Idle words

The occasionally updated Idle Words blog is a rarity on the internet—well-written. A quote from today’s Hong Kong post:

“In some areas, our civilization had even regressed. In the 1980’s, the bad guys were a globe-spanning empire with a thermonuclear arsenal, undisputed chess superiority, great graphic design and a rather catchy worldview. Twenty years on, the global enemy had become a loose coalition of fundamentalist beardos whose most potent secret weapon was the airborne beverage. Cobra at its least competent was a better global adversary than al-Qaeda. “

I also recommend “Warsaw police hijinks” and “Argentina on two steaks a day.”
