The "RAW Semantics Guy" posts his biography. He's Brian Dean, and he's done other interesting things. 

Herd immunity may be arriving early. 

My interview with Chris Frantz of Talking Heads. 

Republican who just won Congressional primary. I try to avoid politics here, but come on. 

How to be angry and anxious. 

How do I pursue a career in the music industry while avoiding the "Illuminati"? (All good, but one bit relevant to this blog: "I’d start by reading Masks of the Illuminati, by R. A. Wilson. It’s a relatively short novel, and will get you acquainted with the lay of the land, so to speak."

Why ‘drug guru’ and not ‘neuro-philosopher’ Leary?

Come on now Tom, "drug guru Timothy Leary". RAW was suitably pissed off at that description yet you regurgitate it in the Chris Frantz interview.

Perhaps it is a poor choice of wording but I am attempting to help general readers remember who Leary was.

I have changed the reference to Leary to "pop philosopher." I like "neuro-philosopher" but I think the average reader will not get it.
