Excerpts From A Newspaper Article

"The basis for the new accusations, some of which were classified, was not disclosed at the hearing. Tribunal members acknowledged they were just as confused as the detainees about the origin of some of the allegations.

"At this point, we don't know why you are being accused of being a member of the XXX Group," one military officer, whose name was redacted from the tribunal transcript, told B. "Do you have any idea why you are being connected with this group?"

"I don't know," B replied. "I've been here for three years and these accusations were just told to me.""

"One detainee was judged a threat in part because he was a karate expert and had taught martial arts to XXXian orphans, tribunal records show. He was also classified as potentially dangerous because he was familiar with computers.

Another detainee was flagged because he had performed mandatory service in the YYYian army more than a decade ago, as a cook."

Aren't these excerpts from Kafka's novel "The Trial" rather than from a newspaper article1?

[1]from this WaPo article, which I looked up to understand the background of this fundamentally redeeming US Supreme Court decision.

What Fish Are You Chasing?

Michael Dudok De Wit's "The Monk and The Fish (Le Moine et Le Poisson)" - brilliant! His other short, "Father and Daughter" is quite lovely as well.

Schopenhauer On Love

As channeled by the British flâneur Alain de Botton: so is asking for/giving up a phone number in a bar an indirect way of asking for a baby, i.e, expressing again the "will to life"?
