Recently I said goodbye to a friend who left San Francisco for greener pasture. We have been friends for many years and it was sad to see her go.

Photo: President Bush and President-Elect Obama meet in the Oval Office on November 10, 2008.  From Obama's Wikipedia page.   This isn't exactly a political rant, so stay with me if you felt like leaving because of that.  It's more of a plea, I guess.   There are so many...

Kafka was well versed in the technical innovations of his day. His employment consisted of dealing with injuries to workers, so he knew his industry. Not doubt (so I like to think) many of the letters he wrote (and I have read) travelled through this device.    The Prague Pneumatic Post by Sam...

Moonrat at Editorial Ass defines how dreary these publishing times are (and she'll even send you elsewhere for more info). Frankly, I'm not sure what to make of all of it. I've been spouting leftist propaganda (my previous post, apparently), but outside of that, I'm lost. I am sincerely questioning...

Hold on to your electric bill ... Barack Obama is at it again. I can not believe that these truthful revelations from Barack Obama may have some who voted early asking, CAN I HAVE MY VOTE BACK? Imagine if John McCain had whispered somewhere that he was willing to bankrupt a major industry? Would...
