I introduced my brother to Peter Sellers, and now he just can't get enough. He's been speaking to me variously as inspector clouseau (from the Pink Panther series) or as Mandrake (the Englishman in Dr. Strangelove) and now he tells me that he's managed to download the episode of the Muppets Show featuring Peter Sellers. what a find!

notice that i have been keeping my meanderings on political issues to a minimum. however, i did find Justin Podur's commentary on the chaos in Iraq pretty thought-provoking, so i'm giving you the link and not saying anything myself. He compares Fisk's analysis with that of Naomi Klein and argues that the latter has got it right when it comes to making sense of the recent spiral of violence in iraq.
