I'd like to say I can't relate to the first one, but...wait, gotta go, Facebook is updating on my phone. I'll talk to you later, John...on Facebook, of course.

Amazing how it's taken over our lives, isn't it?

It sure demonstrated the worst in the media. The coverage was atrocious.

I watched CNN and finally had to turn it off. The coverage was terrible, full of stupid speculation and what not. In the absence of any real developments they seemed to make up their own story.

The week was so bizarre, Indigo. Really makes one wonder.

I, too, am glad that so many people, you included, have chosen to focus on the heroes of the situation. That is what is needed.

Leave the weenies out of the publicity.

Let them rot in their buns.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency.

Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
