I've given up (for now) on Collected Stories by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez. His style is just too far over my head. I'm reluctant to even go near Isabel Allende's The House of the Spirits.

I love prophets, so I recommend Channel Zero by Brian Wood. This is a fictional ad from the fictional world in the story where Church and State run the media.

Yes, it took me a week to recover from the par-tay, partly because of what I'll call "The Blue-State Blues," in this case, the amount of static and hassle to get your car registered and inspected in the state of New York. Okay, I admit, it wasn't really "static and hassle" except in comparison with what you have to go through in Ohio, which is (outside of three counties) nothing. So long as the lights work and you don't have your car looking like something out of Mad Max, you're not going to have any problems.

Ah, the Libertarian diatribes that will spill out of someone who's under the weather to begin with, and had a bout of insomnia the night before. It's horrible, I tell you.

Here's something interesting that I didn't notice until recently. The next time you watch an episode of Law & Order, any of them, pay close attention to the opening credits after the title sequence runs. Count how many people are credited as a "producer" of one sort or another.

Everything is a weapon.

Everything.

There is no...number 6.

I beg to differ - it WAS static and hassle - to the tune of $180 for registration, license, and inspection. But in the end, at least we know our car and every other car on the road here isn't a death trap spewing gallons of toxic substances (such as many vehicles I was unlucky enough to come across in Ohio).

it was actually first released in 1997, in response to Rudy Guliani's running of NYC.
