Review excerpt of the day

From "Genetic Park," Dave Itzikoff's review of Michael Crichton's novel Next:

... surely history should reserve a special place for the day in 2005 when Michael Crichton was invited to the White House to meet with George W. Bush. Imagine: the modern era's leading purveyor of alarmist fiction seated side by side with Michael Crichton.
-NY Times Book Review, Jan. 7, 2007, p. 8

The good news: Last night President Bush admitted he's made some mistakes in Iraq. The bad news: he's planning on making the same mistakes again.

I know it shouldn't make a difference...

...but knowing that Maya Angelou and Ayn Rand were born Marguerite Johnson and Alisa Rosenbaum kind of takes the bounce out of my step.

Don't assault snowmen in South Park...

(from the January Park News Police Blotter:)

A resident from Brownsville Road called the South Park Police Department to report an assault with a weapon. The SPPD discovered that the resident had placed an inflatable snowman in his front yard. The resident's uncle did not agree with the location and shot the snowman with a shotgun. The SPPD observed the deflated snowman with a shotgun hole in it and recovered a 20-gauge shotgun shell casing. The resident stated that he was within ten feet of the snowman when his uncle shot it. The SPPD located the uncle and arrested him for aggravated assault with a weapon, reckless endangerment, and firearm discharge violations.

(Unanswered questions: can you be arrested for assaulting a Christmas decoration? Did the police draw an outline of the deflated snowman on the yard? Did someone notify Bill O'Reilly about such an egregious act in the War on Christmas?)

So there.  
The kgb@kgb.com e-mail address is now something other than kgb@kgb.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used kgb@kgb.com as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that kgb@kgb.com was no longer kgb@kgb.com but rather kgbarkes@gmail.com which is longer than kgb@kgb.com and more letters to type than kgb@kgb.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than kgb@kgb.com but actually just as functional as kgb@kgb.com? I sent e-mails from the kgb@kgb.com address to just about everybody I knew who had used kgb@kgb.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the kgb@kgb.com change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which kgb@kgb.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for kgb@kgb.com would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that kgb@kgb.com no longer is the kgb@kgb.com they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. kgb@kgb.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
