In the same way (and I mean exactly the same way) that the shooting of Andy Warhol on June 3, 1968 was overshadowed by the shooting of Robert F. Kennedy 3 days later, the twentieth anniversary of me getting my arm broken at a hockey game in Philadelphia on May 12, 1985 is being overshadowed by the twentieth anniversary of the government of Philadelphia bombing the Move house and burning down a residential neighborhood on May 13, 1985.

I was chatting online with a dude about dweebs vs dorks (my work as cultural observer is never done) and eventually my magic fingers typed out dwork (my work as clutural obverser is never done).
Andrea Dworkin penetrated the earth a few weeks ago now. I read a Florence King defense of Ms. Dworkin once and ever since have meant to give A.D. a chance (I got one chance each for everybody on the planet). I can appreciate the literary skills of talented haters and invectivists (the tolerance that dare not speak its name), no matter the pretexts of their hatreds.
I've yet to give Andrea that chance, so I find myself unready to back Florence up, as much as I trust her and as much as I'd love to join her in her countercult . In the meantime I coin a word in Andrea's honor and in her image. Consider this the dictionary illustration for dwork.
STOCKHOLM (AFP) - Some 90 percent of murderers are mentally ill, a higher percentage than believed previously, according to a Swedish study.
For the study in the scientific magazine "Forskning och Framsteg" -- which has also been published by The American Journal of Psychiatry -- researchers examined the court psychiatry records and other medical evidence for 2,000 people found guilty of murder, attempted murder, manslaughter or attempted manslaughter between 1998 and 2001 in Sweden.
Oh, I do love Forskning och F., never miss an ish. It's always a highlight of the month when I peel back the cover of the latest copy. Yeah, that and Smegkma och Falssleg, another scando-science rag that is never far from reach.
BERLIN (Reuters) - A vast new Holocaust memorial that opens in the heart of Berlin on Tuesday after 17 years of fevered debate will be greeted by many Germans but may attract vandals, said the politician who is to unveil it.
"I believe it will be accepted by the younger generation, but surely not by everyone," Wolfgang Thierse, speaker of the Bundestag parliament, told German radio.
"There will be opposition, indifference, denial."
He was later formally to unveil the memorial, a haunting field of 2,711 gray gravestone-like slabs, at a ceremony attended by its American architect Peter Eisenman, leaders from Germany's Jewish community and a number of Holocaust survivors.
It sits between the Brandenburg Gate and the buried remains of Adolf Hitler's bunker, and after it is opened to the public on Thursday visitors can wander in freely at any time.
Opposition, indifference, denial? Sure there will be some of that, Wolfgang, plenty of room for the haters, too. But the lovers with their apposition, passion, and assent will find their special corners as well.
