Why don't these "world leader" morons and their lackeys meet in some remote hunting lodge in Nunavut? Look - I've already googled it for them! If they don't like being around fellow citizens, this would be perfect. Up there they could even look out their windows and pass the time agonizing over receding Arctic ice, or whatever it is they do for fun.

The Crazed Author

From Roger Ebert's super-secret club newsletter:

The Pournelle Axes

In his Ph.D. dissertation these many years ago, Jerry Pournelle examined the traditional left-right political spectrum, found it wanting and even dangerous, and devised a two-dimensional grid, the Pournelle Axes, to replace it. To my surprise, I find that I'm about a 2.5/2.5, right next to what he calls the American counter-culture!

If you aren't reading his daybook, you should. I keep it in my browser's bookmarks and check it out every evening.
