Quote of the day

Barack Obama said if he becomes president he will replace the White House bowling alley because it's something he would never use. Yeah, apparently, this is the same reason President Bush got rid of the White House library.

Mind-boggling quote of the day

Torture "is basically subject to perception," CIA counterterrorism lawyer Jonathan Fredman told a group of military and intelligence officials gathered at the U.S.-run detention camp in Cuba on Oct. 2, 2002, according to minutes of the meeting. "If the detainee dies, you're doing it wrong."

Peas in a pod...

This is another one of those days that sort of shakes my faith in astrology.

Those kindred souls born today include Blaise Pascal, Guy Lombardo, Lou Gehrig, Abe Fortas, Lester Flatt, Louis Jordan, Pauline Kael, Niels Bohr, Gena Rowlands, Salman Rushdie, Phylicia Rashad, Kathleen Turner and Paula Abdul, all born under the masculine, positive, mutable air sign of Gemini.

But the most important birthday today is,
of course, that of Harry Moses Horwitz:

Roger Ebert, (b. 6/18/1942)

Doing research on the Web is like using a library assembled piecemeal by pack rats and vandalized nightly.

Eating responsibly at McDonald's is like going to a strip club for the iced tea.

Never marry anyone you could not sit next to during a three-day bus trip.

Quotes of the day

Mario Cuomo, b. June 15, 1932:

The price of seeking to force our beliefs on others is that someday they might force their beliefs on us.

The vice presidency is a neglected positive. It is like the word "inept." Nobody ever says "ept."

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...
