We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A look back at Izzy Stone. New Criterion. He was not a "useful idiot:" he knew exactly what he was doing in defending Stalin. Stone was just another Lefto-fascist benefiting from American freedom while celebrating its absence elsewhere. Like the folks today who love Fidel...but do not move to Cuba.
CA library bans church from using their space, on separation grounds. Ninth Circuit (duh) upholds. Cramer begs to differ.

The Economist has a blog (h/t, Marginal Rev.) This blog competition is getting intense. How can the little guy survive, with day jobs? We demand government support now for our blogging lifestyle, or an entire way of life may disappear.
Some men (and women) whom the gods would destroy, they first raise high for all to see. These men (and women) have been so successful, have amassed such wealth, and have acquired so many playthings—the grand houses on Lily Pond Lane, Chateaux en Provence, estates in Scotland surrounded by rushing streams rich with trout, or vast glass and steel condos looking out over Central Park, that they yearn for things that wealth cannot buy. These are men (and women) like George Soros, Barbra Streisand, Steven Spielberg. Besotted with their wealth they forget that they are ordinary men (and women) with small gifts for entertaining or trading in markets. The gods first enchant them with dreams of changing the world and then cast them into the outer space of narcissistic illusion, where they are doomed to watch their own inner movies forever.
One fears that Clint Eastwood is heading in that direction. He has become so successful as an actor, director and producer of movies that he may have forgotten that the gift he was given was to be used simply to entertain us, like a juggler, or a trapeze artist who makes us breathless with fear and then takes a smiling, confident bow.
Now he wants to teach us something important, to tell us what is right and what is wrong about the world.

Buckhead Condominiums to be Sold at Auction
On November 14, the developers of the upscale, high rise residential building, The View @ Chastain will offer the remaining unsold inventory in an unusual, live auction event. Fifty-eight one and two bedroom units will be offered with fifteen selling absolute, regardless of price. The striking eleven story, 120 unit showplace was completed in the summer of 2005 and offers breathtaking views of downtown Atlanta and Buckhead skylines.
The View @ Chastain is a testament to the belief, determination and singularity of purpose shared by everyone involved in its conception and construction. This is an exceptional opportunity, as sales of brand new condominiums at absolute auction rarely happen in the heart of Buckhead. We are pleased to partner with the developers for this unprecedented close out.
The units, which range in size from 964 to 1,680 square feet, feature 12-foot ceilings, private balconies and top of the line appliances. Amenities include 24-hour concierge, glass enclosed gym, saunas, business center, controlled access underground parking and rooftop terrace, to name a few. Chastain Park is within walking distance and unlimited shopping is nearby. The allure of in-town living, with all its conveniences strikes a chord in many people. Urban sprawl and congested highways make this lifestyle more and more attractive.
Bidders will have their choice of seven floor plans and a variety of spectacular views, which vary with the floor level and orientation of the oversized windows.
The developers are CSJ Construction, LLC and Noble Properties, Inc., developers of the Lennox Square Mall, Atlanta Financial Center, Buckhead Sheraton, and Taylor Square Condominiums.
Photographs, floor plans and more information on The View @ Chastain are available at www.albertburney.com, or by calling Albert Burney at (800) 434-1654. The property is available for viewing November 4th, through November 14th from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The auction will take place at 6 p.m., November 14th at the Sheraton, Buckhead. Registration begins at 3 p.m.
