There are days that I can smell the playa, while smack dab in the middle of Illinois... yeah, I do think the wind carries that far. I can see the road around Pyramid lake in my dreams and mind's eye because I have driven it so many times. I recall the sunsets and sunrises, lots of them... without 20...

re; Joel's first post- anyone care to boil down what that jackass safire's saying, or does my cursory scan of the first few words of each paragraph and my resulting impression pretty much capture it; "I'm Bush's man, what we're doing in Iraq needs doing, and here's how we're succeeding in doing it"...

April 7, 2004 OP-ED COLUMNIST Two-Front Insurgency By WILLIAM SAFIRE WASHINGTON — In light of about a dozen American combat deaths yesterday, we should keep in mind our historic bet: that given their freedom from a savage tyrant, the three groups that make up Iraq could, with our help, create a rudi...

I'm glad he's gone. Nirvana was the ZZ-Top of Grunge (Seattle/Whatever) bands. Every song sounded the same. Unintelligably mumbled lyrics. Uninspiring music. Best thing to come out of that band was Weird Al's parody of them. And that's not saying much. However the worst thing he ever did was kill h...

I also do not believe that any rule has intrinsic value, it only has subjective value which will vary according to the perceiver. We're moving from politics to philosophy here, but let me just say: Yes. Exactly. The notion of intrinsic value is an attempt to attribute objective reality to purely su...

April 1, 2004 OP-ED COLUMNIST What's That Sound? By THOMAS L.
