Daily Thoughts 11/24/2012

Ignatz being marched off by Officer Pupp for trying to throw a brick at Krazy Kat. Behind the newspaper, Krazy is reading, and describing aloud, the very same cartoon they're appearing in. "Ooy, he's saying something at you— Ooy, it sims to be something in werra roughish, and werra uncootish lengwidge." Published April 16, 1922

Daily Thoughts 11/24/2012

I watched a bit of The Passions: Philosophy and the Intelligence of Emotions today.  Each video segment is about half an hour long.   There are 24 segments.  The segments cover a single aspect about emotion: grief, fear, love, etc. 

I also read some more of On Politics V.2.  Right now, I am reading about the political background of the American revolution.  The writings draw heavily on the Roman writers Cicero and Seneca.  They also are influenced by John Locke and Algernon Sidney.  I like that it mentions in the book that Jefferson sold his library to congress to found the Library of Congress.

I relaxed a bit and watched some cartoons.  Today has been a pleasant day.
