Thursday links


Antislavery activist Hans Christian Heg, who died in battle fighting the Confederacy.

PQ on "Reading the News Inside Finnegans Wake" 

Scott Armstrong deletes his blog, Slate Star Codex.  I like the New York Times -- I'm a paid subscriber, an effective form of fandom when newspapers need money -- but I hope the relevant editors and reporters change their minds about this. Here is Reason's coverage. Here is Scott Greenfield's take.  There's also an online petition.  (I signed.)

Protesters destroy statue of anti-slavery activist. Not an isolated incident, I see a lot of this stuff on Twitter.

Jim O'Shaughnessy (the RAW fan on Wall Street) makes a donation.

Reasons to cheer up.
