To pre-empt a discussion of the new avatar: a post went somewhat viral and I changed the avatar to hide from scrutiny. I stand by everything I said in that post and am ready to proclaim it from the rooftops but I always fear militant idiots that spring up like mushrooms with every passing day.

Everybody is welcome to guess which post it is. A hint: it’s finally something mine and not guest-authored and it’s very serious. Which is rare because usually only the silly things catch on.

  3. I haven’t the faintest idea of which post went “somewhat viral” because none of them seem to have an unusual number of comments and I thought you stopped announcing your posts on Twitter. πŸ™‚

    Nice helmet by the way. I really like your visor. :p

      1. ” the new totalitarianism”

        I was hoping that it was the one about people not learning from the repeated catastrophic failures of socialism (everywhere it’s been tried) but I guess that’s too much to ask for…
