I love Turkey. I went to Turkey twice: the first time during a European backpacking trip in 2011, and the second time for my honeymoon in 2013.


The best response to the Charlie Hebdo killing is…

… Joe Sacco’s “On Satire”.

This is wisdom.

Look it up, I am not going to post it here.

In a related note:

In 2008, Siné’s article and cartoons in the magazine Charlie Hebdo relating to Jean Sarkozy’s marriage to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress, touched off a controversy, after journalist Claude Askolovitch described them as anti-Semitic. The magazine’s editor, Philippe Val, ordered Siné to write a letter of apology or face termination. The cartoonist said he would rather “cut his own balls off,” and was promptly fired.


The Possibility of Evil

21 October 2014

Shirley Jackson (1916-1965) wrote great short stories. The most famous of her short stories is The Lottery, a story about a bucolic American small town, with a very f-ed up ending.

Another one, which I have just discovered two days ago, is The Possibility of Evil.
