All day, day after day.

Something is badly wrong here.

So I just finished watching a pretty good episode of Law and Order, where they found an old VW bus in the river complete with murdered remains. The crime traced back to '68, and involved escalating student protests about the war. The real story was about the covert tactics by the NY police to foment the protests, and their efforts to continue to cover it up so many years later (the victim was actually undercover).

After it was over, I went to delete the file as I always do, so I don't start it again. It was then I noticed that it was episode 911.

FREAKOUT...well, not really, but was still as much of a strange coincidence as I have had for a while.

Treat a man as he appears to be, and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be.

The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody's fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.

-Katherine Mansfield

Nothing is worth more than this day.

When did Gardner's become Bimbo Bakeries??

Apparently it's a Mexican conglomerate, but in the U.S. that's just a stupid fucking name.

Punctuation is important. My blushing bride used to yell “DON'T STOP." Now it is more like “DON'T. STOP."
