This is where I’ll be sharing articles, blogs, and thoughts of interest that I’ve come across recently.
The philosopher-citizen by Charles Taylor
In our time, we can almost fear that the public intellectual is an endangered species. On the one hand, the role can be trivialized by the proliferation of collective petitions for fashionable causes which it is very easy to sign. On the other, in the making of policy the intellectual is often replaced by the expert, master of some narrow field, who is rarely asked to decide on the use to be made of his expertise. . .

I was looking over the ever-expanding list of poems ,filed under the green poetry tab in my G-mail in box, when I realized a pattern emerging. Stars. Most of these have something to do with stars, the cosmos, or at least some mention of them. Also, those very verses or stanzas end up as a status msg on g-talk. I think I’ll share them here; they might entice another web-lurker’s imagination, like they did mine.
