This is the problem with the “Big Lie” tactic the right has effectively adopted in the era of the orange calf. Humans naturally want to understand why their leaders say what they say. As a result we find justifications and rationalize all sorts of illogical and immoral positions. This behavior effectively shifts the Read more

Afterthought: with comments only accessible on the last page and no “skip to the comments” button, it takes a billion clicks to get back to the conversation. It’s unwieldy after all.

I saw ‘em on the Time Machine tour, the one where they played Moving Pictures in order, in its entirety.

As a life long Rush fan, this is going to be crippling, and will take a while to process. But to tell a little story, I owe my dad’s life to Neil Peart.
