Eh...I guess it's better than smoking crack you found in the gutter.

I just wonder what The Church feels about a non-gender specific woman who wrote Exquisite Corpse defending a church from THE CHURCH.

The only reason I picked up her short story book so long ago is because it was the first book I had ever seen with an Ellison blurb on the cover. I knew, therefore, that this was work that should be read. Been a reader ever since.
The medium is the message.

someone should call michael moore,"the pope and me"has a ring to it.

the pope could explain that "it's just not economicaly viable any longer, we have to cut costs".

Any opinion on this from Frank Church?

It seems sather absurd that a PD would crucify people in a church, on the orders of The Church. But that's what history's all about, I'd say.


Maybe it makes as much sense as imagining supporters of both Palestine and Israel meeting up on a BART train to duke it out -- or perhaps if the hordes of street gangsters here decided to move to the Middle East, in order to terrorize pedestrians over there.



Say, here's good news. A black cat crossing my path led to a cash reward, for once. One block after I see this black cat trying to cross into a busy street, from under a car, I notice a sign about a lost pet. I couldn't remember exactly which block it was on, so it took a bit of retracing and searching.

Turns out it was the right cat, though; gone missing two days earlier, from home about a block away and around a couple of corners.
