  1. I always check All The Good Names... but I have just discovered this site - and I love it.

  2. Hear, hear. Well, you know what they say. They'll serve you anything you ask for at the Wulfshead, from an atomic cocktail with a strontium 90 Perrier chaser, to a bracing glass of medicinal absinthe with a parasol in it. I've seen people order drink so volatile they had to be served in depleted uranium cups, and alcohol so potent it was served by a miniature tap-dancing elephant—though admittedly, the night I saw that, I'd a few.

    I drop by, every now and then, in the late evening, though "late evening" is a relative term, depending on whom you ask (or the door from which one just so happens to enter). I'll order a Guinness (they say it's good for you - it's the water from the Liffey river, you know)—and a Buck's Fizz for Nausicaa, when she happens to be around. She thinks the orange juice makes it healthy ;-)

    1. When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave everyone wondering.

    2. I am partial to the Wulfshead's signature drink, actually.

      Though, I won't mind the occasional Buck's Fizz. Or a good solid Martini, especially the kind served in Lounge 12.

  3. George Orwell's Perpetual War - are we there, yet?

    That study by U-M researchers Michael T. Heaney and Fabio Rojas, which appeared last year, in the March 2011 issue of Mobilization: An International Journal: The Partisan Dynamics of Contention: Demobilization of the Antiwar Movement in the US, 2007-2009 is quite telling:

    Simply put, after Obama’s election as president, Democratic participation in antiwar activities plunged, falling from 37 percent in January 2009 to a low of 19 percent in November 2009.

    Drawing upon 5,398 surveys of demonstrators at antiwar protests, interviews with movement leaders, and ethnographic observation, the study argues that the antiwar movement demobilized as Democrats, who had been motivated to participate by anti-Republican sentiments, withdrew from antiwar protests when the Democratic Party achieved electoral success, if not policy success in ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The withdrawal of Democratic activists changed the character of the antiwar movement by undermining broad coalitions in the movement and encouraging the formation of smaller, more radical coalitions. While the election of Barack Obama had been heralded as a victory for the antiwar movement, Obama’s election, in fact, thwarted the ability of the movement to achieve critical mass.
