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.

It's all relative
In this morning's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Peter Leo notes in "The Morning File" column that the Germans have the highest IQs in Europe. Which reminds me of an observation by my friend, Dave McNeill: "No wonder the Germans thought they were the master race. They have France on one side and Poland on the other."

Quote of the day (inside joke edition)
Don't ask for a light load, but rather ask for a strong back.
(Or a four-wheel dolly from Daniel's Hardware.)
From Zay Smith's QT column in the Chicago Sun-Times:
News Headline: "Indiana goes on daylight-saving time."
News Headline: "Suspected tornadoes sweep across Indiana."
Still awaiting word from Pat Robertson.
Mr. Smith has an interesting perspective. Commenting on a headline citing a study that churchgoers live longer, he observes, "Doesn't that mean people who don't go to church can get to heaven first?"
Incidentally, that 01:02:03 business I noted in a prior post was also in his column this morning, but Dave Anderson sent me the email first.
It would be much simpler if the guy who sits around and thinks up these things would just start his own blog. Then I could get some extra sleep in the morning instead of writing this stuff. Except now I know I'll be awake at 01:02:03 tomorrow morning...
Set the alarm.
Early tomorrow morning, at two minutes and three seconds after one o'clock, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06. (Thanks to Dave Anderson for pointing this out.)
If you're not a strict observer of military time, you can keep your sleep schedule intact and wait until 01:02:03 pm tomorrow afternoon. Purists will claim it's 13:02:03, but I've always found the concept of 13 o'clock to be somewhat unsettling.
If you use the alternate calendar notation method, tomorrow is 05/04/06, and you folks will have to wait until May 4.
Everyone clear? Everyone tingly with anticipation? Good. You're welcome.

It's a sad fact that fifty percent of marriages in this country end in divorce. But hey, the other half end in death. You could be one of the lucky ones!

The idea of Daylight Saving time is like trying to be taller by cutting off your head and standing on it.

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...
