal state — has an obligation to protect and promote human rights.”

    “If I were going to pit a city ordinance against human rights, I would always take human rights,

    Well, all righty then, condemnation from China should be forthcoming.

  7. (Totally off thread . . . ) TeresainPa, I just saw your question about scurrilous counter-Obama material on Crawdad Hole and was it untrue? I would have replied there but by the time I saw it the comments were closed.
    Untrue? I totally don’t know. It was certainly scurillous. I don’t remember when Crawdad Hole posted it but I remember what it was.
    It appears more like semi-plausible speculation than anything else. Here it is as found from memory by keywords. If it “could” be true, should it be weaponized? Is replacing Obama that important? (Link in reply because Microsoft Explorer chokes this blogfrastructure).
