"Officially, you're correct of course. But all the red tape in the world won't stop someone who wants to wiretap (or conduct other surveillance) from doing so. Look at what the News of the World in the UK did a few years ago via cellphone.…"

"'Bout time, Quatt. Too long since the last installment of the Farma Sutra (not to mention the Pilgrim's Regress)."

"Let me preface this by saying that I agree with this post. However, it should be borne in mind that just because the FBI says it has "no information" to back Trump's wiretap claim doesn't mean it couldn't have happened. (And…"

"I like dogs. Glad to know that greyhounds are still being adopted rather than destroyed after their "useful" life as racers are over. And I really like the idea of the party. Good on the lot of you."

"@AH -- same question I was going to ask. @Nana and Amy: Sigh. No matter how hard I try, I can't seem to irritate people enough to get them to post even nasty comments on stuff I write. Sad, innit?"

Mechanically Declined

Posted on March 4, 2017 at 3:22pm 7 Comments

     Call me mechanically declined.

     I don't mind -- I'm used to it. Although it's not true I can't screw in a lightbulb all by myself. I can, and there's about a 75-25 chance I won't break anything in the process.

     Earlier in the week, I noticed that the remote would only work if I was basically sitting within two feet of the door. Had to be the battery, I figured,…

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 4:00pm 16 Comments

“Canada is not merely a neighbour of Negroes.

     I'm going to be 70 this year, which is about twice the life span I anticipated once upon a time, given the nature of my wretched excesses back then.

     That was before I met the girl with the sunset hair, and life took a dramatic turn to the right.

     Imagine the sun going down in the west, beaming fiery red and shot through with gold. That's what her hair looked like the day I met her. For that matter, that's what she's like period.

     The other day, I stood in the…

Christmas in the Trenches

I wasn't sure how to tell you about my response to your Open Call.   So I left it here.
