Conceived above a saloon, delivered into this world by a masked man identified by his heavily sedated mother as Captain Video, raised by a kindly West Virginian woman, a mild-mannered former reporter with modest delusions of grandeur and no tolerance of idiots and the intellectually dishonest.

From the mouths of babes
Seeking a means to escape the 24/7 war coverage, the ongoing assault on our civil liberties and the inanity of war, I decided to just kick back and watch a movie.
My recommendation: South Park: Bigger, Longer and & Uncut, one of the most vulgar, obscene and hilarious films ever made. Released in 1999, its observations on war, censorship and nationalism are especially relevant right now. And what other film can boast a cast featuring Satan and Saddam Hussein, as well as an Academy Award nomination for a song containing the four-letter word?
It's about as subtle as a steaming pile of dog doo. The huge Hollywood production numbers will leave you stunned, like the audience at the end of The Producers "Springtime For Hitler" number. This film makes Blazing Saddles look like The Greatest Story Ever Told.
But it'll kill 80 minutes, and give you something to ponder.

Dolphins and the Military
From this week's Onion, man in the street responses to the question "In a move that has outraged many animal-rights activists, the U.S. Navy is using dolphins to find underwater mines in Iraqi harbors. What do you think?"
"This is the military. We should be amazed they're not using baby chicks."

My. This is harsh.
Just a thought...
"If we want to demoralize the population of Iraq and
sap their will to fight, we ought to show them
videotapes of the South Bronx, Detroit City and the
West Side of Chicago. Take a look, you Iraqis--this
is what we do to our own cities in peacetime. Just
think what we're going to do to yours in a war."

The firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address is now something other than email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that email@example.com was no longer firstname.lastname@example.org but rather email@example.com which is longer than firstname.lastname@example.org and more letters to type than email@example.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than firstname.lastname@example.org but actually just as functional as email@example.com? I sent e-mails from the firstname.lastname@example.org address to just about everybody I knew who had used email@example.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the firstname.lastname@example.org change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which email@example.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for firstname.lastname@example.org would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that email@example.com no longer is the firstname.lastname@example.org they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. email@example.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
