Ellipses

The entire Harper's Index is now searchable online. (A sample, from 1991: "Number of Ph.D.'s hired last year to 'develop' carrot sticks for McDonald's: 45.") . . . An atheist explains what he's gotten from years of closely studying the Bible. . . . A recent poll asked for the greatest philosopher of the 20th century. The person running the poll was shocked and disappointed to find people from "all over Cyberspace" discovering it, rather than just strict philosophy nerds. Duh. . . . I think when the story of America's over-consumption is definitively written, this release, out today, will get its own chapter. One reviewer on Amazon, "Anthony," said that news of this DVD "made his year," because he grew up on the show. "I just hope its [sic] a [sic] good as I remember, as its [sic] been about 20 years." I have one word for Anthony.

Oh you did NOT just rip on My Two Dads, John Williams. Oh, no, you did NOT. What's next? You're gonna get all up in BJ and the Bear's grill, too? Tread carefully, John Williams. Tread carefully.

Surely watching "My Two Dads" on DVD qualifies as a good effort towards living the axiom "knowing history so we're not doomed to repeat it."
