This post from May 5, 2000 may be the oldest evidence of my blogging. I am pretty sure that I started blogging in December 1999.

Marygrove College in Detroit, Michigan closed in December 2019. The library collection was donated to the Internet Archive, which digitized it and made it available online.

I am on the injured list! Pulled up with a serious charlie horse in my right calf during a walk yesterday. It feels better today, but slowly loosening up. First time this has happened to me.

“The founders were well aware of the dangers of populism, demagoguery, and faction. They built a constitutional order designed to force compromise and impede sociopathic behavior. But the institutions they put in place to act as gatekeepers (the Electoral College, the appointed Senate) became obsolete, and the successor gatekeepers (political bosses, smoke-filled rooms, big media) came to seem undemocratic and lost their grip. Today, the road to power for a sociopath or demagogue is comparatively unobstructed. As a result, the fail-safes designed to protect the system when the settings go out of alignment have themselves begun to fail.” (nationalaffairs.com, Rethinking Polarization)

”‘Extreme partisanship may be literally addictive,’ writes the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt. Partisans who find ways to rationalize their beliefs get a little hit of dopamine. ‘Like rats that cannot stop pressing a button, partisans may be simply unable to stop believing weird things.’” (nationalaffairs.com, Rethinking Polarization)
