A couple of posts I made over the weekend that I don't want you to miss!

How to Save the World, with a great video from Jeremy Rifkin and an essay by me about empathy and how we must exercise our empathy or lose our humanity. It's the most important thing I can write about.

Library Journal wrote a review of Transcendence - a very nice one!

Now back to grading.

My cynical response to exercising empathy was: Worst is the empathy for the wealthy, and those who are so empathic they have to do anything, no matter how destructive, to demand tax cuts for their civil maters.

Republican empathy: nonono.

Ha! Actually, though, if you can truly understand the wealthy, you wouldn't give them tax cuts. Empathy is not blind liberalism!

In this case, it's blind wingnut. Sigh -- it was just the first thing that popped into my head.

I actually have the capability to be empathic, but it messes with the way I function.
