NINETY-THIRD

A.  Concerning American Anglophilia, what can one say?  It's a remarkably silly phenomenon to behold.  It seems to consist of a misplaced desire for culture, bourgeois nostalgia for aristocratic manners, and a tendency toward unjustified snobbery.  

B.  For every natural k, a planar 3-regular graph can be drawn with 2k vertices.

C.  Dear proponents of "localism",  Do you know your neighbors?  I didn't think so.

  1. C. Now you're just being unfair. Those who know their neighbors have no need to be proponents of localism.

  2. This type of snark is witty sounding but empty. Plenty of people who know their neighbors support localism, even if most of them don't know what localism is.

  3. Town council drama here is leading me to believe that once people know their neighbors they just break into bitter factions. Before this, the town got along pretty well by pretending that everyone agreed with everyone else, but now that people's sympathies are out in the open? Hoo boy, it's time to break out the flame suits. Localism is serious business.

  4. Not that that's not better than the alternative, of course. It's immeasurably more entertaining, at the very least.

  5. It is difficult to measure how entertaining a thing is, isn't it.
