Pelosi was defensive when she confessed this morning at AIPAC: When people sometimes say to me, the United States is so overwhelmingly partial to Israel in this discussion, I say Yes of course. We have been friends for a long time. We have shared values.' It was the one glimmer of dysfunction in the staged rounds of sacrifice, but it spoke volumes. Progressive Democrats are starting to see through the special relationship to Israel's human rights violations. In the Washington Post today , even Israel-devotee Richard Cohen wearied of combatting the apartheid label when he's forced to acknowledge there are Jewish only roads in the West Bank: while recoiling from the word apartheid,' [Israel has] adopted some of its techniques. How many people have noticed that PEN America (led by a Clintonite) is holding its annual world literary festival this spring without money from Israel, following a campaign against the sponsorship by leading writers? Two Democratic former congressmen said at a teach-in about AIPAC last week that politicians are overwhelmingly partial to Israel because of campaign contributions, but the support for Palestinians is slowly rising to 80.

The VCF East is the largest gathering of retrocomputing aficionados on the east coast. It's three days of talks, exhibits, a flea market, and a pow-wow of the greatest minds buried under obsolete technology. No VCF is complete without a few talks, and this year is shaping up to be great. Keynotes will include [Bjarne Stroustrup], designer / implementor / inventor of C++. Computer historian [Bill Degnan] will give a review of 40 years of appliance computers', and [Tom Perera], Ph.D. will be giving a talk on the Enigma machine.

The two best movies I saw at this years Sundance Film Festival were the gay coming-of-age romance Call Me by Your Name and the haunting spiritual poem A Ghost Story . See, its hard to talk about A Ghost Story without giving too much away. Haunting spiritual poem? What does that even mean? Just trust me. Thankfully, A24 premiered the trailer on Tuesday, so you can see for yourself before the movie hits theaters July 7. The latest from Petes Dragon and Aint Them Bodies Saints director David Lowery, A Ghost Story stars Rooney Mara as a Texan whose spectral husband (Casey Affleck) returns to their home after dying in a car crash. Yep, its a literal ghost story, but its hardly a horror movie. In fact, its bound to be one of the most original, captivating, hard-to-explain stories to grace the big screen this year, and not only because Mara binge-eats an entire pie in one sitting.
