Here, each hole starts on Wednesdays and this is what fell through this past week:
Last Wednesday, February 20, the Chronicle of Higher Education continued its coverage of James W. Wagner‘s saga. Wagner, the president of Emory University, a premier university in the South, tapped into the nation’s antebellum past to explain the importance of political compromises for some larger political goal. TPV noticed that this Wagner’s praised goal was keeping happy both the Southern slave owners and the rich white guys from the North, and the Wagnerian praised means was designating slaves as specially taxed cattle. Folks, if you hear anything about his Cosima’s reaction, assuming that one doesn’t become a university president without some Cosima, please let us know, because here at TPV we love opera of all kind.
Last Thursday, February 21, President Obama thanked President Carter‘s grandson for his involvement in making the Romney 47% rant public. That was James Carter IV’s first meeting with a sitting president.

On Saturday, February 23, skating classes were cancelled in Central Park.
On Sunday, February 24, while Seth MacFarlane made all the women here at TPV very happy — but not Jane Fonda –, on the old continent, a different woman, Marcela Iacub, made DSK less happy by calling him The Half-man-half-pig Superhero. Gege Depardieu will impersonate the former IMF head on the large screen.
On Monday, February 25, The Voice of Russia revealed that WikiLeaks published documents proving U.S. involvement in the attempts to overthrow Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in 2006 and 2010. The American means were recycled from the CIA 2000 arsenal to overthrow Slobodan Milosevic of Serbia: students and colors. Since then, both elements have become bleaker and disillusioned with the American way.
On Tuesday, February 26, the United States Supreme Court ruled that lawyers, journalists, and human rights activists lacked standing to challenge a law which increased the government’s ability to snoop and listen to international communications. As a child I became all too familiar with Soviet-style rationale of access to privacy so, this feels like home.
