Re: Glen's Pose on BH.tv

I also felt it. I think it was Glenn’s "in your face" way of delivery.

Never-the-less, I am surprised by how many presidential middle names I can remember just by using my "mental Google". They...

Re: Year One

I tend to agree with you Wonderment. Nuclear weapons in this day and age are worse than useless. It is time to be rid of them entirely. It’s doable.

The hope for humanity is to utilize the...

Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

This seems to be a very apropos example. I can think of no group of people who would be more unlikely to consider themselves atheists than indigenous Americans. Were I to meet a surgeon of Cheyenne...

Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

Actually I am a Christian, and therefore have my own tribal baggage to carry around. Thanks anyway. :-)

Re: UN Plaza: Telecommunications for Emergencies

Although I haven’t listened to this one, I am a big fan of UN plaza, especially when it is a discussion between Matthew Lee and Mark Goldberg. It bothers me sometimes that this segment gets so few...

Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

As Ocean observed in her comment above, I was trying to give a common, albeit controversial, example of what I would identify as liberal tribalism.

As to why I pick on the phrase “Jewish...

Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

One of the most tribal epithets that I have ever heard/seen during my long life is the phrase “I am a Jewish atheist”. Jonathan Haidt, a liberal, has made this very statement about himself right...

Re: Science Saturday: Confronting the Right Wing

I agree with bkjazfan to some extent. Although I love to listen to John and George I do take umbrage at their incessant, sometimes vitriolic, hatred of religion. I can understand one being put off...

Re: Bob's comments monovlog

I can’t get the mono-vlog to play. Was it good?

Let me state for the record that reading the comments is the only reason that I really like to come to BHtv. I view the actual bloggingheads as...

Re: UN Plaza: The Nuclear Menace

Daryl Kimball’s description of the North Korea situation was not quite complete. The Clinton administration had agreed, rather stupidly, to provide North Korea with two light water reactors. This...

Re: Lost It With Glenn on This One

I think Glenn Loury made very good points when he was talking about the economic crisis. The last five minutes of this diavlog gives something to ponder. So far the economic crisis is playing out...

Re: Expert Failure

Great suggestion..., but Eric Alterman only comes to BH's when he has a new book to plug. He's into "free" enterprise as in free advertisement. I do like to listen to him though when he is gracious...

Re: UN Plaza: We Miss You, Kofi!

Sorry, I was venting, and after I read what I had posted I realized it was trash and tried to delete it before I was caught out. When it comes to non-proliferation issues I do get frustrated with...

Re: The Week in Blog: What Comes Around Goes Around

This discussion was great. Sara Robinson’s description of the role that America’s hubris has played in our economic collapse strikes me as right on the money.

After the collapse of the US dollar...

Re: Science Saturday: Shine On You Crazy Large Hadron Collider

Simon Willard’s analogy is spot on. The misuses of iron age technology and nuclear age technology differ only in magnitude. A steel blade can serve as either a scalpel or a dagger; the binding...

Re: Science Saturday: Shine On You Crazy Large Hadron Collider

I agree with you, well worth the watch!

Re: On TV's political coverage

Yes. I could never figure out what benefit he gets from that name that would outweigh the down side. I agree with you he is a savvy and interesting commentator and does a good interview.
