"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Valentine's Day Movie Suggestions

Coincidence? I think not.

Today is the 75th Anniversary of the release of Dashiel Hammett's groundbreaking "hard-boiled" detective novel, The Maltese Falcon.

You humble correspondent just happens to own a copy of the classic John Huston movie, on DVD. Sold to him together with the other classic Valentine's Day movie: Casablanca.

So now there is no excuse not to enjoy both of them this evening.
