Severed Heads and Sensibility

Good morning. Too many new items to count...

  • In Book Eight of Marcus Aurelius’s “Meditations,” we come across this line: “Have you ever seen a hand or a foot cut off, or a head sliced off, lying anywhere apart from the rest of the body?” The question has more relevance today than we're willing to admit. So does Aurelius's answer. Pierre's essay explores both. See "Severed Heads and Sensibility."
  • Target Iran: The Bush junta is going after Iran with the same guile and mix of propaganda and fabulism as it did going after Iraq. Yet again, the media are swallowing the farce whole. See "Iranian Gulf of Tonkin"
As always, more in the Daily Journal. Thanks for
