Speed Demon 1938 — A Shorpy jewel.

Absurd entries in the OED

The Civil War and the death of horizontalism — I've always know what 'horizontalism' was, but never realized it had a name. (You run into studying 16th-19th century American history.)

ginmar quoting a weird (and several years old) squib about Christianists and the environment...many fundamentalists see dying coral reefs, melting ice caps and other environmental destruction not as an urgent call to action, but as God’s will. Within the religious right worldview, the wreck of the Earth can be seen as Good News!

[personal] Not so bleh

I let it roll last night. Ten hours in the rack. That after an afternoon of mostly laying low. Still sinus-y this morning, and low-grade generalized ickiness.

Today I am hanging with the_child. We have some projects to pursue, and a family errand. Green tomorrow, for a Monday turn-in. Maybe a writer dinner tonight, if I haven't pooped out.

Laying low. Continued light blogging.
