Just need to check in....

Name: Laurie Source: unca20090104.htm Yesterday was a bad day for me. I work on a job where the threat of violence is part of the atmosphere, in the air so to speak. Most of the time it doesn't bother me--or should I say SEEM to bother me--too much. But every now and then it gets to me and then I n...

Enjoyed fable...

Name: Laurie Source: unca20081110.htm What a wild, improbably tale! You are one terrific fiction writer, Harlan. As for Moondog...Yes! Wow. I have some wonderful memories of meeting him in the late 1960s on the streets of New York (42nd Street, I think), going to several of his poetry readings and ...

OK, Harlan, points well taken about Sobell. I'll skip the vast right wing conspiracy viewpoint and just settle for the spot on description of Sobell: Asshole. Works for me.

Name: Laurie Source: unca20081110.htm Thank you, Harlan, for your supportive answer to my post on Morton Sobell. Just one more comment, though, for anyone out there who wants to think about it (I'm not sure I do)...Did anyone notice the extremely bad timing of Sobell's NY Times confession? It appea...

The Committee to Secure Justice etc....

Name: Laurie Source: unca20081110.htm A topic for possible discussion: Morton Sobell's interview last month in which he confessed that he had, indeed, been guilty of espionage, the crime for which he was convicted and sentenced to 30 years back during the bad ol' days of McCarthyism around the time...

The Nobel, an explanation

Name: Laurie
Source: unca20081110.htm
I admit I have not read Jean-Claude Gustave. However, my theory as to why Harlan did not win is a simple one: The Nobel committee feared his acceptance speech as any reasonable, sane proper, well adjusted person would. I can only imagine...!

3 Stooges, Marx Bros, L & H

Name: Laurie Source: unca20080913.htm I consider all of the above comic teams strong anti-depressants. But I admit that I tend to favor Laurel and Hardy. I once fell out of a chair laughing at Tit for Tat and laughed so hard I couldn't fully partake of the dinner my friends and I ordered at a resta...

Name: Laurie Source: unca20080913.htm Before we move along, Harlan, I just wanted to say that I knew it would be all right because it was Ellison vs. a mere medical procedure and also because it was completely unthinkable for me to believe anything else. I am very, very happy to read Susan's and yo...

About "I Have No Mouth..."

I don't actually find this a negative story for all of the horrific situation and events. I think I remember Harlan saying that or something like it in one of his interviews (sorry, don't remember which one). The narrator's humanity and heroic qualities still exist enough to enable him to make the u...

May it all go smoothly today, Harlan

With good doctoring, your strong spirit and Susan standing by...you should be good to go for a few more decades at least. I await positive news.
All the best,
Laurie

Name: Laurie Source: unca20080731.htm Brian Siano's post about the teacher and the Gorey book really got to me. As a teacher myself, it upsets me when teachers give students the impression that reading comes in two categories--the stuff that is approved by your school and the stuff you shouldn't da...

KOS, I might know about that 1958 show....

Name: Laurie Source: unca20080731.htm It may very well have been a re-run of the show Space Patrol which ran for a couple of years, 1953-54, I believe. It was kinescoped. I have a number of the videotapes made from the original kinescopes and I think I remember a scene such as the one you described...

Joke

Name: Laurie Source: unca20080731.htm This really makes no sense. Maybe that's why I like it. An hour or so past midnight, in a small town, the constable sees one of the town's citizens wandering around aimlessly with wild staring eyes. The constable approaches him and asks, "Why are you wandering ...
