the latest wave of muslim hysteria and violence has now spread to over twenty countries. the walls of our embassies and consulates have been breached, their precincts abandoned to triumphant mobs, and many people have been murdered—all in response to an unwatchable internet video titled “innocence of muslims.” whether over a film, a cartoon, a novel, a beauty pageant, or an inauspiciously named teddy bear, the coming eruption of pious rage is now as predictable as the dawn. this is already an old and boring story about old, boring, and deadly ideas. and i fear it will be with us for the rest of our lives.
i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...
still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!
my first post is here -- check it out!
as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.
for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.
