- Doonesbury Comic Strip, June 17, 2012 on GoComics.com
- I just cried at an eight-frame comic (well, eight frames plus the previous x years).
- The Online Photographer: Set Those Expectations Low
- “Photography is a superb hobby, one of the best. It’s when you try to make a living at it that it is so likely to resist you. I don’t think other hobbies have this problem. I mean, consider, say, fly-fishing, or building plastic model planes. Very few people who do those things assume they’re going to ‘go pro’ someday. Very few people try. It doesn’t generally come up.”
- Republicans for Revolution by Mark Lilla | The New York Review of Books
- “People who know what kind of new world they want to create through revolution are trouble enough; those who only know what they want to destroy are a curse.” Also for the definitions of “liberal” and “conservative” half-way through, and the potted history of the origins of neoconservatism.
