The last sentence of this, from JLA: Classified, really gets at the essence of super heroics, I've always thought. (I turned it up browsing images of Frank Miller's work over the decades, then digressed into stuff Grant Morrison's written to clear my palate.)

Marillion are really darned good even when not being epically depressing, too. :)

Cashin, Carrie. Cashin Carrie was created by Theodore Tinsley (Bulldog Black, Major John T. Lacy, Jerry Tracy) and appeared in forty-four stories in Crime Busters and Street & Smith’s Mystery Magazine from 1937 to 1943, beginning with “White Elephant” (Crime Busters, Nov. 1937). Carrie Cashin is the senior partner in the Cash and Carry Detective Agency. The firm’s junior partner is Cashin’s “stooge" Aleck Burton. Burton is neither as bright nor as brave as Cashin, but he pretends to be the head of the Agency, so that clients with a suspicion against women detectives would be willing to hire the Agency. (This was Cashin’s idea). Burton brings broad shoulders and a handsome face to cases, while Cashin is the one who solves the cases and brings home the money. Cashin is smart, pretty, and brave, although her approach to detection relies on her physical prowess far more than her intellectual ability. Cashin is hard-boiled and willing to break the law if it will help a client.

So there I was this afternoon, at the desk as usual, when +Frances Acheson called to tell me I needed to step outside right then. Having long since learned my lesson about recommendations like that coming from her, I did. And therefore I got to see this.

This kind of thing is just amazing.

A view from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on April 8, 2015, catches sight of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover passing through a valley called "Artist's Drive" on the lower slope of Mount Sharp.

Makes me wish I could have stayed the course in Planetary Sciences rather than escaping to the Dot-Com Gold Rush.

This is your occasional reminder that Marillion are still really darned good.

Thanks for posting these Flint essays. It's good to see good sense and careful thought on this stuff. The "Romance Irrelevance" point is a particularly good one, I think.

Here is another essay on the subject, which goes in a different, but interesting direction re:the Puppy mindset: http://www.jacobclifton.com/?m=1

+Frances Acheson took Montano and me to the vet while they did the alarm testing. Um, the vets gave medical attention to Montano but not me, I was just there as his owner. To absolutely no surprise on Frances's and my part, he had to be sedated for blood draw and examination, but vet took it in stride and says that my cat seems to be in really good shape for the senior cat he is. (I got him in 2001, and the humane society and vet agreed that he was likely about a year old when I got him.) Now we're back in, and he's vegging at the foot of the bed, one of his favorite places.

It appears I chose his name well! It took several tries to get enough blood drawn from him - for a cat his size, he apparently has surprisingly small veins. The vampire legacy will out, I guess.

Now to rest some myself.

It'd be nice if all our cats could find some middle ground.

Montano doesn't yet know he could use your good wishes today, but he could. This is the day of the annual fire alarm testing for the apartment building. The alarms are VERY LOUD +Frances Acheson is coming over, and she will whisk us away for a while when the testing starts, but there'll still be some VERY LOUD blaring, and it just isn't his favorite thing. When we're back and settled in again, he will demand - and get - some extra cuddles and treats.

I've seen little to contradict Marshall McLuhan's basic observation that technology doesn't change us so much as magnify us =)

On April 25, 1990, the world—the Universe—changed. That was the day the crew of STS-31 deployed the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit. This magnificent observatory has a special place in my heart. When it launched I was in graduate school in astronomy, and had just received my master’s degree. I...
