E-mail subject line of the day

Blind Date at the Washington Moose!

Gee, the prospect sets you all a-tingle, doesn't it?

Actually, Blind Date is a local four-piece band that plays country, southern rock and classic rock. I heard them a couple times at the Baltimore House in Pleasant Hills, and they're a great bunch of guys. I have a great deal of empathy for Rod the keyboardist and bass guitarist Bobby G, who both also perform contemporary Christian music every Sunday morning in their churches' praise bands. I run the sound for my church's band, which means when I come rolling in on Sunday morning I find it's easier to just stay awake than try to catch a couple hours sleep before the 8:30 a.m. service. (I tell my minister I'm doing live sound mixing research.) I'm always amazed at the number of Methodists I find in bars on Saturday night. Even more surprising is the number who manage to make it to church the next morning...

Quotes for Aunt and Uncle Day

There have been too many books in which some young man is looking forward, backward or sideways in anger. Or in which some Southern youth is being chased through the magnolia bushes by his aunt. She catches him on page 28 with horrid results.
-Bennett Cerf

Put yourself in Hamlet's shoes. Suppose you were a prince, and you came back from college to discover that your uncle had murdered your father and married your mother, and you fell in love with a beautiful girl and mistakenly murdered her father, and then she went crazy and drowned herself. What would you do? Go back for a masters?
-Art Buchwald

George Washington's brother was the uncle of our country.
-George Carlin

Hollywood story of the day

Clerks II Director to 'GMA' Critic: 'Kiss My A--. Literally.'

It all began with an innocent reference to donkey sex. Writer-director Kevin Smith and Good Morning America's Joel Siegel traded insults after the film critic stormed out of a Clerks II screening, bellowing to the audience, "This is the first movie I've walked out on in 30 f---ing years!" (A line about bestiality set him off.) Smith objected on his Web site-not because Siegel left, but because he didn't go quietly. Siegel apologized.

Reached through his publicist, the donkey declined to comment.
-Devin Gordon

Observation of the day

From Zay Smith's QT column in the Chicago Sun Times:

A proposition to discard touch-screen voting machines that are especially susceptible to fraud because they leave no paper trail, replacing them with paper ballots counted by an optical scanner, will be put before voters in 15 Florida counties this fall, who will vote yes or no on touch-screen voting machines that are especially susceptible to fraud because they leave no paper trail.

Quote of the day

My grandmother has a bumper sticker that says, "Sexy Senior Citizen." You don't want to think of your grandmother that way, do you? Out entering wet shawl contests. Makes you wonder where she got that dollar she gave you for her birthday.
-(my source says Andy Rooney, but I doubt that. Andy Rooney's grandmother would be- what? 115?)

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
