Choosing and free will

We are all determinists even if we unaware of it. We do not expect the car to start by itself. We do not expect the grass to cut itself.

Tweets of Hate: The Crazy Right Twitters About the Assassination of Dr Tiller.

One side effect of Twitter is that the stupid, bigoted comments people used to make at the water cooler now get preserved for future employers to find using Google.



A small sample of the hatred expressed on Twitter after the assassination of Dr Tiller:



* Crap, I always forgot hashtags. I'm happy Tiller's dead. - Jennifer Waite, Selah, Washington
