Noam Chomsky on Wealth Inequality

"It's OK as long as it's my wealth."

Well, I paraphrase. But Peter Schweizer at the National Post has the goods. (Via the Club For Growth Blog.)

Yet Another Good Movie Unmade

Via Galley Slaves, a pointer to a description of a Star Trek movie set during the era when Kirk and Spock went to Starfleet Academy.

Spoilers galore, but since this movie is off the front burner, also the back burner, and probably out of the kitchen entirely, you won't almost certainly won't spoil anything. Here's a line where McCoy is asked by starstruck cadets whether Kirk and Spock were friends at the Academy:

FRIENDS? I never met two less likely candidates for friendship in my entire life. That surprises you, doesn't it? Well, it's the gospel truth. They were as different as night and day. As Vulcan … and Iowa.
Sigh. I'd be there. I'd totally be there.

Link List Update

Don'tcha just hate bloggers who don't keep their blogrolls up to date? Me neither. Nevertheless, here are changes to the list over there on the right somewhere:

  • New URLs for Achenblog and Hoy Story.

  • Removed the Man Without Qualities, since he has unfortunately become the Man Without Posting Anything Since January 8. Too bad, I'll miss him. Someone let me know if he returns.

  • Added Mark Levin's blog, based at National Review.

  • Added Phi Beta Cons, a group blog covering higher education issues, also based at NR.

  • Added the infidel Treacher, because I was not getting enough drug-induced humor, 90% of which I don't even understand.

  • Added Carl Schaad's new blog. Now freed from the cold corporate shackles of the Accuweather site, Carl is finally able to freely engage in his own brand of humor. Like those dog whistles, the humor may only be detectable by those of Scandinavian descent.

  • Finally, added WitNit, because he's a Richard Mitchell fan. Good enough for me.
