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.

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

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?)

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