Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Not Watching The Oscars, But....

Steve McQueen did the best directorial job of 2014.  I loved Gravity.  Very good.  But what he did with 12 Years a Slave was the most impressive feat of storytelling I've seen in a long time.

My guess is that this means Gravity wins best picture.  Or maybe Dallas Buyer's Club eeks out the win, since the director wasn't nominated.

But I still think 12 Years a Slave wins the Oscar.

We now return you to your Ukrainian apocalypse.
