  5. Max von Sydow, RIP

    One of the great film actors who made a difference to the medium. His work with Ingmar Bergman was the extension of film into Nordic, and thereby European, culture. The fact that he never received an Oscar says a great deal about America. It is laughable that he was never deemed worthy of an...

  6. Clive Cussler, RIP

    Mr Cussler financed and planned underwater searches for historically significant wrecks. I was rather impressed by his success in that area. Definitely worth the effort.

  8. Rush Limbaugh Has Advanced Lung Cancer

    This almost causes one to consider the notion of Karma. So what do we do now, wish him the best? I recall back in my original iteration saying that the world was a better place after Jerry Falwell died. That got mixed reactions. What says ye. merry gentlemen and gentleladies?

  13. "It's All About The Oil" Explained

    Finally! Since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, I've read many articles that point to oil as the rational, though what had been missing in those articles has been any kind of comprehensive explanation of what that means, leaving me confused. Until now! In this piece by Michael Hudson...

  15. That bin lorry driver
