I don't have anything substantial to write today, but I wanted to post a quick update. First off, in terms of health everything is good. Feeling completely recovered from the incident I mentioned in the last post.
Second, a webcam I ordered was supposed to arrive yesterday, but the package is late. Once it arrives, I plan on doing a couple test recordings for the video I want to make about Michael Mann's (in)famous Hockey Stick. Not sure if I"ll include video of myself, but I want to have the option. Also, I'm pretty sure I'll be breaking it up into several smaller videos. Feedback on the script I posted before consistently said it was too much information for one sitting.
Third, and finally, the defamation lawsuit Michael Mann filed against Mark Steyn and several others has had some interesting developments. In some good news, the lawsuit against Steyn's publisher, the National Review, has been dismissed. Steyn is still on the hook for now though, and he had to give a deposition for Mann's lawyers. The transcript of it has been posted online. You can find it here:
It is a doozy. Not in a good way, mind you. It is terrible. Mann's lawyers rae probably giddy over it. Steyn's behavior during the deposition was unprofessional, and his answers to questions often bordered on incoherent. He spent a great deal of time responding to questions by talking about things that had nothing to do with the questions, often in weird and confusing ways. Much of it was empty bloviating, but some of it was truly disturbing. Mark Steyn clearly has no idea what he's talking about.
