Merry Christmas everyone

To all my readers, Merry Christmas! No blogging for the next week or so, as I'm preparing for a visit from ol' Saint Nick.

I leave you with a link to Dr. Leonard Peikoff's editorial: Christmas Should Be More Commericial...

While grocery shopping yesterday, I passed by a pick-up truck in the parking lot with this bumper sticker:

Privatization Equals Corruption

Sometimes ya' just gotta feel sorry for people. Know what I mean?

Guy Gavriel Kay

Here’s a new author, added to my list of favorites. I get so much good feedback when I mention my favorite authors, I’m adding this Canadian to the “list”.
I am currently reading The Lions of Al-Rassan, a stand-alone novel of his. GGK specializes in ‘historical fantasy’. That is, he spends about six months a year, during a writing project, to immerse himself in a period and a region he wants to explore. This novel is based on Moorish Spain and one of the characters is modeled after El Cid. His characterization is splendid, the background is tantalizing and the storyline keeps you invested for the ride. I have not yet read his other works, but plan to do so during the year next year. Recommended.

Here is his "official" website.

Here is the historical background on the book Lions

Spiritual Crisis in America

From Dr. Michael Hurd's Daily Dose of Reason:

"The spiritual crisis is psychological in nature. It stems from the fact that people don't know The spiritual crisis in America today is not from a lack of religion, or a lack of government programs. The spiritual crisis is psychological in nature. It stems from the fact that people don't know why life on earth, and specifically in America, is, and should be, a great thing. Despite this spiritual crisis, much is still great in the Westernized world. Therein lies the hope."

I would argue that religion is one of the main causes of said 'crisis'. Our self/mind/soul is all we possess, but we are ceaselessly told to sacrifice all our wants/desires/thoughts and place faith in other's or place it in an alleged 'higher being'

Sister site

Okay. I'm trying out new blog sites and I've come across, an Aussie Objectivist's enterprise, that offers free blogs based on Word Press, which, I admit, I'm badly fumbling around with, trying to set up a decent blogsite.
Check out Fish Wrap @

Fishwrap ;-) was another name I was considering for my initial blog. After all, what are newspapers really good for nowadays? Hehehehe.
