Sounding on “The Social Disciplines”

In sounding on April 30, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Yeah, so….everyone has a ‘junk drawer,’ right? That place where you stick all those things you are, inexplicably, interested and fascinated by, but unable to describe succinctly?  The ‘social disciplines’ is my attempt to name that junk drawer for the purposes of this blog: stuff I’m interested in that is otherwise nebulously categorical.

Dr. King Said More Than “I Have A Dream”

Thank you, Racialicious, for this MLK Day gift.

Somehow this madness must cease. We must stop now. I speak as a child of God and brother to the suffering poor of Vietnam. I speak for those whose land is being laid waste, whose homes are being destroyed, whose culture is being subverted. I speak for the poor in America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home and death and corruption in Vietnam. I speak as a citizen of the world, for the world as it stands aghast at the path we have taken. I speak as an American to the leaders of my own nation. The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to stop it must be ours.

Running with Thai buffalos- 10 Nov 2008

A nice short piece about water buffalo racing in Thailand. This tradition exists in Cambodia as well, though I am not aware of any argument as to which way (if any) the historical dispersion went.
