...Intermission...



"By God! Don't you see that all these Ousamas Bin Ladens consider themselves authorized to kill you and your children because you drink alcohol, because you don't grow the long beard and refuse the chador or the burkah, because you go to the theater and to the movies, because you love music and to sing a song, because you dance and watch television, because you wear the miniskirt or the shorts, because on the beach and by the swimming pool you sunbathe almost naked or naked, because you make love when you want and with whom you want, or because you don't believe in God?!? I am an atheist, thank God. And I have no intention of being punished for this by retrograde bigots who, instead of contributing to the improvement of humanity, salaam and squawk prayers five times a day."  - Oriana Fallaci - 'The Rage and the Pride'

'Envelope' of the Month - November 2016



Wow! This was in my mailbox when I looked on the way home from work today.Look at that Mr Spock stamp! Look how MANY stamps there are! It's not even an envelope, but what appears to be a zine, folded and stapled, and stamped and addressed. I don't even know who it's from! What a Great Mail Day! [I'll continue this after I've found out what it is and who it's from...]

[Next day... It's a new issue of Les Carnets de Rastapopoulos! From Canadian Rob! Thanks Rob! review coming right up...]
