There's a Theory of Communicative Action I WON'T Be Reading

Ever noticed that Habermas backwards spells HAMAS? I will be far too busy sipping on the quite frighteningly smooth & creamy The Yiddish Policeman's Union, by Michael Chabon, author of the unforgiveable Wonder Boys, to read any terrorist tracts. Well Chabon must have taken a dip in the clue end of the pool because The Yiddish Policeman's Union (hereafter "YPU") is just great!

I was just on Wick to ensure it was definitely "pron. SHAY-bon" & OMG the Coens will be filming it.

And no hare lip! Blizz.

Atta Grrl!

Important opinion piece by Posie Rider out today, along with an illustration by Catherine Redfern!

I haven't been able to think of any other dappy ideas for democracy, BTW! All my ideas have been really good and adopted by various visionary states this week. Cf. Finland's new constitution. Oh, but I did come across five post-democratic ideas from science fiction. "The Proper Study of Hivemind is Hivemind."
