"Pearls Before Breakfast" -- great article in WaPo

Joshua Bell is one of the world's greatest violinists. His instrument of choice is a multimillion-dollar Stradivarius. If he played it for spare change, incognito, outside a bustling Metro stop in Washington, would anyone notice? [/digg]
It's a long article, but well worth the read. Unfortunately, things don't look good for humanity. On the plus side, maybe no one will notice (or care) when we're gone.

Hey man!

I saw that article a day or two ago. It's crazy, but I think it doesn't really explain what's going on. A friend pointed me at a little work of literature called The Society of the Spectacle. It explains something that is a lot more alarming than global warming.

Check it out!
