"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Where do ya go when ya gotta go?


I'm beginning to think some of this problem is perceiving all men as predators:

 “this opens the door to all kinds of issues with men deciding one day to be women and switching back the next day”
That's the indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton talking to FoxNews.*  Because, you know, that's what men do, just so they can get access to bathrooms, where people are coming in and going out all the time.  It's a perfect place for a sexual assault, right?  Because the only thing that keeps men from preying on women and children now, is how they identify with the sign on a door.

I'll retire to Bedlam.

*not surprisingly this ignorance is a feature, not a bug; and is central to their lawsuit, which I'm beginning to think doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell, even in the 5th Circuit.  And, as that article points out, there have been more criminal charges brought against Ken Paxton than against any transgendered person who tried to excuse their entry into a bathroom so they could commit assault.

My rule is that people get to change their names and genders once, after that I don't guarantee to remember them.

One of the lessons of this year, there is no bottom lower than which politicians on the make will not go. I used to think that was a phenomenon of the right, now we know it's not restricted to them.
