"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

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

Diplomacy is for loosers

Richard Grennel is the new U.S. Ambassador to Germany.  Apparently Twitter is now the preferred platform for U.S. diplomatic communiques.  Of course this is the diplomacy of the Ugly American.   And when it was noted this was a less than auspicious beginning, the new U.S. Ambassador to Germany said he was only following orders. On Twitter, of course.

Yeah, we may not survive this after all.
