Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

I just want to offer my condolences to Josh and Glenn. They have always been two of my favorites (I know it seems I say that about everyone, but really...)

Aside from the moral imagination element, I still fail to see why Paul should be treated any differently than say, Pat Buchanan.

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

The point I was trying to make, is that it seems to me that a weekly science roundup type program, wold work pretty well on cable. It would be a niche market, but I would think alot of NOVA viewers...

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

I'm not big on New Years resolutions, but some things I hope to see happen:
