Here they come a-weaseling...

In the spirit of the season, I'm sending the following in the form of a greeting card to all the spineless, corporate-owned Democrats who were elected during the mid-terms solely on the basis of being Not Republican and who still, somehow, seemed to have missed the mandate they were handed by an angered citizenry:

I offer, without obligation -either explicit or implicit- my forthright felicitations and sincere wishes that the coming weeks, which may- dependent upon your unique and personal ideological perspective, encompass a series of deistically oriented and/or telluric events with which you may, or may not, at your sole and unilateral discretion, associate either substantial or inconsequential significance, transpire in a manner through which you achieve or transcend your expectations, should you possess them.

And Happy New Year, too.

You weasel.

Bad taste, revisited

The return of Don Imus to the airwaves prompted a review of what I had written about his fall from grace. Re-reading the entry jogged my memory, a few inquiries with some search engines and -ta da!- my nominee for the funniest cartoon of all time:

(Copyright © Sam Gross)

My good fortune continued... a check of revealed Sam Gross' I Am Blind and My Dog Is Dead is now back in print in a lovely hardcover edition, just in time for the holidays. You know what to do.

A large collection of Gross' New Yorker cartoons is available at Cartoon Bank; they can be purchased on-line as high-quality prints or t-shirts.

But, alas, I Am Blind and My Dog Is Dead, inked during his tenure as cartoon editor of the National Lampoon, isn't among them.

Who would have thought bad taste would be in such short supply?

Mummified dinosaur found

Scientists today announced the discovery of an extraordinarily preserved "dinosaur mummy" with much of its tissues and bones still encased in an uncollapsed envelope of skin.

Preliminary studies of the 67-million-year-old hadrosaur, named Dakota, are already altering theories of what the ancient creatures' skin looked like and how quickly they moved, project researchers say. (Photo here.)

Quote of the day

Dick Cheney is still a war criminal, Hillary Clinton is still Satan and I'm back on the radio.

We signed for five years, and one reason I did is it's going to take that long to get even with everybody.

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