Two Cents from Eno

New ideas are clumsy.

They are clumsy, awkward, and covered in blood. They need a little while to grow and they need to be protected while they're growing.

Chance favors the prepared observer. 'Lucky' means being ready in certain ways.

Sonny Sharrock. Thanks for reminding me Stephen Buono.

Here's a great article about the amazing Sonny. I saw him with the quartet Last Exit (Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Peter Brotzman) around 1990 at a tiny supper club in Somerville Massachusetts called Johnny D's. They melted my face off.

When Bad ideas happen to Good People

Here is an incredibly interesting interview and wonderful discussion on the consequences of belief between author/neuroscientist Sam Harris and Megan Phelps-Roper formerly of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg put it succinctly: "With or without (religion) you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things it takes religion."
