    I believe there is a Strauss tag

    Check out this post regards Strauss and Popper

    Last Sat night on Fox they mentioned how much George Sorros likes Popper. Fox mentioned Popper! What alternate universe did I wake up in?

    Anyway, I've got to go. I burned the living piss out of my hand today, and I'm going to take some industrial strength painkillers and bourbon.

    Oh props for the Myrna Loy reference!

      "An economist is someone who, if you have forgotten a telephone number, will estimate it for you."
      -Frank Morton

      love that quote, the kind that gets stuck in the old peabrain...

      Stop doing bad things to your hand! I can't stress that enough; hope you have a full recovery soon - & enjoy the bourbon & branchwater (my own comfort & refuge runs to champagne & Italian ice cream ...*sigh, french birds are pretty high maintenance)

      Thank you so much for your encouragement! I really enjoy posting here but every now & then I get screamed at for 'pretenseness' ... that seems to be the word they're trying to spell. I'll try from now on, to not be early with my tenseness.

      One reason I hesitate to do any diaries ... I know the idiots will show up.

      I've posted lengthy comments on Leo Strauss before, Gyorgy Soros & Karl Popper too ... but the phil. diary of choice would be Isaiah Berlin. I can hear the echoing silence already ... which is a shame; he's such an entertaining writer, the kind who instructs painlessly & leaves you feeling delighted in life & smiling cheerfully at strangers.

      In the surprising range of his interests (opera, Russian poets, Vico) he's a match for the late Edward Said - the Jew & the Palestinian...
