What It Is

Filed in Everwhatever

Mary Mitchell, probably my favorite newspaper columnist, now has a blog at the Chicago Sun-Times. In today’s post, she asks readers to help her in identifying exactly what racism is. You would think that we would know by now, but in reality, I think that’s a very good question, because I don’t think we know [...]

Reading The Labels

Filed in Everwhatever

As most of you all reading this know, this is Stereo 3.0. Stereo 1, which I affectionately refer to as Solid State, was my spot at Blogger from a couple years ago. Stereo 2, or High Fidelity, was when my government was my domain name. (That joint’s still out there somewhere, and there’s a little [...]

Hate, multiplied.

Filed in Everwhatever

Cobb has an interesting post on the relationship between hate crimes and terrorism. By his descripiton, “terrorism is the coordination of hate crimes by conspiracy or syndication.” I like that. I like that a lot. I think it makes a lot of sense on its face, but it also helps me see the line of [...]

We Blew It

Random Notes

What’s a hate crime? Or rather, what’s the purpose for that specific designation? Is “goofy-looking white boy” enough of a pejorative to demonstrate some special animus over and above whatever animus is necessary to jump somebody and put him in the hospital? Well, we know that the answer to the third question is no. At [...]

Back. Caught You Lookin’ For The Same Thing

Filed in Everwhatever

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and I suppose that’s true, but in this case, I kinda had to get knocked off the pot to do something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. I think I first mentioned that I would be moving to illtelligent.com last September. Here it is [...]
