Benjamin Maurice Melançon the First, A.D.H.D. variously known as BMM Inc., the Maurice Institute Library, and the godfather of CATSUP, is quite possibly a figment of his own imagination.

North Natick Masala Dosa

Note: This recipe does need to be started at least the night before.

Loosely based on this barebones South Indian Masala Dosa recipe, what Shannon and I did to it turned out really well. Here is our version; naturally you don't have to follow every idiosyncrasy (based in part on what we had on hand) directly.

Many of the ingredients (such as urad dal, mustard seed, green chili peppers, and curry powder) were bought at Natick Indian Grocery Story.

May people no longer easily fear entire other groups while trusting our own power-mad elites

Juan Cole writes clearly what I have frequently said before— the right wing nutjobs with access to military weaponry in both the Israeli (primarily the government) and Palestinian populations consciously try to provoke a cycle of violence that keeps them in power (without having to provide anything that people actually want, like meaningful work and health care and in some cases food and stuff).

Israeli Government Destroying Lives In and Out of Gaza for Years to Come

To anyone who thinks that killing more and more people, and destroying more and more of people's homes and hospitals and businesses and infrastructure, is any kind of solution – short of total genocide – to rockets and occasional suicide bombing attacks, I have one question:

Have you ever been in a fight?

Even if the guy attacking you weighs over 200 pounds and you weigh 100 pounds, you are going to try to fight back.

Note that, on the other hand, you are much less likely to start or re-start any fight.

Top 3 Projects for the year

Another Drupaller found my name in the comments to the DoOcracy wiki page, probably following Angie Byron's listing of Drupal Community Philosophies.

Since our interests seemed to tend to run along the same lines, I outlined some of what I want to be working on that just happen to be key goals for 2009 also (that I should come up with an actual plan for doing...)

A truly happy new year

At Vafa's party, i got compliments on how i was dressed, which never happens, so I was confused – some combination of wearing suit pants, I guess, people assumed I was trying and they should say something, and a dress shirt, decently fitting blue sweater, and G's corduroy jacket.

My hair looked as good as it has long but it still could use, uh, styling or something.

Taxes on wealth for all, not just the middle class

my submission to http://change.gov open for questions (their round 2 which seems in part an attempt to keep questions about ending marijuana and other drug prohibition out of the top 5).

US-funded joint police-military ops attack Mexican students

Abuse of poor rural students advocating for better funding of teaching schools and widespread human rights violations in marginalized but organized neighborhoods mark Mexican government's so-called anti-drug operations. Meanwhile, violence associated with the illegalized drug trade also increases.

Visions Unite... with People Who Give a Damn?

Saw Slumdog Millionaire with the Forber-Pratts... very good

Very good movie (and very good company! I was the guest of Larry and Rosalind and Ian and Anjali and Henry, and I took Wendy's ticket– I saw her where we met up at California Pizza Kitchen.)

I was surprised to recognize words spoken by the main characters in the beginning, before realizing that though in India, as Muslims, they were speaking Arabic (which shares a lot of words with Hebrew... not that I know much Hebrew).
