L. Cohen

This is one of my favorite Leonard Cohen songs, "Dane Me to the End of Love," and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it has a weird, Eraserhead-esque video to complement it.

Man, TV in the late Sixties must've been awesome -- Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and Leonard Cohen just showin' up, singing a song, like "The Stranger Song."

I have been reading this, which states the obvious: American hegemony is crazed, and based on a misreading of history.
Few leaders outside the United States, other than Tony Blair, consider the terrorist threat a global conspiracy of those "who hate freedom"—a puerile formulation—or think the existing militarized response to it a success. The positive results have been meager, and the negative consequences in relations with Muslim countries have been disastrous.
My classic favorite:
This visitor informed me Kurtz's proper sphere ought to have been politics 'on the popular side.' He had furry straight eyebrows, bristly hair cropped short, an eye-glass on a broad ribbon, and, becoming expansive, confessed his opinion that Kurtz really couldn't write a bit--'but heavens! how that man could talk. He electrified large meetings. He had faith--don't you see?--he had the faith. He could get himself to believe anything--anything. He would have been a splendid leader of an extreme party.' 'What party?' I asked. 'Any party,' answered the other. 'He was an--an--extremist.'
