Around the blogosphere

  • Frog in a Well and Crooked Timber have a good discussion of Jared Diamond and his seminal work Guns, Germs, and Steel.
  • The Old Revolution has an interesting post on neo-McCarthyism in Pennsylvania universities. (Perhaps Zinn has it right when he claims that the ghost of McCarthy has always haunted this country.)
  • Long Sunday advocates reading Virginia Wolf (perhaps my favorite author) in order to understand the distraction of the modern mind.
