". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Melanoma & Narcissist Personality Disorder

This concerns the mcPln duo.

If you felt anxious and fearful before, this round-up of articles and blogs by investigators and people who know at least one of them, will really scare you.

Go here, to the blog, Making Light. One of the two owners of it is also the forum comments moderator to BoingBoing. In most areas the two Making Light owners and their moderators and those that have topic choice power there, are level-headed and rational, and they Fact Check. They all come from different backgrounds too.

Wow! Wouldn't Daily Kos pick up on such a story?

Borders on the unthinkable.

It shouldn't be difficult to get this up at the Daily Kos. Vaquero's had stuff up there and could have a lot more, if he had the time to do it.

In any case, tell your friends and neighbors!
