    I just finished David Sedaris’s _When you are Engulfed by Flames_. (Hilarious series of Gavin Menzies, exploring what part China might or might not have had in the sparking of the european Renaissance. (he’s voting “yes”. So far, he has presented a pretty good case that there were some minor contributions. I can’t tell if he is just a slow-to-develop- the-case writer, if he is over-estimating the importance of said contributions, or if he is deliberatly overstating his case for the purposeds of drama to create interest in something fairly mundane:

    The fact that all civilizations have drawn on inspiration, information, and exchange from other civilizations in their development.

  3. Weird. I wonder what happened. Maybe the spam filter is now taking bites out of comments- instead of just swallowing them whole.
