Zero Degrees of Empathy

The review by Miriam Cosic of Zero Degrees of Empathy makes me want to go out and buy the book. Her final quote from British historian Ian Kershaw is striking:
The path to Auschwitz was paved with indifference.

Jeff Wall

I enjoyed the Jeff Wall exhibition at the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Took my son, Ben, along and he too was intrigued by the scale and composition of the photographs.

Forget Jesus

In A Universe from Nothing Lawrence Krauss writes:
So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.
Deep, meaningful, and amusing!

Love and the lonely astronaut

Reading the Australian's review of Love had me intrigued. Definitely will have to watch this soon, maybe on AppleTV.
