Gary Farber only has two blogging modes: not at all, and 20 billion interesting posts a day, often so long that the post you read last time you checked the blog is off the page somewhere at the bottom now. He's back in mode 2, so check it out. This post on Oliver Cromwell's space exploration scheme is nice. And I bet you've been thinking, man, why won't someone on the interweb whose opinions I can trust carefully analyze the 1971 Kerry/O'Neill debate on the Dick Cavett show, so I can know what was up? Wait no more, friend. Cuz Gary Farber is that guy on the interweb.
