SoMA Review - Hunter S. ThompsonRoad Man for the Lords of Karma Hunter S. ThompsonRoad Man for the Lords of Karma Its been 10 days since the Good Doctor ended his life, and the tribute I intend to write will just have to wait till the shock (though not disbelief) that hes gone wears off. Meanwhile, Charlie Rose re-aired last night an appreciation of Thompsonclips from three interviews he gave at Roses round oak table. In a June 97 interview, Thompson described his vision of the Great Beyond. Rose broached the subject by asking Thompson how he thought the gods would judge him. Rose: All right. HST: Did I hide my candle under a bushel? Rose: Yes. HST: Probably. Rose: He says or she says, I gave you this talent. HST: Well, but you know, I'm on trial? Rose: No, you're trying to get in! HST: No, you don't. Rose: Who has the keys? HST: Well, I'll just tell you now, just between us. Rose: Okay. HST: I'm sure [crosstalk] Yeah. Rose: A what? Rose: Yeah? HST: And they come eventually to be judged or just, you know, assessed. And as a road man, I'm a cog in the wheel.

Probably Bad News - Everything Not Fit to Print As the media continues to proclaim the demise of print journalism, the timely blog Probably Bad News appropriately stokes the fire, providing headlines, clippings, freeze frames, etc., all demonstrating that The Daily Show exists for a reason: because, wow, sometimes journalists will write the craziest stupidest most unbelievably dummy dum-dum things. People saw these? What's up with Henry Earl? Henry is The Man So there's this guy named Henry Earl. He lives in Lexington, KY. I don't know much about him except that he goes by the name "James Brown", (which is cool in and of itself) and that he likes to get drunk. Well, Henry has earned something of a cult following (he's even been mentioned in Newsweek/MSNBC). Henry's Impressive Record Henry's become so popular that Drew, the guy who runs Fark, was asked by guys at Fayette County to stop linking directly to their offender database as the traffic was crashing their server. I just had to get some sense of the overall scale of Henry's recidivism. Automating it was clearly the only way. More Info About Henry Even though there are a few other, more "full-featured" web sites devoted to Henry, none had the capability to display real-time jail stats -- hence this page. Feel free to link to this page as much as you want. Oh, be sure to check out this animated GIF another Henry fan named Rich made. Donate to Henry But there's a problem.

Twenty years ago, writers wrote and readers read. Many who respond to something disagree with it. The result is there's a lot more disagreeing going on, especially measured by the word. If we're all going to be disagreeing more, we should be careful to do it well. DH0. This is the lowest form of disagreement, and probably also the most common. u r a fag!!!!!!!!!! But it's important to realize that more articulate name-calling has just as little weight. The author is a self-important dilettante. is really nothing more than a pretentious version of "u r a fag." DH1. An ad hominem attack is not quite as weak as mere name-calling. Of course he would say that. This wouldn't refute the author's argument, but it may at least be relevant to the case. Saying that an author lacks the authority to write about a topic is a variant of ad hominem—and a particularly useless sort, because good ideas often come from outsiders. DH2. DH3. DH4. DH5.

Futility Closet In 1554 Sir James Hales drowned himself. The coroner returned a verdict of felo de se, meaning that Sir James was guilty of the felony of self-murder. His estate was forfeited to the crown, which planned to award it to one Cyriac Petit. Sir James’ widow, Margaret, contested this. Margaret Hales’ counsel argued that one can’t be guilty of suicide while one is still living, practically by definition, so self-murder shouldn’t be classed as a felony: “He cannot be felo de se till the death is fully consummate, and the death precedes the felony and the forfeiture.” The court ruled for Petit, finding that Sir James had killed himself during his lifetime: “The forfeiture shall have relation to the time the original offence began which caused the death, and that was the throwing himself into the water, which was done in his lifetime and this act was felony. The case is remembered, and not charitably, in the churchyard scene in Hamlet: First Clown: Give me leave. Second Clown: But is this law?
