Quote of the day

Today's public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can't read them, either.

If figures of speech based on sport and fornication were suddenly banned, American corporate communication would be reduced to pure mathematics.

Quote of the day

"I want you to get mad about the current state of affairs. I want you to get so mad that you use your new degree and your common sense to kick America off dead center. A little righteous anger really brings out the best in the American personality.

Our nation was born when 56 patriots got mad enough to sign the Declaration of Independence. We put a man on the moon because Sputnik made us mad at being number two in space. Getting mad in a constructive way is good for the soul- and the country.
-Lee J. Iacocca (Commencement Address)

Are we there yet?


We're heading east for Thanksgiving dinner with Cindy's family, but first we have to drop off all seven shelties at South Hills Pet Resort. Fortunately, the pups love the place. Deja, our oldest female and canine queen of the household, is not shy about expressing her displeasure if she's somewhere other than where she wants to be. When we arrive at the kennel, Her Majesty makes a beeline up the steps and right into the office. Believe me, that's a ringing endorsement.

And yes, even with small dogs and a big vehicle, it's like riding in a furry clown car. The beauty with the big smile in the middle of the photo is Misty, a former agility star. (Misty's full name is "Michelle's Cinnamon Mist." Michelle is Cindy's youngest, now at Penn State.) Sasha's behind her, and on the right is Lucy, whose function is to bark at changes in barometric pressure, light levels, passing clouds, and similar significant events, a job she does with unfailing enthusiasm. And frequency.

Have a good holiday, all!

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...
