I have never had so many friends share one of my found videos before. Of course, it is raining really hard, not much to do.

Before The Internet

There was the Whole Earth Catalogue.

There Are Good Poets And There Are Better Poets

And then there's Pinsky, always with the jokes.

Need is my tactic. Detachment
is my strategy.

I Was Told There Were 18

Some Corgis were mated with dachsunds (most notably Pipkin, who belonged to Princess Margaret) to create ‘Dorgis’.
At present, The Queen owns four Corgis: Linnet, Monty, Willow and Holly and three Dorgis: Cider, Candy and Vulcan.
Now I am better informed. I notice she allows them to jump up. Encourages them even. I am doing the right thing.

Jack Bauer, Inc.

Kept hearing the talking heads tell me last night how we'd be hearing a lot more about J-SOC  in the coming days.
The day came and Spencer Ackerman came through. Have admired his reporting since earlier days at TPM. Journalism is not dead.
Ed. "Hey, Spence, we need 50 inches on JSOC toot sweet."
SA. Here.
Silent squirrels, indeed. McCrystal. Extreme rendition.
So far no one has plugged in the Panetta/Petraeus thingie in light of what we now know was going on.
Hey, Spence.

My New Motto

You cannot make the dead man write what you want.
Rec'd this morning from my daily poetry service, a quite lovely piece — featuring chocolate — by Marvin Bell who, I believe, is indeed a dead man. still lives part-time in Port Townsend.
Live as if you were already dead indeed.

FOX News: African American Man Kills Elderly White Man

Because Of Roger Ebert

I was motivated to learn how to get my computer to speak to me in the morning.
I wanted Vicki to greet me when I turned the computer on, but that's a little down the road. But all I have to do is highlight a piece of text I keep on my desktop, press the selected keys and I get the greeting I composed.
I love it. he makes me feel good.
Why have I lost the ability to use cap s? Vicki?
