This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

What happened to that crazy girl Sinead O'Connor?
Eighteen years ago, Sinead O'Connor was famous for being pretty and bald headed and singing a song written by Prince. Then she went on Saturday Night Live, sang the song War by Bob Marley a cappella, then said we had to fight the real enemy and tore up a picture of the pope.
She was reviled. How was the pope the real enemy? She was dismissed as some sort of lunatic.
This is what she has to say today. She had a point then, she has a point now. Different pope, same hierarchy, same problem.
Not a lunatic, but a survivor of a nasty system that has still not seen the complete light of day.
I wish her Godspeed.
