I remember back in early 2001, reading with somewhat grim amusement the January 2001 article in The Onion "Our Long National Nightmare Of Peace And Prosperity Is Finally Over".

Here, (courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] mindstalk) is a link to an recently annotated version of this article, with links to what actually happened. The degree to which the original article is accurate is simultaneously funny and tragic. The Democratic party is far from perfect, but the Republican Party is crazy and dangerous.

Here's a rather well done quiz on pagan practice, that situates me at the midway point between Gardnerian Wicca, Ceremonial Magic, and Eclectic Wicca, and exceptionally far from Chaos Magic, all of which seems quite a reasonable definition of my own personal style of magical practice. I've been thinking a good bit about my personal spiritual practice of late, and realized that while I greatly value what I learned in my coven training, I only use relatively small amounts of it in my actual practice. What magic I actually do (which isn't all that much these days) consists of elements of Ceremonial Magic and Alexandrian Wicca added to the idiosyncratic personal practice I came up with years before I had anything resembling formal magical training. That initial practice largely has its origins in reading a few moderately well done books and playing around until I found something comfortable for me. Comfortable for me turns out to be (as the results suggest) mildly eclectic and heavily Apollonian (the later of which is perhaps not a shock to anyone who knows me at all well).
