NY Times: The Real War on Reality

A worthwhile read.

“The outsize role of private intelligence firms and their willingness to manufacture “truth” constitutes a sort of epistemic warfare.”

I’ve long suspected the paid message board trolls. Manufactured consent, indeed. One big takeaway I hope people get: this is a perfect example of why most conspiracy theories are bullshit. SOMEONE will always spill the beans.

Susan E. Wagner High School Performing Arts Program

These kids (and their teachers), at the Susan E. Wagner High School Performing Arts Program in Staten Island, give me hope for the future. They were absolutely amazing at Circle in the Square’s “Teens on Broadway” show, performing a long medley from IN THE HEIGHTS. It was a privilege to see them work. Their program should be a model for the nation on how to do the Arts right in a high school.

Don Barton, creator of cult classic ‘Zaat,’ dies at 83

Don Barton brought “Zaat” to life in the early 1970s, and while the movie about the giant radioactive walking catfish-human monster was quiet for decades, it never really went away.
