Peoples Geography — Reclaiming space

Creating people's geographies

Halliburton was here, and other visitors

Most webloggers are interested in at least casting a glance now and then at page stats relating to visitors – where they’re from, what web browsers they use, what referring URLs and search terms bring them to your site, and other notable statistics.

This is the regional location of you good people who visit this site, for example (changes daily):


Recently, a couple of visitors stood out by their conspicuous domains: Boeing and Halliburton. What page did the browser from Boeing visit? ’twas Ralph Nader’s article on The End of Habeas Corpus and the Belligerent Despot in Chief.

I was curious to see what the Halliburton reader (presumably a Halliburton employee) read. The page viewed was an article comparing George W. Bush to Nero: http://peoplesgeogra…/14/nero-not-hitler/

Cheney to admin assistant (snarl) … “What are people saying about us? They’re calling Bush Nero? What about me? I’ll give Chavez some more sulphur to sniff, I’m way more evil” … (snarl, snarl)

Excuse my being facetious. I’m trying to recover my sense of humour in the dark days of the waning neocon empire. The upshot of all this is the far more valued guests are you — thanks for dropping in and please do call in again anytime :)

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
