As many of you know, with the help of Randy Weivoda, (who actually does most of the work), we’ve maintained a separate website called Ricochetmeetup.com for the benefit of all our Ricochet friends here. On the main page, we list, in order, all the upcoming meetups we know about. In addition, we archive the meetups […]

It’s finals week, which means that last week was the traditional dead week (I note in passing that when I was in school a decade ago, it was dead day, so -evidence for lazy millennials?).  As such, not much was done that week, and little of that was done Thursday or Friday. So, Thursday I was at […]

Mr. Cooke, America’s foremost pundit on Second Amendment and Free Speech issues for his combination of charm and erudition on the subjects, is set to speak to the people of Atlanta tomorrow (Tuesday). Since Ricochet has a noble tradition of supporting young up and coming talent (Hi Fred!), a few of us hope to redundantly fatten […]

Don’t get me wrong; the website is a blast. If you enjoy playing about with it, as I do, then keep doing that. The podcasts are fun; they’re easily in the top five most convenient ways for non-Minnesotans to keep in touch with James Lileks. If that’s all you’re doing with Ricochet, though, you’re missing […]

It looks like we can organize a Milwaukee area meetup, probably somewhere South of the town, for November 8th. Jamesofengland is also my gmail address, and I hope to hear from people who might consider attending there or in the comments here. Alternatively, I’m at 202 821 3001.  Also, I’m organizing debate watching parties for the […]

A long time ago a friend lent me one of her favorite books, The Witching Hour by Anne Rice.  As a rule I don’t care for the horror genre, but this (as well as it’s sequel, Lasher) was excellent stuff.  The Witching Hour is the only book I’ve ever read that has a scene so […]

The Spring meetup today was small but fun. Hopefully, no one wandered in and out without finding us since I did not organize it very well. Boymoose, Seawriter, John Hendrix, and I were able to chat for a couple hours. John thought to bring name tags and Seawriter wrote “Ricochet” on a slip of paper, […]

As I commented in iWc’s post on Capitalism in the Torah. the FG Wife and I heard a draft of that piece just after we retired from iWc’s Shabbat table. That bit of brilliance was the topper on an evening of faith, food, and fellowship. I am especially grateful to have had some Ricochet companionship over […]

Except for me!  But my family insists, so I will not be able to rigorously comb through Ricochet posts for the next 10 days or so while I fidget by the lake.  Please contact me with Meetup information though, as I will be reading email on the sly, along with doing a little writing for Wendy […]
