How much dead wood could a dead woodchuck chuck?

Deleted a few moribund blogs from the Bloglist. Not all the moribundage, of course, for that would turn the bloglist into a sad and lonely place indeed.

Have finally added "Between the Hammer and the Anvil", from Flying Rodent, who is a scholar and a gentleman, or at least as close to these qualities as a Scotsman can reasonably be expected to reach. FR is not moribund, possibly more of a cummerbund.

What's that about the Anglo-American war machine in Syria?

there is no pile of rubble and corpses so high that it can't be mounted for use as a podium to issue stern lectures upon comparative morality.
Something something 'Dais ex Machina', said Keats.

My experience of engaging with the press this last few years has mainly been one of being told that e.g. insane destructive wars that achieve nothing are very, very sensible indeed, and that being annoyed about such things is dangerously crazy.

And they're bipartisan, you purity trools!
