Semantic Restructuring Discovering its shape, like Habermas.org. " Semantic Restructuring is the pursuit of enlightenment, enlivenment, empowerment through the creative re-arranging of the building blocks of meaning. For a better description, Start Here. A Robert Thomas ("beau") Hayes Link from Message No. 4791 on transform_dom. The Village Gate "(formerly The Right Christians): where religious progressives gather." I discovered this site by following a link on Judge Janice Rogers Brown. I'll post more on it soon. jeanne Crooked Timber A blog by academicians. Includes a student blog. Name from: "Out of the crooked timber of humanity no straight thing can ever be made." Immanuel Kant  .[Crooked timber is a g]roup current affairs blog which doesn't have an About page for reference but is varied and intelligent. One of the comments on John Peel's death quotes Auden:
As the poets have mournfully sung, Death takes the innocent young, The rolling-in-money, The screamingly-funny, And those who are very well hung.
The number of blogs linked to and a feature on a feature on the Technorati top blogs raises the question of how voices get lost or found in the throng? Shouldn't a successful blog be one of clear interests, whether by single or multiple author? Crooked Timber appears to be a sounding-off journal by academics. Or is it? And yet it is highly ranked by Technorati. What is unusual is the frequency of entries.
William H. Auden is one of my favorite poets and one of my heroes, so I couldn't resist quoting this. I'll locate the student blog. But Yahoo transform_dom is providing us with one. By the way, Auden was gay. Just in case someone wants to enter a discussion about the secular or religious prerogative to deny homosexuality. It's not about sex. It's about humanity. jeanne
