Some Background

Glenn Greenwald looks at the attacks on freedom of the press and writes about People who don’t understand how America works. Tbogg, tboss of the tbasset hounds wonders about Abu Gonzo’s priorities.

For those who have never bothered to read history or to pay attention when it was a course, I thought I’d provide a little series of notes for them to look at when they have time. These are links to Wikipedia articles, but at the end of each there are links to more in depth articles.

Understanding these points helps to understand why the Constitution was written and what the basis was for the assumptions that the founders made in that document.

They Are Having Us On

Actual headline of the CNN article on King Charles’s the Shrubbery’s attack on Parliament Congress: Rumpus over FBI raid leads to talk of resignations.

The footnote on the bottom of page 73 of the Harper Collins hardcover of The Truth by Terry Pratchett:

“Words resemble fish in that some specialist ones can survive only in a kind of reef, where their curious shapes and usages are protected from the hurly-burly of the open sea. ‘Rumpus’ and ‘fracas’ are found only in certain newspapers (in much the same way that ‘beverages’ are found only in certain menus). They are never used in normal conversation.”

Welcome to Ankhmorpork.
