4/30/10 danger + opportunity ≠ crisis

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

The Chinese word for crisis doesn’t consist of the words “danger” and “opportunity.” Sorry to burst your bubble. A Professor of Chinese Language and Literature told me so. Those who are as pedantic as I will want to read more.

2/19/09 A’s Crosby no “comeback” candidate

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Despite Oakland A’s third baseman Eric Chavez’s attempt to support his teammate, “come back” and “have a great year” do NOT belong in the same sentence when it comes to Bobby Crosby. Other than hitting 22 homers in his Rookie of the Year season, Crosby has never put up numbers anything better than pedestrian. So […]

1/30/09 “Life without Bush” (Morford)

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I’ll take a sane president over an abundance of material for columnists any day. That said, I don’t want to read any more columnists complaining that they don’t have Dubya to kick around anymore. It strikes me that the basic message there is, “I’ve gotten used to being able to lazily phone it in, because […]

8/7/08 George Orwell, “Politics and the English Language,” 1946

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Apparently I’ve never posted a link to this essay by George Orwell. Now I’m rectifying that situation. Read it now. From George Orwell, “Politics and the English Language,” 1946: In our time it is broadly true that political writing is bad writing.

11/19/07 Oakland 4th-most perilous U.S. city?

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

According to CQ Press, a unit of Congressional Quarterly, Oakland is the 4th-most dangerous city in the United States. Though interesting, the rankings are somewhat controversial.
