Oh, No!

As if I needed a real world reason to take the rest of the morning (at least) off from blogging, from the intersection of Homophobia Street & Latency Avenue:

And while the election proceedings have been heartening, euphoria is surely out of place. Elections don't by themselves guarantee constitutional government. I have just finished reviewing Philip Short's new biography of Pol Pot (review to appear in the NY Sun next week). The Cambodians had elections a-plenty, but they ended up with the Khmer Rouge just the same.

When I start nodding my head in agreement on a political matter with this guy...

Either the end times are here, or I need to do actual work.
