Today I’m being unashamedly cheerful about Obama; fuck the begrudgers.
Not-quite-relatedly, palmer1984, < lj user=”aldabra”> and others, have long been muttering about how nobody on the left has anything constructive to say about the economic crisis. I mostly agree – but perhaps the folks who’ve spent every mayday shouting about Precarity might have been barking up exactly the right tree, after all.
Meanwhile, I’m planning to spend the evening translating an article about things being untranslatable. With luck, the paradox will lead to a moment of zen enlightenment, rather than just hours of head-scratching and dictionary-flipping.
