In the absence of anything amusing from me, read someone else. I've added Mick Hartley's 'Blog to the PooterGeek 'Blogroll, having inspected it at the recommendation of Backword Dave. You might want to wander over and enjoy the righteous kicking Mick gives Bianca Jagger today—no, not that Mick. I salute a man ready to lay down fifteen minutes of his life to read an article by a celebrity Leftie in the New Statesman. [UPDATE: Blimey, GSTQ is recommending the latest New Statesman too!]

One of Mick's earliest posts, an insightful observation about—rather than critique of—Chomsky's intellectual outlook, led me to this informative site, devoted to the factual (and sympathetic) fisking of that man's works.
