How tragic. T&Ps for your daughter, SRS, and for the young lady and her family and friends. Truly sad.

This is a grim statistic; I can only wonder how many promising lives we lose in a day or a year because of the insane meddling of unhinged belief-system merchants. Do they number in the thousands? If not mortally--how many are walking wounded from induced madness of enforced unreality?

Sad news today. A young woman who was friends with my daughter throughout public school died at her own hand on Tuesday. I had a call this morning and my daughter will come down for the viewing and funeral. Why mention it on BS? Because her life was manipulated to pieces by the BS of fundamentalist church communities. Left alone, she may (or may not) have been unstable, but the church-like condolences offered on the online guest book annoy me no end. She isn't in a "better place." She is a dead 22-year-old girl. The mentality that says this is better than a full rich life is absurd and is what helped put her here.

Pardon me. I'll go take care of the weekend's business. I won't try to post a remark like this online in the obit because the eyeballs that scan these things won't let it through.

And after clicking and standing up to three-quarters of the performance, I can double that in spades.

Even Shatner should know better than to try to make Hamlet out of Elton John, for crying out loud.

Someone just turned this up on facebook, a YouTube clip of the Shatman doing Rocket Man in 1978. I only just started it - I can't stand to watch - is it really as awful as I think it is?

Now, I'm not sayin' I'm a better general or even Lieutenant Colonel than ol' George, but iffen my scouts said, "Jeez, man, there must be a couple thousand Indians over there" I sure as heck wouldn't divide my troops, like Gaul, into three parts. And I wouldn't send the troops with the ammunition off on a scout. In fact, I wouldn't even disobey orders -- I'd let my CO know what I'd found and just sit there and dig rifle pits and things.

Screw this "Bugler, sound the charge!" stuff. Man there's like 3,000 Indians out there and you're outnumbered better'n three to one in your whole regiment!

"Please Mr Custer,
I don't wanna go...."

Many's the cock has been goosed before its time, and many the goose never found a cock. These thing are often relative.

Custer was a lot like Inspector Clouseau, he "never refuse the challenge". ;-) Imagine his delight at catching all those Indians by surprise, all gathered in one place at the same time. Why, he couldn't have planned it better! He could see the presidency floating gently down into his outstretched hands, just like a bit of goosedown...

Thank you, Amos, for the poem. I haven't stopped smiling when I think about it.

Thank you, Stilly, for the great suggestion. I'll put some volunteers right to the needle. Maybe one of them will also make a fuzzy steering wheel cover.

Rapaire, I don't think you need worry about being scalped. Try to smooth things over up there, okay?

Gotta run, folks. I just got a message from that idiot LTC G. A. Custer. He's is some sort of deep shit up in the Little Big Horn area. Something about "all the Indians in the world" and "I made a big boo-boo" and "send help!" This will take a while, I think. I'll check in when I can.

Well, you know the old saying: One major battle, one ex-National Guardsman.

(The Legion saddled up and rode to his rescue, but I don't think he's in the Little Big Thirst Saloon.)

Okay, Amos.

I arrive at BWI on Thursday, September 30, at 7:55 p.m.
I will spend that night in a nearby motel, which is TBD.
I depart BWI on Monday, October 4, at 1:45 p.m., which means I have to be there by 12:45.

See? I really did it. And I decided against the Sousaphone, but I will be bringing the double bass AND my Steinway Concert Grand. I'm still undecided on the timpani: do I bring the set, or just the big one?

If any of you would like to see it, the new bookmobile (sans shelves, yet) is parked out in the south parking lot. I, yes, I, drove it all around town yesterday and backed it into its present spot where it awaits new shelves. I didn't squish too many people in the process.

Dear MOM,
As you know, I'm on the selection committee for Idaho's Book of the Year award. I just thought you'd like to know that as I was just about to compose a poem about the 18th letter of the alphabet for my siblings, an email from the committee came through and my brain took a detour into Libraryish poetical musings. So, if you know these obscure books, which of course YOU do, you'll know who won first prize and honorable mention. I'll have to write the other poem another time.

Oh shall we embrace the inevitable
and arrive at consensus on fire?

Our thoughtfully worded analyses fly
through the Idaho cyberspace wires.

Debating profundity, judging the prose
to consider works, fiction and non.

We've read Ferrell Swan's journey with the coyotes,
And heard Isaac Moses yarn on.

The others have merit, no doubt about that
But we must agree to decide

Which Idaho book gets the treasured award
By our choice all the state must abide!

Wading in from soggy Texas. Here I worried my sister's vacation to Ocracoke Island in North Carolina was going to be spoiled by a hurricane. They waited a day or two then were able to head out. I told her she should come to Texas instead, but just as well she didn't. We got all of the rain.

There's a birds nest dangling on a branch outside my office window. Someone check and see if MOM still has that bird's nest collection out in the laundry room? I'll trim this one out of the tree if she want's it (it's kind of woven around several branches and has an entry hole on the bottom side of it. Looks like something the National Geographic would write about in a scrubby tree on the African veldt).

Perhaps you should get a Lert. They have a well-earned reputation for providing initiative to inertia. To counter your inErt, lackadaisical intertia, you should even considering training to be a Lert yourself. That would make ALL the difference.

Well, you are a natural Fred Astaire, I must say. However, it is an implicit part of the definition of work, as used in the original offer, that the do-er of the work provides any necessary resistance to reaction; thus, the ditch-digger is not allowed to let himself float freely above the ditch and be wafted hither and yon by the counter-reaction to his digging effort, but must hold firmly to his original position, resulting in the valuable moving of dirt and such and the resultant valuable prodiction of a well-made ditch.

I doubt I could sell the board on your covering only the reactions; they would be a health hazard without the offsetting benefits of well-earned morale.

"The work done by a force acting on an object depends on the inertial frame of reference, because the distance covered while applying the force does. Due to Newton's law of reciprocal actions there is a reaction force; it does work depending on the inertial frame of reference in an opposite way. The total work done is independent of the inertial frame of reference."

I am simply going to do the reciprocal actions to your energy acting upon an inertial frame of reference. As such, I actually should be paid the same amount as you are, but I'm giving you a bargain 'cause you're one of Mom's kids.

Rapaire:

Not to beat a dead horse, or anything, but perhaps there is a fundamental misalignment in your understanding of the word "work" in the above discussion. In our culture--if not in Idaho--work is generally considered to be directed effort of mind and/or body which results in a valuable service or product to someone other than self.

If the expression "someone other than self" puzzles you, we may need to undercut the instructional level here. Do let me know.

And by the way I curse Ikea!! I finally went and bought this composite four drawer thing to put the printers on. It came in flat boxes with little bags of hardware and wordless cartoon assembly instructions which did not match the parts completely. You know the drill.

Six hours later we were very proud of the result. I am sure buying from Ikea saved me $150. So they effectively hired me as a journeyman for $15-20 / hour. Bring your own tools, no benefits.
But the house is finally coming together, the paintings are back up, the new carpet looks swell, the paint is lovely, life is good.

An unfortunate thing happened last week, Rapaire. Hillary experienced a Level 5 blowout and is hors de combat. I am seeking a repair person. Sarah is holding up just fine, however, being made of very tough stuff. Amos is going to have to wait for a bit.

Those Barbie dolls are no use at all. They're too small, too hard, and they lack certain vital parts. A complete waste of time. I really can't understand what all the fuss is about, but I guess Mattel is just engaging in false advertising, as usual.
