Well, what did you think of the now-ended impeachment hearings? Were they …
Relevatory and persuasive?
Dull as ditchwater?
A waste of space in the universe?
As gripping as Watergate at its best?
Completely missing any impeachable offenses? (Except perhaps on the part of Joe Biden, who can’t be impeached because he’s not in office.)
The silliest bunch of cooked-up factoids you ever did hear?
Brilliant? Pure democracy in action?
Or did you think of them at all?
It was lovely to pay very little attention, although I did wonder if NPR was going to be “all impeachment, all the time, forever and ever.” I did more than the usual amount of switching the car radio on, then off again 10 seconds later.
What were your impressions, if any? Share with the world. Enlighten us. Take the opportunity to sing praises, cuss, or whatever else the hearings inspired you to do.
BoR book sale update
Four of the 10 available double-autographed copies of Basics of Resistance have been spoken for and three of those have been shipped.
Let me see here, if I use all my fingers … that leaves six copies. Get ’em while you can.
And don’t forget to include a shipping address (your own or a gift recipient’s) and the name you want your book(s) signed to (if any) in your email.
Six left — and that’s it forever, as far as signed copies go.
Anybody have some of my old articles stashed?
I went looking for two sets of old columns of mine, only to discover that a certain magazine had 86ed them. Or rather, 404ed them, this being the Internet. But in any case, they’re gone down the memory hole. So is a lot of other material, but right now I’m hoping to resurrect two series in particular:
- The first three parts of the 2011 series, “Responsibilities of a Resident of the Police State.” (Part IV is online at that link.)
- All four parts of the 2006 series, “Sustainable Freedom.” (Titles and original (dead) URLs at the link.)
I’ve checked The Wayback Machine and asked a friend who tends to keep these sorts of things, but no luck. If you’ve got copies you can share with me — or other ideas about where I can look — I’ll be eternally grateful.
I’d ask Oliver Del Signore, who was webmaster of that magazine back then. But I haven’t recovered my address book after last month’s system crash and although I thought I knew his addy, every version I’ve tried has resulted in returned mail.
