As Summer is winding down, I decided its high time for me to get back into the blogosphere! I never intended to be away for so long, but the beautiful weather (mostly) and bike trails called my name far too often to spend much time on the computer. Summer is for reading and Lake Therapy, […]

Pilot Season 1, Episode 1×79 Written By: Chris Carter | Directed By: Robert Mandel Original Air Date: 09/10/1993 | Re-Watch Review Date: 09/10/2013 I haven’t watched Pilot in more than 10 years, so expected to find a lot of things to annoy me. I was pleasantly surprised! #1) The plot is “meh”, especially in light of the […]
In honor of this year’s Easter holiday and (hopefully not coincidental) AMC’s The Walking Dead’s third season finale falling on the same day, I wanted to take this opportunity to explain why slow zombies are better than fast zombies. This may be my most important blog to date. Zombies represent many things to many people. […]
So, after the heaviness of my last couple of blog posts, I thought I’d revert back to a bit of frivolity just to prove how unfocused and random this site will be. It’s not all godlessness and “give me liberty or death” stuff! Last weekend, I finally got around to seeing The Hobbit. It just had gotten […]
Disclaimer: This is less a review as it is a totally biased compilation of my raw thoughts after seeing the film twice. I would recommend not reading this unless you’ve at least read the books or seen the film. I’m not going to explain plot points like a real review would. I’m assuming you know […]

PersephoneK writes about anything and everything that moves her, but usually she can be found skeptically discussing Liberty, Religion, Workplace/Government reform, Philosophy, and pop-culture. She loves passionate but civil debate, has thoughts, and wants to share. She also wants you to share back.
What is PersephoneK Reading?
So far, a fascinating look at how the U.S. Constitution has evolved, and how the interpretation of it has changed (for better and worse) from a Republican to a Democratic view (don't assume you know what he means by those terms, they are not about political parties) by a law professor Randy Barnett, who has argued cases before the Supreme Court of the United States.
Recommended Must Read
Economics is one of the most critically misunderstood disciplines in a democracy. Your ignorance is peril for us all. Sowell explains complex topics very simply.
If you care about Free Speech at all, this is an important read written from the perspective of someone at the center of a modern battle to uphold one of the most important principals of classical liberalism.
If you can only pick one book to read all year, pick this one. I rank it as one of the top 5 books all humans should read. It will be time consuming as its long and dense, but its also easy to read, and filled with gobs of nuanced facts and analysis to show how the world is better today than at any other time in history. Life is good, and Pinker has the proof.
