Harold Pinter

Filed under: culture, history, politics — Tags: — codesmithy @ 9:19 am

Harold Pinter was a playwright and critic of United States foreign policy.  In 2005, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature.  Above is his acceptance speech.  Democracy Now! had excerpts on their December 30th show, but the whole speech is interesting in its own right (from outlining the process he used to write plays to giving a passionate defense of the Sandinista government).  

Pinter passed away Decemember 24th, 2008.

The Joys of Not Posting

Filed under: meta — codesmithy @ 9:07 am

I apologize for not posting more.  I tore the anterior cruciate ligament in my left knee a while ago, and subsequently had reconstruction surgery.  The surgery and the recovery threw my usual routine out of whack causing the lapse.  (The habit of not doing something is hard to break.)    

I have noticed the deleterious effects of not posting.  So, I am eager to get back in the habit.
