Today I almost lost my very noodle reading blogs. People saying without any discussion of facts that Ronnie Reagan will be considered by history to be one of the "greats", people saying that "academics" cannot be trusted as their education insulates them in some unknown unstated but critical way from knowing things, people saying that the "liberals" are evil, people using "quotation marks" in every sentence to make their point somehow more pointy. It is so tedious - like listening to a cranked child after a car trip two hours too long. I have to stop reading the dumb ones. Yet we are all that: everyone is stupid in their own way. I guess what blogs do is introduce to entirely unexpected and new stupidities, stunnedicities, dishumouredosities which you would never encounter but for a blog. When will this cursed fad end?
On the upside, I bought one share of Google today. I own all your souls now.
