Completely Reasonable

My good friend, Nick "Arkan" Meyers, has started a blog, "Completely Reasonable". His first post on Thomas Friedman is worth reading. It is as good an explanation of Friedman's tendency towards specious reasoning as you will see outside of a Matt Taibbi column.

For the record, I think the Friedman column raises a number of questions, notably: what is going on here? Google Earth? The Beijing Olympics? The Various [Proper Noun] "Factors"? Is he trying to title the next Robert Ludlum novel? Do any of these 'concepts' that he appears intent on linking have anything to do with one another?  Do they have anything to do with the Arab uprisings at all? Does the mustache now do the bulk of the thinking?
