About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

Jonah Goldberg, who has never seen a bad joke bandwagon he could resist jumping on with both feet, blogged, and I quote, “It would be pretty cool if Fox played to caricature and repeatedly referred to the hurricane as Katrina vanden Heuvel.” Not satisfied, he went on to imagine the headlines, “The destruction from Katrina vanden Heuvel is expected to be massive…The poor and disabled are particularly likely to suffer from the effects of Katrina vanden Heuvel.” …read on

      I confess, that one went right over my head. Never heard of her. Assuming she was real (and her name wasn’t some sort of bad pun) I looked her up on the Internet. Now I must learn what “The Nation” is all about.
