By the way, I've discovered that Eiseley did indeed Read The Whole Thing -- to her story hour children. Eighty-two percent were permanently traumatized, two percent enjoyed every minute of it and are now living in the so called "Giggle Room" at the local hospital, and the rest are still comatose from the shock.

CH: Bring back, bring back,
Bring back the paramedics to me, to me,
Bring back, bring back,
Bring back the paramedics to me.

This morn in a fit of composure
I translated a sentence to Cymraeg,
Into Latin and also Icelandic,
And completely threw Amos off stride!

CH.

And now as I think of poor Amos,
Limping along by the sea,
I burst into great peals of laughter,
And jump up and down in my glee!

CH (twice or more)

Funny how dumbed down the expression "I translate" has become. It used to imply an ability to understand two languages. Now it just means an ability to tap on a QWERTY keyboard.

You ain't gonna find them Icelandic characters on your plain ol' vanilla qwerty keyboard, Amos! Sure, you can find a tilde or a splat or a bang, but umlauts and thorns and suchlike are a right scarce, lessen you go foolin' around. And if you go foolin' around I hope your wife catches you and and puts a cast-iron skillet where it might pound some sense into ya.

So many numbers with 666 in them, and more to come.

Only old time stringband music can protect you now.

Me name's Rod Blagojevich, the ex-governor
I'm on trial though I did nothing wrong
I tried to get someone into the Senate
And now I am singing this song.

CH: With me ring-ring, and a clink-clink, and a dollar
With me ring-ring and a clink-clink and a tie-dee
Sum for a chair that is vacant
'Cause Obama had done moved away.

Our last guv was jailed for all but sheep stealin'
Me brother's a son of a bitch
Me wife's more profane than I am
And I just wanted bad to get rich.

CH.

So I put a Senate seat up for auction
And the FBI tapped all my phones
Suppose I'd appointed my own self --
You'd be deaf in Guam from the groans.

CH.

I'm not guilty of all that corruption
Nor guilty of anything else
A four hour work day just suits me
I've got mine, and yours, and who else?

CH.

So I flew home ever night to Chicago
At the Illinois voters' expense
It's not like I was stealing some money
But it made the unwashed very tense.

CH.

I'll be glad when this trouble is over
If I'm found guilty I'll be in a stew
'Cause they'll lock me up with George Ryan
In a neat little cell built for two.

CH.

Walt Whitman In Democratic Vistas, an 1871 prose work, writes,

I say we had best look our times and lands searchingly in the face, like a physician diagnosing some deep disease. Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us. The underlying principles of the States are not honestly believed in (for all this glow, and these melodramatic screamings), nor is humanity itself believed in. What penetrating eye does not everywhere see through the mask? . . . . It is as if we were somehow being endowed with a vast and more and more thoroughly-appointed body, and then left with little or no soul.


Allen Ginsberg, asks, a century after the first publication of Leaves of Grass,

"America when will you be angelic?
When will you take off your clothes?
When will you look at yourself through the grave?"


The conversation is then taken up by the people who have brought you Levi's Blue Jeans since 1849, using Walt Whitman's voice from a cylindrical wax recording.

Amos, are you trying to turn this into a music thread?? You know Mom switches you for that! Of course, Bob Dylan reciting "Junior" Whitman does have a certain je ne sais quoi appeal to it. I think (Bob) Dylan doing Dylan (Thomas) might be interesting. Or maybe Dylan (Thomas) doing (Bob) Dylan. Difficult, I know, what with Dylan T. being dead and all, but I've heard that a good engineer can overcome all sorts of difficulties. If you overcome that, I'd also like to hear Shakespeare doing Shakespeare. Thanks!

So The Nazz look at this little cat with the bent frame and he say "What's the matter wit' you, baby?" And the little cat with the bent frame, he say "Well, my frame is bent, Nazz- it's been bent from in front."

Dear Stilly,
Come and take a virtual seat on my porch swing. The sprinklers are going and a fresh breeze is blowing from the northwest. It's probably about 80 degrees on this quiet breezy porch, and I have a whole pitcher full of icy cold raspberry lemonade. The raspberries were picked yesterday afternoon at the peak of freshness and the lemonade is just the right tartness. MOM's gone back in the house to take a nap, so we'll have the porch to ourselves. Did I mention humidity? It's about 7 percent right now, so it could be 20 degrees warmer and you still wouldn't feel sticky. I'll pour you a glass right now.

The porch swing and lemonade sound marvelous. Growing up in Western Washington we kids literally grazed in people's back yards. One old guy had put in an orchard when he and his wife were young, but after she was gone and he was elderly, we would creep through the brush and always head straight for the raspberries. Mmmmmmm!

Charles Henri Sanson, full title Chevalier Charles-Henri Sanson de Longval (February 15, 1739 - July 4, 1806) was the Royal Executioner of France in the court of King Louis XVI and High Executioner of the First French Republic. He administered capital punishment in the city of Paris for over forty years, and by his own hand executed nearly 3,000 people, including the King himself. Charles Henri Sanson was the fourth in a six-generation family dynasty of executioners. (Wikipedia)

Amos, just because I Know Things Which You Don't Know is no reason that either you or I have to lower ourselves to explain to the ignorant. Ignorance is curable, and the best way is to make the ignorant Look It Up. As D. H. Lawrence once wrote,

"The last time I slept with the Queen,
She smiled as I whispered, "Ich dien."

I'm quite certain that you would know immediately that "Ich dien" is the motto of the Prince of Wales as well as meaning "I serve" and thus becomes a pun of two or more layers -- and still more if you include the phallic feathers. But neither your time nor mine should be spent explaining everything. Let the others have the joy of discovery and erudition just as we did.

            And all the seas to sail upon,

            And all the people, every one
            Who lives upon the earth, to know.

            To know a few, and do a few,

Rapaire:

I am glad to hear your explanation for what I have hitherto conceived to be merely brutal antisocial showing off. And although I suspect your explation is in large part pure rationalization for a bad habit, I applaud that you undertook to at least come up with something approximationg a rational syntax. However, I maintain that in showering your audience intentionally with globs of relative mystery and obscurity, you are not communicating with them, but manipulating them; and these difference is even underscored by your explanation.

It would be more help, rather than betraying the use of a communication line to transmit anti-communication, to inform and educate. Thus, bringing about understanding as a more direct result of your own communication rather than essentially slamming people for not understanding. No-one, even Thee, is of such beadth and depth of exposure and thought as to have no missing data on the world. Why make this a condition of manipulation, inferiority, or punitive scolding? Be of more help and you will be more helpful.

"The Prince of Wales's feathers is the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales. It consists of three white feathers emerging from a gold coronet. A ribbon below the coronet bears the motto Ich dien (German for "I serve", a contraction of ich diene = ich dien' ). As well as being used in royal heraldry, the badge is sometimes used to symbolise Wales, particularly in Welsh rugby union and Welsh rugby league; however, its use as such is controversial and rejected by some Welsh nationalists as a symbol of the British monarchy rather than Wales.
A painted carving on the main gate of Oriel College, Oxford depicting the emblem of the Prince of WalesThe badge has no connection with the native Princes of Wales. It is thought to have originated with Edward, the Black Prince, the eldest son of Edward III of England. According to legend, the Black Prince obtained the arms from the blind John I of Bohemia, against whom he fought in the Battle of Crécy in 1346. After the battle, the prince went to the body of the dead king (whom he admired for his bravery) and took his helmet lined with ostrich feathers. The feathers and the dead king's motto made up the prince's new badge and came to be used by subsequent Princes of Wales
