I don't know if many people on moblog have heard of Ken Rockwell. Not much point in explaining if you haven't, but Hari & I frequently chuckled that every time he turned his cap around backwards, he switched into Ken mode.

The picture at http://www.kenrockwell.com/index.htm will explain all.

Ken, if you're reading this, meet HariKenJaro.

* Rockwellian policy isn't doublethink - Ken doesn't even need to think once
