It is a lovely morning, sun and blue skies. Yet, the morning starts rough. I am trying to play catch-up as we head into our last week of classes in the Master’s
program (it has been terrific, by the way!), and the first thing I see this morning is that Gore TV is up and running. AP says: "Much of the talk around
Al Gore’s new Current TV network has been broadly philosophical, like the former vice president’s statement that ’we want to be the television home page for the Internet generation.’" O.K., so it’s turning into a philosophical morning, you know, the relationship between between justice and equality, or between happiness and Hegels Befriedigung; this is the Bildung, for sure. Very deep, very impressive, very broadly philosophical, you know, kind of like inventing happiness and blinking. Surely this is an example of in die Tiefe steigen. Surely this is Gore’s spirit of revenge. Tough morning, this.
