Mom, I unintentionally fibbed about Amos. He doesn't drink things like after shave; he much prefers Boone's Farm or Bartell & James, when he can panhandle enough money for some..

I am not now, nor have I ever been, a supporter of George W. Bush. And I'm not going to put my hands there to be one. Let him use Laura.

Then there is no excuse; innocence on the grounds of insanity has just been proven to be inapplicable. There will be a letter from Kantwee, Fugham and Howe along in the next mail, representing the interests of the Amos Anti-Defamation League.

The Truth is ALWAYS a valid defense! As Davy Crockett taught me, "Be sure you're right and then go ahead!" The Truth will set me free! Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty/This is all you know and all you need to know! Truth is the silliest thing under the sun. When truth is nothing but the truth, it's unnatural, it's an abstraction that resembles nothing in the real world. Truth always rests with the minority, and the minority is always stronger than the majority, because the minority is generally formed by those who really have an opinion, while the strength of a majority is illusory, formed by the gangs who have no opinion—and who, therefore, in the next instant (when it is evident that the minority is the stronger) assume its opinion ... while Truth again reverts to a new minority. Truth is always a delusion.

Ergo, Truth as a defense is illusional.

Either that, or your entire logorrheic spasm was. I am inclined to the latter interpretation, myself.

Mom! Amos is using big words again! Words that only him and me know what they mean! You told him to eschew such banal utterances! Mom! Make him stop, desist, cease, halt, hold, freeze, conclude, terminate, and have done with such. Mom!

Sticking my head in for a quick hello.

I've been trying to get my computer to do something it isn't programmed to do. Tough thing, that. I bought a movie from Europe that I knew wouldn't play on the DVD player but thought it would play on the computer. Nope. And there are programs that are supposed to help with this, but so far they don't. Idiot film producers, trying to control the marketplace with these idiotic zones, but I bet they'd sell a lot more videos if everyone could see any of them.

Okay, back to work. And to occasional tinkering with the software.

Do not a liar AND a whiner be,
For such, abjuring truth, cannot be Free,
Teach then your daughters this, likewise your sons:
Lie well, or whine; but never both at once.

This is what one of the links below says:

I didn't click on it, mostly because I figger God has bigger things on her mind than how much I weigh.

Here's most of what it says:

Hello my name is Dr. Don VerHulst, M.D., a Medical Doctor, Naturopathic Health Practioner, and ordained minister. I am blessed to be part of the FaithMeds™ Institute, which strives to develop health ministries all over the world.

Over the years I have worked with hundreds of patients, just like you, who have struggle with personal battles concerning their health. You may have one thing in common with my patients . . . your health problems are NOT YOUR FAULT! Follow me here and I will share with you some important facts that can change your health for the better, for the rest of your life!

Follow Me Here and I will share with you an important medical discovery that can change your health for the better for the rest of your life!

You see, like you, my patients did everything the 'other medical experts' wanted them to do but sadly, they weren't losing the weight long term. It just wasn't working.

That's when I tell my patients that it's time to choose to take personal responsibility for their own health. "Good Health Is A Choice", that you must make for yourself. It is your health and it is your responsibility. No one cares about your health more than you.

The best indication of good health is healthful weight loss. GlucoFree™ is the fastest and safest way to reach that goal that I have ever seen.

Our Standard American Diet (SAD) lacks many necessary primal nutrients. To compensate for this, our research scientists applied God's blue print for optimal health by developing highly effective supplements that help nourish your body as He intended.

We are only as healthy as our individual cells, FaithMeds™ Institute's supplements feed and restore your body, starting at the cellular level.

Due to recent advances in nutraceutical medicine, the choice of good health is now easier to make than ever before. Now we have better, safer alternatives to prescription drugs.

Big Johnny Fastus brought the tablets down from the mountain last night to the Legion Hovel.

No big deal; the drugstore is uphill from the Hovel and the Legionaires and Legionettes were in sore need of aspirin.

Johnny has been awarded the "Legion Lifesaver" medal for his heroic trek to and from Walgreens and his purchase of a jar of 1,000 aspirin tablets, enough to last the Hovel Habitues at least two weeks, if not less.

John-Boy Faustus, on a dare,
Made a deal with Big Rapaire
He'd withstand ole Satan's rant,
But Rapaire laughed, "Betcha can't!"

Rapaire said, with evil chortle,
"Secret words make men immortal!"
"Bring them wisdom, deep, all-seeing!"
"Going weeks not even peeing!"

John-Boy said, "Let's rock an' roll!
I'll start with one eternal soul!"
Satan thought 'twas pretty cool
To watch Rapaire draw out the fool.

He agreed with Rapaire's scam,
Said "Only you could flim this flam!"
Soon, ole John Boy had a deal,
Wisdom made his pore head reel!

He kissed Helen, late of Troy,
Overwhelmed was pore John Boy.
Endless rows of winsome bitches,
Endless insight, endless riches!

All the world lay at his toeses
He was wiser, then, than Moses!
Lined the ladies up and kissed 'em
Overloaded nervous system.

Soon his brain became eroded,
John-Boy's human mind exploded!
He became a German scandal,
More than one poor soul could handle.

Thrashed with pure nervous exhaustion,
Wished he'd acted with more caution.
Satan said, "You've earned your pay!"
Swept ole John Boy's soul away.

Gave Rapaire a bunch of ducats,
"Hell, the dough is free, so fuck it!"
"I'm above life on the level,
Why not grab dough from the Devil?"

Ole Rapaire felt rich and mellow,
Bought a home in Pocatello,
Some say he's an awful jerk,
For doing Satan's dirty work.

But Rapaire, with mien contrarian,
Says "I am but a librarian!"
"I do research through the mazes,
Digging long-lost magic phrases!"

"Who are you to give a fuck,
If I turn an extra buck?"
Not withstanding this rebuttal,
Locals planned his style to scuttle.

Planned and plotted, girl and fellow,
In the dark, in Pocatello,
'Til at last they brought him down
For plagiarizing Ezra Pound.

No more devil's gold he's spending
No more magic words he's lending.
No more ancient beauties kissing.
Gone mysteriously missing!

Dropped inside the penal schism
Doing time for plagiarism!
Stranger, pause, and say a prayer
For the soul of our Rapaire.

Dear Sir:

I can only suggest that of you had wanted to be named Rapparee, you would have spelled it accordingly. The only possible pronunciation for your present spelling does, indeed, rhyme approximatly with "prayer", "air", and dare I say it, "Nair".


You will find no truly English words in which the ending after a consonant "aire" sounds at all like "aree".

And for you to spitefully seek to discredit so creative and elegant a ballad as my own recent humble contribution on shallow and inacurrate phonological ground is a twist worthy of the most loyal Republican.

Well! I had a crushing response written but it vanished into that great Black Hole in the Internet.

But basically you are correct, Amos: there are no words in English which end in "aire" and are pronounced as "aree." But rather that repeat everything in my now-vanished post, I refer you to the Oifig na Gaeilge at the Dublin Institute of Technology, where I am certain that you will find that the word "Rapaire" is a variant of the word "Ropaire" and that both are pronounced "Rapparee."

The Absolutely Fantastic Adventure of Brave Sir Amos, Knight of the Table Round and Sans Pur et Sans Reproache

Amidst the angst of battle sound
Brave Sir Amos would be found,
Round him bodies steeped in gore
Men who'd never breath no more.
Cloven skulls and pierced hearts
Guts outside their inside parts
Legs and arms all scattered 'round
Scarlet plumes and trousers browned
Gouts of blood and bits of brains
Brave Sir Amos faced the trains
Of Celt and Pict and Saxon foe
Free to trade them blow for blow
Iberian, Banjoist and Basque
But fell Sir Amos to his task!
Slaughtered he the serried rank
And armed file. Until a tank
Lumbered fast into his sight
He quaked, but did not take his flight
For overhead, above the foe
An A-10 Warthog struck a blow
All liveried in puce and orange

The brave Sir Amos to entape
With its tongue, all slimy spit
Envenomed like the Devil's pit!
But brave Sir Amos stood his ground
Amidst the flames that danced around
His armor pure, but slightly scorched
By dragon's breath and forward marched
E'en unto the dragons head
And hacked it off and then he said
"Fair maiden I you this present
As token of my pure intent."
She cried, she shrieked, away did faint,
Her visage fair did look like paint
Of palest hue or whitewash pure
But her lips of crimson quite a lure
And brave Sir Amos kissed these
Again and again, like tasting cheese,
He could could nay stop, he could nay quit,
'Til damsel woke and took a fit

Now do the Right Thing, by The Book!
Now marry me within the month,

Headstood he in blasted wood
Knowing that he did no good
To his insides or to his head
So got he to his feet instead
And like the good and parfait knight
He was he thought his hair a fright
So sprang he to his noble steed
Knowing that a comb he'd need
Ere he could to table come
And drink and eat and pound the drum-
Like table with the other knights
And drink, carouse, and get in fights
Until the rosy daybreak came
Bringing o'erindulgence's bane
Calling like the other louts
For aspirin, silence, patience, clouts
For those so much dropped a pin
And death to those who did more sin!
Searched for a comb he high and low
Here and there, above, below,
In and out, around and through,
On stormy sea, in morning dew,
On mountain high, in valley low,
In castle, keep, and bungalow!
And then one day he did espy
A comb that really caught his eye!
Bejeweled it was, in platinum set
Its very teeth as black as jet!
Its rattail of Einsteinium
