Atlanta Streets Alive, West End
Atlanta Streets Alive was great today! Streets were closed to cars and open to human powered transport in the historic West End neighborhood, and the route included the Beltline path there. Also: goats. Definitely one of the best Streets Alive events, it drew a huge crowd.
My favorite part was seeing West Enders in front of their houses saying hi to visitors. Friendly place.

I’d pay a good amount of money for this (as long as it came with a copy of Chrono Trigger).

I just gasped quite loudly upon seeing this. nprplays:

Free Speech

Alt text from xkcd:

I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.

Amen.

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.

His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.

Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.

"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."
