Sunday Funnies


One event transcended all others last week and that was the death Thursday of Senator Edward Kennedy. The so-called Kennedy dynasty lost it's last living member, something not lost on America's editorial cartoonists...

subtorp77: Say what you will about the Kennedy "dynasty" - and there are a variety of opinions - but when I think of the 3 Kennedy brothers I think of how they eptitomize tragedy.

dizzblnd: Yeah that was a good one.

Quirks: I wonder if heaven's where he ended up?
With all the media focus on Ted Kennedy, I have to admit I've watched as little as possible. But for those who have been keeping track, has anyone mentioned the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick? You know...where he ran the car off the bridge into the water, saved himself, went home, and failed to report the incident until her body was found the next day?

I'm just wondering.

Frank: And for years after it sent shivers up partygoers spines when someone said "Need a lift?"

I watched his burial ceremony. Apparently a water break delayed the burial for two hours. Hence, it was conducted in the dark. Pitch dark. The TV camera had nowhere to focus except to pan to distant scenes and the lightning from an incoming storm.

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
