Weekend Open Thread: Your Peripheral Vision is Mocking You

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

That which is seen out of the corner of your eye cannot be unseen out of the corner of your eye.  Seriously, try this — and welcome to Toon Town.

(I can’t get it to resize properly for our site, so if you want to see the original with a full two faces rather than 1.5, here’s the link.)

If you can get past that, enjoy your weekend open thread. Talk about that demonstration or anything else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of taste and decorum.

Ashley Judd

Has it occurred to you that there really is no way to illustrate a story about what you see out of your peripheral vision properly because the illustration won’t be seen with your peripheral vision? It finally occurred to me, so — after an annoying couple of days of Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, I’m happy to bring you the next (and first decent in a long time) Senator from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Ashley Judd!


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
