    Thank you Claire. The yellowface post made my day. New jobs are kicking my butt so not posting but love your blog.

    Thank you, DistOne. I hope your jobs are going okay.

    And RV, I had something like that same thought, but failed to write it out. 🙂

    Archaeology and Anthropology are frequently a case of “follow the garbage” in any case, neat to see such a precise application of that kind of analysis! Amerindian trade routes have been reconstructed based on isotope analysis and technique-mapping of knapped tools, but this is the most detailed and ancient use of documentary evidence that I’ve seen.

    “The solution proposed to protect U.S. power in this new “post-primacy” environment is, however, more of the same: more surveillance, more propaganda (“strategic manipulation of perceptions”) and more military expansionism.”

    Oh yeah. That’s juuuuuust what we need. Good (if depressing) link, Laird. Thanks.

    Man, that’s some “rifle.” Mind-boggling bit of tech foolery there.

    On that Facebook story, I have an idea. It’s really radical, so just bear with me, and try to open your mind to it. Here it is: perhaps you should not take nude pictures of yourself, and not let other people take nude pictures of you. Nah, never mind, that’s too extreme.

    LOL, Dr. Jim. What a wild-n-crazy notion!

    Once long ago (VHS days!), I allowed some quite daring images to be taken. But by damn, I made sure I had the only copy of that tape. Now? When digital makes every indiscretion unlimited and undying? Not a chance (not even if I were young and gorgeous and incautious). It boggles my mind that anyone old enough to use a phone camera doesn’t already understand the possible consequences.

    Dignity is a word that many young people should study. The meaning seems to be lost on many of them.

    Old enough? My SIL found my (then) 4-year-old grandson selecting a movie, having unlocked the “password protected” TV remote. Granted, given his heritage, my grandson is going to be a brilliant prodigy, but… Four?

    LOL, larryarnold, that kind of prodigy is going to be “interesting.” Don’t give him any books by Kevin Mitnick as he grows up.
