"Your 'reality', sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever."

Antidisestablishmentarianism

A New York Times op-ed piece made the observation that

[n]o one wants to censor Fox's money machine [American Idol], but it does seem peculiar that a nation so torn apart over what message gay marriage or prayer in school will send to impressionable youth is so unified in giving a pass to a program that teaches young people that it's extremely cool to be mean.
Silly editor, that's because neocons don't want people to be nice to one another. Biblical literalists aren't interested in whether you're compassionate or honest. Holy rollers don't see the point in stopping violence, curbing abuses of power, or feeding the hungry. That's because it's about claiming souls for Jesus, whatever the hell that means. It's about one nation under the Christian God, it's about blind faith, and it's about antidisestablishmentarianism.

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
