1439: Trenestheses
have heard it said (especially in courtrooms) that some things must be proven
beyond a reasonable doubt. But did you ever wonder why the word reasonable was so necessary in that formula?
The answer, I think, is that there are two kinds of proof –proof b...

1438: Salient Cubic Inn
The following entry is almost like a mix-tape. Some of the
paragraphs are entirely new, while others have been rescued from a file cabinet
marked, Words Which I Wrote Once, But Didn’t Feel Like Publishing At The Time . The
result, in my opinion, is almost l...

1437: The White Circle
You have heard
it said, ‘When God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.’ But I am
engaged, presently, in a much more curious switcheroo than that – namely, that

1431: The Cereal Submarine
In some movies (likely a cartoon for kids, but in some very serious productions as well), there is a character who is an obvious liar. Our heroes trust them (despite the flowing bad-guy capes and evil mustaches) leaving us to ask, 'Why in Thunder would any ...

1430: Mack Bisclaveret
Some of the Funniest People I've Ever Known: 1. A former employer of a family member. He was like the king in some anachronistic medieval comedy (so determined to secure his Control and power, that he filled his castle with a comedy of errors). 2. An estran...
