It’s finally over for Terri Schiavo. Dubya has a lot of nerve talking about a “culture of life” when he killed so many people as governor and even went so far as to mock the condemned. What a hypocrite. I … Continue reading
Yay me. I have updated my BookLog. Hooray for lunch break at work.
The Phantom of the Opera
by Gaston Leroux, translated by Lowell Bair I had almost forgotten what a great book this is. Written to look like it’s full of historical fact, it’s really well done. Bravo! The translation was great, too – fluid, easy-to-read, and … Continue reading

I’m considering rehauling my site – it’s been several years since I weeded out the old bits I no longer use and refurbed the bits I wanted to keep. I’m figuring to delete any section I don’t have a major … Continue reading
