My Flawed hero was Che Guevara...he made far better T shirts than Castro.

    Have you seen The Motorcycle Diaries? I haven't seen it yet, but it looks good.

    Whatever turns you on.

    After all is said and done, I'll be breaking out champagne and toasting Tony Blair's victory on May 5.

    Remember when all the beetle-headed brit boys around here told me they'd throw him out on his rear the first chance they got?

    May 5 is your chance.
     
  5. I'm heading out to get some Japanese food....and for those too lazy to click on that Slate link, it ends with a poem by a Cuban suffering under Castro.

    It's a good poem. That's why I boomarked the link. The article's good too, of course. And it tells the truth, something out of style on the far left.

    Search Order
    by Raúl Rivero

    What are these gentlemen looking for
    in my house?

    What is this officer doing
    reading the sheet of paper
    on which I've written
    the words "ambition," "lightness," and "brittle"?

    What hint of conspiracy
    speaks to him from the photo without a dedication
    of my father in a guayabera (black tie)
    in the fields of the National Capitol?

    How does he interpret my certificates of divorce?

    Where will his techniques of harassment lead him
    when he reads the ten-line poems
    and discovers the war wounds
    of my great-grandfather?

    Eight policemen
    are examining the texts and drawings of my daughters,
    and are infiltrating themselves into my emotional networks
    and want to know where little Andrea sleeps
    and what does her asthma have to do
    with my carpets.

    They want the code of a message from Zucu
    in the upper part
    of a cryptic text (here a light triumphal smile
    of the comrade):
    "Castles with music box. I won't let the boy
    hang out with the boogeyman. Jennie."

    A specialist in aporia came,
    a literary critic with the rank of interim corporal
    who examined at the point of a gun
    the hills of poetry books.

    Eight policemen
    in my house
    with a search order,
    a clean operation,
    a full victory
    for the vanguard of the proletariat
    who confiscated my Consul typewriter,
    one hundred forty-two blank pages
    and a sad and personal heap of papers
    —the most perishable of the perishable
    from this summer.

    Very interesting article.

    Thanks for posting it.

    I'm glad you read it. Nothing wrong with seeing the movie, but it's best to go in knowing other perspectives.

    Paul Berman is a good author. He wrote a book called Terror and Liberalism a couple years ago that's one of my favorite recent books. He's not bad for a lefty. Some have a clue.

    Now I must get my takeout....

    Yes, I am glad to have been able to read this before I see the movie.

    Yum, Japanese takeout!

    Tony will survive again.
    Have you seen the opposition?
    Anyway, his T shirts are pretty cool, so hey, who's complaining?

    That was not a serious statment by the way.
    Explanation for the American viewers, apart from Cod and Theo who are far too intellectual anyway, not to realise.

    How many

    Oooh yummy! I don't think there are any in Ohio though. It looks like a west coast chain.

    I never understood what the hell Pimp was on about with the Yoshi whatever thing!

    I got my takeout from Shuhei on Chagrin Blvd. in Beachwood. They've got great food! (I'm freaked out that all the stupid chain restaurants that moved in to the area with Legacy Village will put Shuhei out of business.)
