How does the pathology of Serbian Christians relate to Priam’s daughter Cassandra, and W.H. Auden?

The Belmont Club is a great blog. Imagine a mind as a television. Most of our brains are compartmentalized like a plasma television- millions of individual pixels each contain just a smidgeon of information- they all act separately but the edges blur at a distance- The Belmont Club’s author, Wretchard, has a different kind of brain. His is like an LCD television- a sea of crystals floating in a goldfish bowl. (Bear with me- I’m buying a television and just talked to the dude at Sear’s yesterday.)

Because Wretchard’s brain lacks the usual number of compartments he makes weird things relate well. Cassandra is a good example. The title of the post is the Cassandra of Greek myth. The subject of the post is how multiculturalism relates to Islamist terrorism, and the end of post is a poem by W.H. Auden.

Sometimes I just “get” Wretchard and sometimes, frankly, I need to read one of his posts over and over before I feel the click. But I always feel it because Wretchard doesn’t cheat. And, even when I disagree with him, I appreciate the way he’s led my mind to create new paths betwixt previously unfamiliar compartments.
