Peoples Geography — Reclaiming space

Creating people's geographies

Beyond Iraq and a Hard Place

Great comedic overview of the US and UK with excellent impersonations and mock-ups. This Channel 4 comedy production is historically accurate with a satirical edge. Writers Geoff Atkinson and Rory Bremner have hit the spot.

Thanks to Ed for the introduction to this series. The first episode is Between Iraq and a Hard Place and the third Beneath Iraq and a Hard Place. Highly recommended.

Episode 3: Beyond Iraq and a Hard Place (43 minutes)

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"
