Overheard at Berkeley in the Department of X

#1: "I was reading this book by some liberal humanist, and four pages into the book, what do you know, he starts talking shit about Foucault."

#2: "Are there still liberal humanists?"

#1: "Yah, we call them neo-cons now."

(Over)heard at Berkeley's Institute for X at lunchtime:

"A 15 kiloton nuclear explosion at 101 Market in San Francisco would only kill 100,000."

Or:

"In 10 to 15 years there'll be ethnic specific bio-weapons."

You guys missed out.

Haha - I'm afraid I can't do that, at least not on the record. But you can ask Phil maybe.
