How (Real) Capitalism Works

A couple of interesting things here, relating to capitalism, and just how very far we’ve come in the last few hundred years. First off Deidre McClosky is in the process of explaining how we got so rich. From the Spectator, UK. Deirdre McCloskey has been at work for many years on a huge project: to […]

Researchers May Have Found North America’s Second Viking Site

We’ve likely all heard of L’Anse aux Meadows, Leif Erikson’s settlement on the tip of Newfoundland, back in about AD 1000, but have you heard of Point Rosee? It’s another apparently Viking settlement about south of L’Anse aux Meadows. This one also, like L’Anse aux Meadows, shows remains of iron working. Here’s more from Mental Floss: […]

OF MG, and Lotus, and Jaguar, and Chevy and Dodge

I don’t know how many of you became fans of Top Gear, the UK version, I never really got into the US version. The UK version could perhaps be best described as ‘quirky’. In truth, it was a good bit like a bunch of drunken teenagers playing with their dad’s quarter of a million dollar […]

Top Gear Gets Black Flagged

One of the rarest things on NEO today: a post on the entertainment industry. I don’t know if any of you watch Top Gear, UK but it has rather blown up. Essentially the Beeb has allowed political correctness to trump making money. And those that made it money (until they got fired) are talking to […]

Fire and Water: Händel with Care

Some of you know that I’m a music lover. I love almost all types, except the trash that owes more to visuals than the music. That means my cutoff is somewhere around 1980 with some exceptions. But my main love is classical music. And to put an even finer point on it, Baroque music, especially […]

Richard Littlejohn’s lost world

This is quite wonderful. I’m a bit less than a year older, and an American, still I recognize my life in this, almost from ‘A’ to ‘Zed’. Enjoy. On January 18, 1954, Bill Littlejohn found himself in the garage of his parents’ end-of-terrace house in Ilford, Essex. It was bitterly cold and he was painting […]

The Barbarism of Modern Islamist Terrorism

So, the bloody mist has settled somewhat in Kenya, although the atrocities continue, across Africa, the Near East, and Asia, as the thugs of a thuggish religion continue their rampage. Lenin of course said, The purpose of terrorism is to terrorize and so it is. The stories from Kenya are horrendous Warning: If you’ve a weak stomach […] . . . → Read More: The Barbarism of Modern Islamist Terrorism . . . → Read More: The Barbarism of Modern Islamist Terrorism

When Gun Control Satire Becomes British Reality

Back in my less sophisticated days (shocking as it may seem, I wasn’t always the mature, statesmanlike figure I am today), I sometimes resorted to silly arguments when debating gun control, such as, “does this mean you want to ban knives since they also can be used to kill people?” Smarter opponents would scoff and […] . . . → Read More: When Gun Control Satire Becomes British Reality . . . → Read More: When Gun Control Satire Becomes British Reality
