In the comments to my post on metaphysical vagueness, Andrew Bacon and Robbie Williams raise some pretty good objections to my arguments against vague existence. I think those are good objections, and the argument I wrote in that post doesn’t work. So this is a retraction of it.

On a more positive note, here are a couple of things happening around the web.

The Klement papers are a big part of the reason that I’ve been talking about the semantic paradoxes around here so much, and I particularly recommend them.
