The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Beacon Hill Calls Attention to Itself

For John, BLUFPoor General Hooker.  Known for ever for his camp followers.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This is a blog post by Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds, posted today, at InstaPundit.

Here it is:

Sign Referencing Civil War Hero Is Sexual Harassment, Says Massachusetts Lawmaker:  Rep. Michelle DuBois wants to remove a statehouse sign that reads “General Hooker Entrance” because it is an affront to “women’s dignity.”

But if there were such a test in Massachusetts, it would feature an IQ ceiling, not a floor.  .  .  .

Plus: “Of course, DuBois is positioning herself as a crusader against sex-based harassment and patriarchy.  But attitudes like hers—which treat women as excessively fragile beings, and which posit that female ‘dignity’ is diminished by even so slight an association with sex work as walking under a door that says ‘hooker’—just props up old-fashioned and patriarchal ideas about sex and gender.”

It would be easy to write an argument for restoring the patriarchy based solely on feminists’ statements about how weak, fragile, and stupid women are.

Surely State Rep DuBois was joking.  As a joke it works.
