I utter to myself, “Your soul is Rome but your hopes are Pompei.” Time has done to my face what the Internet has done to human decency. I descend the stairs noting that 100 years has made them the deepest conceivable brown. “It smells like an old trumpet…

An old man's adventures at the park - another 150 word opus.

My wife’s grandfather was a Bracero from Mexico in the ’50s. He’s a tough and charming man, 94, lives alone with some paid help afternoons. Last month he got one of his grandkids’ kids a job at McDonalds. He told them they should hire the kid, he bought…

Coheed arrives at O'Shannon too late to pick up the chairs, but he meets some writers and receives a message.

[Episode Two of Adventures in Litter Bay]   After leaving Jane’s, Coheed drives east out of the Shore and heads for O’Shannon. He’s late for his appointment — by hours, thanks to his ex-wife — but screw it. How often does he get a chance to be with a…

Get yer tissues handy.
Kings coach Darryl Sutter, the father of a son with Down syndrome, has quietly made connections with parents and children in similar circumstances. The usually reserved Sutter opens up to the Star about his son Christopher.

Yeah, this always bummed me out about O'Bummer -- the dismantling of OFA moments after winning the election.

On the brightside -- maxspeak is blogging again.
I don't think I'm naive about the inflexibility of the political system, as far as its congeniality towards progressive policies goes. I have worked in and

ALB, Ep.03: Coheed Is Awakened Early, rises to investigate, and despite a hangover, ventures forth to bring quiet.

[Episode Three of Adventures in Litter Bay] Coheed was awakened by the sound of children’s voices rising up from the park below his one bedroom apartment. “Lemonade Lemonade Lemonade!” they yelled. “Lemonade Lemonayyde Lemonade,” came their little boys’…

Storyweek.com's idea for a decent Internet age rom-com you should totally share with your Hollywood producer friends.

We read on the Internet the other day that Rom Coms were dead.  Maybe so! None of us here watch many movies that aren’t Alien(s) or don’t have Russell Crowe in them, so we don’t know. But it reminded us of a thought we had elsewhere about an Internet…

Introduction
“Wealth, therefore, is ‘The possession of the valuable by the valiant’; and in considering it as a power existing in a nation, the two elements, the value of the thing, and the valour of its possessor, must be estimated together. Whence it appears that many of the persons commonly considered wealthy, are in reality no more wealthy than the locks of their own strong boxes are, they being inherently and eternally incapable of wealth; and operating for the nation, in an economical point of view, either as pools of dead water, and eddies in a stream (which, so long as the stream flows, are useless, or serve only to drown people, but may become of importance in a state of stagnation should the stream dry); or else, as dams in a river, of which the ultimate service depends not on the dam, but the miller; or else, as mere accidental stays and impediments, acting not as wealth, but (for we ought to have a correspondent term) as ‘illth,’ causing various devastation and trouble around them in all directions; or lastly, act not at all, but are merely animated conditions of delay, (no use being possible of anything they have until they are dead,) in which last condition they are nevertheless often useful as delays, and ‘impedimenta,’ …” [John Ruskin]
