Prussian Blue Redux

I had a post up about Prussian Blue back in July when Southern Poverty had them in The Intelligencer, and was amused about all the blog traffic about them after the ABC News Report. But most of what was out there was just screaming and shock rather than an actual analysis of what they mean culturally and as a manifestation of the far right. So, in the interest of being vaguely ironic, I choose not to ignore Dave Neiwert's post about when to ignore Prussian Blue.
"Thus it's incumbent on any reporter filing such stories to get the larger perspective: to explain, in this case, how musical acts play a role in white-supremacist recruitment (there was a brief stab at this), and to discuss whether recruitment like this is actually working (they really needed to talk to someone who monitors the numbers of people actually joining white-power movements). It might not have hurt to have shown the girls performing at an Aryan Congress, so viewers could see what their audience is."

Unless that's on a scale of 10,000, that's probably a good rating. Glad you liked it. I'm actually reading a sci fi book at the moment that you might enjoy - but it's hard to say because I'm only 1/7 of the way through the 700 pages. I'll let you know.

It certainly entertained me. I'm not sure if it's the greatest literature ever, but I enjoyed the premise and the characters. I was a bit disappointed with the ending, and I could have used more of the "On this day in history" moments, but overall it was very enjoyable.
