Thursday links

Things the entire world understands, except America. The dissent in the comments from Facecat also is interesting.

Timothy Leary wanted poster.

From Julian Sanchez: "Inner peace meditation: ~15% of every ideology or subculture, including yours, embodies all the shittiest stereotypes about that group. Accepting this, and feeling no obligation to defend those people or take vicarious umbrage on their behalf, will make you much saner."

Thanks for the link to the Chandler LA map. I have only read one of his books, but Bob Wilson loved them. He said living in Dublin seemed like living in a James Joyce theme park and living in LA seemed like living in a Raymond Chandler theme park.

The great bassist Charlie Haden also loved Chandler. Also, Chandler went to Dulwich College, as did P. G. Wodehouse and David Thomson.
