Authoritarian update

crossposted from Mimi & Eunice


I’m re-posting this cartoon today because the US Department of Homeland Security seized more than 70 web sites over the weekend (while sites like and techdirt were on vacation, and the mainstream media were devoted to stories about holiday shopping). Democrats: unless you stand up to stop this NOW, I am never voting for you again.

  1. Hi. this comment is not about your authoritarian post. It’s actually about Sita sings the blues. Let me introduce myself. I am an engineering graduate from India and I was introduced to this magnificent movie by my boyfriend. I couldn’t find a “contact me” on your website- so I figured I’d leave a comment here. Its a brilliant movie and the songs are beautiful. Its wonderfully made and I think its a beautiful interpretation. Ofcourse like you said its an interpretation and not THE Ramayana. If I were you I wouldn’t let anyone intimidate me with stupid threats. I’m Hindu too and I don’t find this offensive at all. If anything people should thank you for popularizing Indian culture. I LOVED the movie and want to thank you for such an amazing take on The Ramayana and relationships.
