The spread of Enlightenment ideals and the decline of terrorism

Islamic terror has been trending down for five years. Some American officials said this would never happen. America has failed to properly fight terrorism, said former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, so it “has spread, gaining countless new adherents.” Others said fundamentalism’s demand for religious obedience over individual freedom means “peace is not possible.” Muslims will never embrace Enlightenment ideals like individual freedom and separation of church and state. But Faisal Saeed Al Mutar, ...

"It would be nice if the wall-to-wall marathon showings of A Christmas Story on TBS and TNT led to a rediscovery of Jean Shepherd's other work..."

"... and even to a revival of the radio arts, but given that people have so many other things to occupy themselves nowadays, that it's unlikely."  Said Lurker21, in the comments to the Christmas Café. I've never seen "A Christmas Story," though I am one of Jean Shepherd's biggest fans. For years, in the 1960s, I used to get in bed in time to hear the "Call to Post" — which, today, sounds like something about blogging — on my radio tuned to WOR. And then...   Listening to those Jean...

Jerry Seinfeld shares 45 years of comedy bits in new book, ‘Is This Anything?’

By John Rogers Forget the high-performance sports cars, the luxury Rolls-Royces and all those other classic automobiles in which Jerry Seinfeld ushers his fellow comics to the diner on television’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” The most valuable things Seinfeld owns are the thousands of pieces of paper — yellow, scribbled over, sometimes crumpled — that for years he’s been cramming into those brown accordion folders that were once a staple of storage until something better came along calle...

"At the center of much of this creative coordination is Wisconsin’s Ben Wikler, chair of the state party Democrats, who was focused on comedy two decades ago, writing for the Onion and working for Al Franken..."

"... on his books and radio show, before rising in the political world. Now, his state party is the leading beneficiary of these fundraisers, raising more than $7 million since August, part of the $58.7 million it’s reportedly brought in over the past two years. David Mandel, former 'Veep' showrunner and 'Seinfeld' writer, says of the virtual format: 'I give credit to Ben Wikler for really weaponizing it.' Americans don’t particularly want to be politically lectured to by Hollywood, Mandel says....

How James Altucher's "New York is Dead Forever" essay goaded Seinfeld into unleashing ad hominem attacks

"There's an old saying about arguments: when you resort to ad hominem attacks, you've already lost." That's what Matt Tillotson wrote in his essay analyzing entrepreneur/gadfly James Altucher's blog post about the end of New York City and Jerry Seinfeld's weak, hypocritical rebuttal in the NY Times. From Tillotson: [Seinfeld wrote:] The last thing we need in the thick of so many challenges is some putz on LinkedIn wailing and whimpering, "Everyone's gone! I want 2019 back!"Then Seinfeld br...

Enlightenment Now!

Most of us watch politics in the United States with alarm. Falsehoods are routinely offered as if truth no longer matters. Genuine expertise is devalued in favour of unfounded opinion and conspiracy theory. Candidates espousing bizarre conspiracy theories have gained political traction. Calls for hatred and division have become normalized. Shame no longer seems to constrain. Canadian political culture has not descended to the same depths but there is reason for concern. On social media and elsew...

Jerry Seinfeld plays right into James Altucher’s hands

Jerry made a classic mistake! Although, he wrote one incredible op-ed! Anyway, I explained how Altucher is the best attention artist I’ve ever seen on this weekend’s podcast.

When will the Pope be weighing in?   ...The post Jerry Seinfeld plays right into James Altucher’s hands appeared first on The Reformed Broker.

"You say New York will not bounce back this time. You will not bounce back. In your enervated, pastel-filled new life in Florida."

"I hope you have a long, healthy run down there. I can’t think of a more fitting retribution for your fine article. This stupid virus will give up eventually. The same way you have. We’re going to keep going with New York City if that’s all right with you. And it will sure as hell be back. Because of all the real, tough New Yorkers who, unlike you, loved it and understood it, stayed and rebuilt it."Jerry Seinfeld — in "So You Think New York Is ‘Dead’" (NYT) — kicks the ass of that guy who wrote ...

Daniel Dae Kim is Fighting to Get Legendary Character Actor James Hong a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

James Hong is an all-time great Hollywood “that guy.” You might not know him by name, but you’ve definitely seen his work: he’s been in more movies and TV shows than just about anyone, including classics like Chinatown, Blade Runner, Seinfeld, Airplane!, Big Trouble in Little China, and many more.
