BP/Halliburton are doing what Enron did last decade — fuck up the works, show government as a failing concern, and profit from the fallout.

No, and very good point.

Or is it just me? Good thing I always have a short skirt handy. (Gil Elvgren found a surprising number of circumstances in everyday life in which skirts must be lifted. Much more so than the actual wearers of skirts ever find, I am sure.)

Indyanna–I’m sure you’re right that the Rockies will one day be worn down to nubbins, like the Appalachians. But none of us will be around to have to see that, I am sure!

And CPP: Let’s hope that neither your wife nor I ever have to face a day without the HK.

I decided that maybe she was shielding her face from the smoke blowing her way? It’s hard to figure out!

Fanning the fire?

(warm and lovely). They’re also tanking “Law and Order,” which I’m given to understand is a tv crime show set in New York City, in favor of a version that will be set in LA. So the original will remain forever tied with “Gunsmoke” for the longest-running series in some thematic or analytical category. Agreed on the Gulf. The situation seems nuts and has descended to all-spin all the time among all parties. My geology teacher once said that the “next” Rocky Mountains are going to arise out of the Gulf of Mexico, by which time the Rockies will have been reduced to worn-down nubs, sort of like the Appalachians today (sorry, Historiann). But that we should probably not wait around to see this happen.

PhysioWife is also all up in arms about Hello Kitty. Did you take a look at that fucked-up character that is currently #1 in Japan? It’s a fucking jam-filled pastry!
