Heaven is an amusement park that never closes — Stale cotton candy for all eternity? No thanks.

The Silver Thief — Interesting true crime article, and character study.

Writing for money — A review of a book about Mark Twain and the economics of being an author.

Shorpy with a fascinating photo of a fortune teller — A character study in one frame.

Squaring the many sides of John McCain — Mmm. Straight Talk Express my ass.

Me on Hillary and Obama — At least he didn't follow her one-candidate race to the bottom.
Also, thanks to whoever sent me the virtual balloons, and my thanks also to jeffsoesbe for the CDs.

what i get from that review of twain's life is that he was a really bad businessman. which really doesn't square with what the times columnist was trying to say.

I thought the map of Heaven was (deliberately) hilarious. Note that the crowds outside the Damned Viewer are the thickest in the whole park.

Speaking of sending things, if I wanted to send you something (and no it is not some unsolicited manuscript), would I use the 42611 Box address? It is just unlikely that I will get to the Flying Pie this weekend unless my little girl starts feeling better (she is really sick).

my thanks also to jeffsoesbe for the CDs.

You're very welcome! It was a little bit of "feel better", a little bit of "happy birthday" and a lot of "thanks for all you do for beginning writers such as myself". Along with a dash of "check out your sibling from an alternate universe, aka Keith Jones of the Tinkers".

Have a great JayCon!
