THE FURTHER WONDERS OF GOOGLE

A few moments ago, I idly Googled myself.  [No snarking, please].  Google helpfully named eighteen other people whom those Googling me also Googled [I do not even want to talk about the depth of detail Google seems to know about me, and about you, and about everyone else on the planet.]  The first five were Immanuel Kant, Karl Marx, Barrington Moore, Jr., John Stuart Mill, and Patrick Wolff [my chess grandmaster son.]   That strikes me as seriously cool.  I am quite happy to hang out with those guys in cyberspace.   The next thirteen are Lewis White Beck, Andrew Kliman, Walter Savitch [a hotshot computer scientist -- how come?], Herbert Marcuse, Tobias Barrington Wolff [my brilliant law professor son], Norman Kemp Smith, Allan Bloom, Jonathan Wolff [London University political philosopher, wrote a book on Marx], Joseph Raz, Gerald Cohen, Marty Peretz, John Rawls, and Leslie Green [big deal Professor of Jurisprudence at Oxford whose major book is The Authority of the Law  -- that makes sense.]

No women or persons of color, note.

I feel responsible for the Kliman addition :)

On a side note, J Wolff's book on Marx is seriously quite atrocious. Appallingly bad for someone who studied on Cohen and claims to have read Marx.
