Thanks to everyone who's already been by to check out the new site, to everyone who's taken the time to engage with a comment or two, and to the folks out there in the blogosphere and elsewhere who've been kind enough to post links to The Termite.

I'm incomputercado for the next day and a half visiting my slightly-right-of-Stalin* mother and stepfather and resisting the temptation to duct tape them to the furniture. If it's your first visit, I humbly suggest you start here and work your way up.

See you soon.

The fundamental political ideology of Soviet totalitarianism is founded upon the writings of Karl Marx, where the State is considered to be the Genesis of all life, and thus its protector. Though a monster of a totalitarian dictator, the roots of Stalin's political theology come from a fundamental left wing Marxist economic and political revolution. To say that one is 'slightly right' of Stalin is to mix, er, up one's metaphors. All I'm saying is that if you're gonna duct-tape everybody who is 'slightly right of Stalin' - buddy - in a blue state, you're gonna need a boatload of duct-tape. I must sign off now, the guards are coming to make me shovel more snow...damn it's cold out here...

Politics isn't a straight-line continuum. It's a long, arcing curve that almost closes its circle. At political extremes, the curve approaches completion and the extremes are actually closer to each other than... oh, fuck it. You caught me. Touche.

How would "slightly right of Reed" work?
