Name: Earl Wells Source: unca20090706.htm Harlan, there's no need to feel bad about revealing an act of friendship from long ago. Leiber didn't mind people knowing that he went through hard times in the 1970s, and he acknowledged that you helped him with your words to make a new start. I don't thin...

FRITZ LEIBER

Name: Earl Wells Source: unca20090706.htm I well remember reading about Harlan INSPIRING Fritz Leiber to move to better living quarters in San Francisco, but I never knew that Harlan SUBSIDIZED the move. The move I remember reading about took place in 1977. If that's the one Harlan is referring to,...

I was going to make a few notes on the subject of how writers who started out in genre magazines acquire literary respectability but instead I'll limit myself to agreeing with Rich on the importance of novels.

In New York, where I live, David Paterson became governor this year when his predecessor, Eliot Spitzer, quite properly resigned after it became known that he was enjoying himself with a prostitute. Paterson took an interesting approach to the issue of sexual transgressions on the part of high-ranki...

Ok let's talk about Obama. OBAMA is a NEGRO. Noticed that, did you? Now you may not give a fuck about that. I may not give a fuck about that. But it is really going to be a gut-check for many of our fellow Americans in this semi-enlightened land to pull the lever for a brother, no matter how much t...

Both Japan and China have demonstrated considerable capacity for hypocrisy throughout their history. Examples abound -- Japan's attempted conquest of China in the 1930s, which was propagandized as the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere"; China's recent continued subjugation of Tibet w...

Here's Bugliosi on MSNBC Friday morning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtYotUN0VBk My sweetie saw this live & told me that it went on for a few more seconds. The show cut back to Bugliosi, who was still talking so naturally they gave him the business about that. I don't think this is a topic th...

On the other board, Frank Church wrote: "Vincent Bugliosi, the lead prosecutor in the Manson case has a new book out that is a barn burner. He makes the legal case that Bush should be tried for murder for the war and the lies surrounding it. In the book he says things that I would not even say....

ON OBAMA'S FISA VOTE Should Obama have voted for a bad bill? Let's look at some numbers. According to this page , of the 47 Republicans who voted, ALL voted for the bill. This large and solid pro-bill bloc tells me that there was no way to stop this bill from being passed; only a handful of Democrat...

The Theobald book was published by Devin-Adair, which was I think closer to Regnery than it was to the Naval Institute Press. But I could be wrong. I think the book was intended as an indictment not an analysis, even if it didn't use words like treason or crime. Kimmel's foreword can't be seen as ev...

Steve, I'm not anti-military and I don't want to be seen that way so I'll try to say this carefully. It seems to me that when retired military officers are outspoken or go into politics they are often very critical of presidents and brother officers; the military community, for want of a better term...

Silver Star recipient and seriously accomplished military dude Wesley Clark walks into McCain's house and slaps him: http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/06/29/clark.mccain/index.html Do you guys think this is good strategy, or will it backfire? I like to see McCain challenged on his military expertise...
