In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Dear Blowhards --

* We did it: Mencius is now blogging. Bookmark that sucka.

* You have a Mac? So why aren't you podcasting?

* Dani Rodrik wonders if the person who buys Fair Trade coffee is doing the world any good.

* Steve Bodio thinks that the anti-gun team ought to do a little more research.

* The history of architectural modernism in a very compact nutshell. (Link thanks to Arts and Letters Daily.)

* Girish volunteers a list of new and newish movieblogs.

* Cowtown Pattie rhapsodizes about one of her faves: the 1947 "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir." Jon Hastings thinks that Kurosawa's "Red Beard" may be one of the greats.

* I notice that MacWorld likes the writing program Scrivener as much as I do.

* DarkoV -- who writes like a soulful comic poet -- visits Cincinnati and raves about the city.

Kind words indeed, Michael. I appreciate the mention. I hope some of your readers who've gone to or live in Cincy add their own opinion or recommendations. I'm sure that with the clientele that come here, well-worded travel commentary is the norm.

Don't you just love Herrmann's contribution to the movies?

Thanks for the "howdy", Michael!
