The Cosmic Significance of Covered Parking

Thursday, June 30th, 2005

I received a very important piece of mail today, and I can’t really tell you about it — except to say that it’s confirmation of the personal news I received a few weeks ago. I have reason to be very happy. At the same time, the universe is sending me signs. I can allow myself […]

Random Notes

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

Without any asssistance from me, Rich Johnston has done some further reporting on the Omega the Unknown situation. Wherever his information is coming from, it’s pretty good. You can read his current column here. He’s dug up a little more dirt on the Ultraverse matter, too. On the Yahoo Howard the Duck group, Derek Anderson […]

Driving around Las Vegas in the summer in a car without air conditioning is not pleasant. Too irritated to write about much of anything else today. Something less bitchy t0morrow, I hope. | Karl Rove is a liar

So When Does the Whining Stop?

Saturday, June 25th, 2005

When does the whining stop? Why do crybaby conservatives and fundamentalist Christians still feel so put-upon? What else do they need? Do all the blue people […]

The American Dream of Home Usurpership

Friday, June 24th, 2005

The liberals on the Supreme Court of the United States should be ashamed of themselves for their majority decision in the New London, Connecticut eminent domain case. I’m ashamed to say I’m in complete agreement with Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas on a court decision — ashamed because this should have been a no-brainer for […]

Town Without Pithy

Friday, June 24th, 2005

No time for a long, pithy post tonight, but one quick reminder: If you decide to display one of the Omega the Unknown Informational Banners on your blog or web page, please leave a comment with your URL, so I can add your page to my link list. Major pith tomorrow.

Bush II

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

(Or III, I guess, if you count dad.) Has anyone else noticed that the time since our Proxident’s second inauguration has borne a strong resemblance to the period after his *first* inauguration? I think we’re now seeing what the first Bush administration would have looked like *without* 9-11. Apart from the rampant lies, the blatant […]

A Few More Words About Depression

Monday, June 20th, 2005

I may have lent the wrong impression with my earlier posts about depression. Let me clarify a few things. Depression has always been a problem for me, but some times have been better and others worse. It’s mostly been varying degrees of worse since the late 1980s. Sometimes my creative focus has been more clouded, […]
