CINDY: I'm witcha on the loss of your winged friend. Perhaps more than I'd like to be, since Pixel's been in the hospital for over a week now (and my, how those bills do mount up!), and will be returning home (probably Friday) to a month and a half of having pills shoved down his throat, and a week of my having to shoot a pony-bottle's-worth of fluids under the skin for a couple weeks.

ADAM: You know, you would THINK that one of the show's legal consultants would have taken a look at the script in question, and grabbed a producer:
"Listen--this script about the retarded guy? It can't work."
"What? What are you talking about?!?"
"I'm telling you, it won't work."
"Well, what do YOU know about it? This is the future! You're a lawyer--what do YOU know about the future?
"Oh, more than you'd think. For instance, I know a lot about YOUR future. The one with the huge lawsuit in it."

The poster who averred that there was no difference between the presidential candidates because they came from similar backgrounds is desperately off base. Such thoughts led people to nihilistic votes for Nader last time, and installed a drunk in the White House who has led us to pointless war, the revulsion of mankind, and economic blight. As a lawyer, let me add that there is an enormous, fundamental, and vital difference between the way inm which W and Kerry view society and law -- or do you want an America with Antonin Scalia as Chief Justice?

In a bizarre turn of events, I agree with Rob: I think Kerry's choice of running mate could make the difference for undecided voters. I know I'm reserving judgement on him until the convention to see which way he breaks. Hell, the guy needs something to make him appealing.

Does anyone think Bush will choose a new running mate for this election? Or do the Republicans really think that Dick Cheney can run for president in 2008? Anyone heard anything about the possibility of a change in Bush's ticket?

A-TC,
I don't know if the Century City episode is being investigated, but just doing some quick poking around on the 'net indicates that just about everyone that saw that episode thought of FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON. It's still listed on some sites as being the name for that show as opposed to what it was called when it aired, "A Mind is a Terribile Thing to Lose".

If you've got contact with Daniel Keyes, then he definitely should look into this as it's painfully obvious that this is a blatant ripoff.

And for those that care, Century City is now kaput so they probably won't be airing any of the episodes again.

Other News...
Kerry will win. Not sure about a VP candidate, but Edwards would only be a good choice if Kerry truly likes him. There is no way in hell Edwards will win his home state (I'm talking NC, not SC, since that's where his seat is) and I don't think he'd pull enough Southern votes to matter, but I think he would bring the same thing Gore brought to Clinton's ticket: bright individual who would bring something to the White House other than votes.

Quite frankly, that's why Bush brought Cheney on board. And, yes, Cheney will continue to be Bush's VP. The only way Cheney would step down is if the Republicans forced him to, but that would be unlikely since Bush seems to be on tenuous ground lately and Dick is a bright guy, baboon heart and all.

Also, since PAB agrees with Rob, I think the fifth seal will be opened in the coming weeks.

I don't have much to add about the Bush and Kerry debate. I've vented more than enough on the subject, and really, gang, what else can be offered? We know Kerry's a lackluster, middle-of-the-road candidate, the safe choice of a timid party, but he's fairly competent and might actually do some good. We also know that George Bush is a corrupt, incompetent thug, and in a civilized world he and his whole rotten party would be kept in cages so we can have fun poking them with sticks.

There's really not a hell of a lot left to say. The only choice I have is whether swallow any hope I might have and vote for Kerry, or to cast a defiant vote for Ralph Nader because I resent the cowardly fear-mongering the Democrats throw at progresives.

On the other hand, _South Park_ did a wonderfully vicious take-out on _The Passion of the Christ_. Kyle having nightmares of stabbing Christ's side with a spear, Cartman starting neo-Nazi marchs in town, and Mel Gibson going absolutely batshit loco when Stan and Kenny try to get their money back. And the final shot was, well, just fuckin' terrific.

>if Kerry does take it I'm coming back after you with your own words to make your life an unbelievable hell<

Rob, if Bush does lose, I will be so awash in rapture, so besides myself in gleeful frenzy, that your fire and brimstone will only serve to bring balance back to my otherwise ongoing orgasmic existence.

And I'll need that, because the neighbors are only going to tolerate me shrieking in ecstasy in the street for so long...

I'd pay good money to see Kerry, Nader and Bush debate. The tag team of the year. Bush would drool into a puddle of horse puckey.

Rob, I will not L.. anymore this week. Just for you my pookie bear. When I laugh, I laugh in silence.

Now you gotta tell our Cindy that she is no longer allowed to smile.

--------------

I just found out that the company that had four members killed in Fallujah were a private mercenary outfit. CNN says that they were protecting food shipments. I don't buy it. Why not use the regular military? Or UN peace keepers?

It was a tragic set of deaths, but black bag ops is not a good sign.

According to the Wells News Service:

Kerry has 79% of the Eloi vote, but

Bush has 98% of the Morlock vote.

GUNTHER,

Thanks for the tip. A computer maintenance expert actually told me the best option would be to re-install Internet Explorer from scratch, but if that fails, I'll follow your directions.

At this rate, I'll be Amish by the end of the year.

Spybot S&D worked wonders with me. You might want to try that before you re-install Explorer.

Hi -- SOmeone please supply me with the year of Ms. Lawrence's birth so I can properly include her on the worldcon memorial page.
