Rolling Stone covers

I'm not saying they look alike or anything but doesn't this month's Rolling Stone Dylan cover pic have a mild similarity in feel to last month's cover shot? I dunno if there's an underlying theme or statement at play here (youthful innocence lost?) but I can't be the only person to think this...right?

Kant & me

The fact that I just bought this book at the Seminary Co-Op Bookstore while back on campus at the University of Chicago summarizes a lot about who I am and where I'm going..

On one hand it shows that I do have an interest for academic things that are a bit outside of normal readings. On the other hand the manner I have to brush up on Kant is completely against everything I learned: depending on secondary sources.

Moreover how can a 100 page skinny little book do any justice to the topic?!

Sure I have Kant's Critique on Reason at home, but that will just take too long to sort through. Bite size fortune cookie summaries for me please.
