If ever there lived a personification of the worst aspects of our post-modern culture, it is genderqueer Professor of Physics, A.W Peet, who left NZ’s shores and now thankfully resides in Toronto. Apologies O Canada! (Though you probably deserve it.)

Notwithstanding my bitter disagreement with Amy Peikoff over her slavish support for Obleftivism, ARISIS and Bwook the Cwook, I was very impressed by Amy's acquittal of herself on Tucker Carlson Tonight today.
