Jeff Jarvis has a podcast of the recent episode of Real Time with Bill Maher featuring Ward Churchill. Worth a listen for the sheer volume of America-hatred. Jarvis's commentary is appropriately and witheringly acerbic.
Thumos is a Greek word that we often translate as "spiritedness" or "passion." It implies a spirit of contention or fight, like having a beer with your buddy and loudly insisting that Dylan was cooler than the Beatles. This is an excuse for spirited posts that follow my more or (often) less disciplined passions.
