I was really hoping to get some writing done this week but circumstances have intervened. Between the movie, the company I'm trying to get off the ground, a hacking project that has me obsessed (elliptic curve cryptography if you really want to know), and a ton of miscellanea (end of year donations, family health issues, a piece of registered mail that the post office seems to have misplaced, yada yada yada) my time has been too fragmented to formulate coherent thoughts.
I am making progress on clearing out the backlog and I hope to be able to get back in the zone later today. In the meantime, go read this article on Ron Paul by Glenn Greenwald and the follow up. He's a much better writer than I am anyway.
