Apologies for the light posting lately. I’m not near a decent internet connection very often at the moment. This is probably a good thing for both of us. I've tried to make up with a glut of posts that have been in gestation for about ten days now.
Reading Shuggy on 'evidence-free commentary' about the current middle east situation Pootergeek on global warming in the light of my own previous post about Bourdieu, I think that anyone who pronounce confidently on either of these issues marks themselves out either as experts on the subjects in question, or as the witless victims of demagogic simplification.
The latter outnumber the former.
