" just that they've clearly got cool parties or something to attend this Saturday evening"

Actually, I was attempting to get the BBQ grill to not completely incinerate the teriyaki cashew chicken dish that I was working on. Now, the womenfolk of the house have gone off to listen to polyphonic 16th century Hungarian choir music, leaving me to catch up on Bab5, Season 4, or maybe one of the Kurosawa films I got for Christmas.

But by all means, open thread. :)

"Wingistanians?" er, is that me?

Edward, You've been a wonderful addition to ObWi. Keep up the good work. Looking for more good stuff on the environment.

BTW, if I was seeking one source that is sort of the environmentalist's equivalent of Lomborg's work? That is, lots of stats, a million checkable footnotes and addresses a bunch of the major current environmental issues?

Any recommendations for me?

B-5, Season 4?

I've been adding (slowly) to my collection and I've only completed Seasons 1 and 5 with about half of Seasons 2 and 3. For some reason there aren't too many copies of Season 4 out at any of the (gently) used book places I frequent.

Happy viewing.

I am not about to admit I am home surfing on a Saturday night. No way. You didn't see this.

Oh. Any copyright spies here? Cause, umm, I got everything on CD, including Wednesday's Angel. Many in the British satellite versions, Widescreen stereo. Yes, it's crazy( besides immoral), 250+ CD's didn't save me any money. But I was in a hurry.

I don't upload.

I went shopping for light fittings Saturday morning. Anyone know why, whatever the sexual orientation of the store owner, light fittings tend towards the high camp?

That's a tough one spc67. A few sites log the Bush record, but by even defining their site that way, they reveal a partisanship that overshadows their data. In the research I'm (hopefully) nearing the end of for my series (each new critic reveals another credible defender...it's hard to cut through it all), the best sources are not one particular site, but rather a before and after approach, meaning compare what a pro- or con- source said before with what they say after and parsing that for what seems to be the truth.

The CIE site strikes me as a good right-leaning source (although it's not limited to analysis on the environment, but when they make a statement they back it up handsomely...more on that later though) and the NDRC site as a (controversial, yes, but consider the reasons it is) good left-leaning site for general analysis.

Nothing I've seen takes on the data with the detail Lomborg has, which is why he's getting so much attention.

The overall problem with your request is that in the current climate anything considered "environmentalist" is also considered "anti-Bush"...even his defenders argue there's not much to defend, at least in terms of vision...the environmentalists have "vision" to spare.

ARRRG. I, Lord of all Intellectual Property, declare you a VILLIAN!

(Stage whisper: Can I borrow Wednesday's Angel?)

Spent last night watching a reasonably-good blues band. Struck again by how closely good blues follows a formula. (Well, all music follows a formula, but it's particularly apparent with blues.) It's comforting, in a weird way, to be able to guess the first and last notes before the next song's even played.

Thanks, Edward, BTW.

Stanford has in their wisdom acceded to the modest demands of The People and gracefully lost to the Huskies. The Selection Committee should be receiving their polite, if slightly ominous, letters from The People shortly.
