Un and Done: Goodbye, Unprintable Version

2008-12-03T15:09:10-08:00

A hey-world-I’m-Kevin-and-I-have-opinions model of blogging no longer makes much sense, at least for me, at least for now. After 885 posts and 1147 comments, I’m no longer adding to Unprintable Version. When I started this blog in April of 2005,...



Meme of Rivals

2008-11-30T06:10:08-08:00

I’m fascinated by Doris Kearns Goodwin’s study of Lincoln’s presidency, Team of Rivals. But since I am trying to write a novel, a part of me also wants to get back to reading fiction so that I have some models...



Singing Praises

2008-11-28T13:21:53-08:00

Subtraction 7.1: NPR: Brian Eno, “This I Believe” . I love Brian Eno. I am ambivalent about NPR (a little too elbow-patch smug). I don't sing, although I do sometimes sort of yelp.



What We Talk About When We Talk About Bipartisanship

2008-11-22T08:05:28-08:00

Obama has pledged to promote bipartisanship. But that may require a far deeper change than even he can promise. On MSNBC, Chris Matthews says something about helping the President. It’s a sweet thing to say. Of course, he’s lambasted by...



Sparking creativity: Calendar made of matches

2008-11-21T07:26:10-08:00

Calendar made of matches on the Behance Network. 1. This is incredibly cool. 2. In the US, there is always a moment when someone says, "can we mail this?" Creatives in the Ukraine are evidently less fettered.



Uneasy Reader: Thoughts On Poetry In General And Shana Youngdahl's Donner: A Passing In Particular

2008-11-09T21:11:03-08:00

I used to read poetry confidently. When I edited my college paper, back at Beloit, we put W.S. Merwin on the front page and ran a long interview with the even more obscure Laurence Lieberman. But more recently, I read...



Nina's, Election Day

2008-11-04T08:07:47-08:00

I voted. Since I've gone on about who I would be voting for, I should note that I voted for Norm Coleman. Otherwise, straight Democratic, including someone named Humphrey. On Rachel Maddow last night, Pawlenty noted that in recent decades...



NOTES OF A MODERATE: THREE VOTES (3 of 3)

2008-11-02T15:11:31-08:00

I put myself through this whole process to force myself to publicly articulate my reasons for voting. This leaves me with: Obama, enthusiastically. It has become clear that If you can’t run a campaign, you can’t run a country. McCain...



NOTES OF A MODERATE: FOUR CONSERVATIVE MYTHS (2 of 3)

2008-11-01T14:07:55-07:00

"After every Republican loss -- whatever the proximate cause -- it is worth recalling the words of Whittaker Chambers: "If the Republican Party cannot get some grip of the actual world we live in and from it generalize and actively...
