RANDOM MUSINGS AND UPCOMING POSTS
Mrs. Zenpundit and I have a wedding to attend today for a colleague of mine so there will not be any further posting until Sunday. I did watch part of the debate last night and while I thought Bush improved his performance considerably he missed ( as did Kerry) opportunities to deliver some crushing rhetorical blows. Evidently they have either each been advised that such a bold move can backfire with swing vote undecideds or they are both not really very good at this sort of thing. Not like Clinton or Gingrich who were both very fast and eloquent on their feet or Reagan who was a master of well-timed line delivery. Still I give a an edge to Bush for improvement since appearance rather than substance matters at this point.
I'm working on a couple of posts that will be coming out soon. One will be a review of Dr. Barnett's " Deleted Scenes"
from PNM chapter 5 on System Perturbation; another will look at the supposedly deep wisdom of our bipartisan foreign policy elite before and after 9/11; the third will be a post on the Gap counterparts of the " Implicit Villains",
the valuable conceptual contribution to PNM theory by T.M. Lutas
Enjoy the weekend !
