RFTS: That was nice about the Redtail yesterday. Central Ohio, far from the flyways, seemed like a bird-desert when I was growing up there. Cleveland may be better because of the lake, but I'd think Eastern Shore spoiled you for Ohio. I see many more species without looking hard in Chicago, on the Great Lakes flyway, than in fields and forests--sorry for the yizchor echo, it just came out--when I was a kid.

Ah! Maybe because we didn't actually live on the Eastern Shore in Maryland, but on the outskirts of DC, the bird situation didn't seem that noticeably stellar. Alternately, I'm just oblivious. Here we do at least get a lot of Canada geese, cardinals, and all manner of little grey and brown birdies that I can't identify. I often see a hawk circling overhead, but never close like this.

Meanwhile, I see that the awesome New York Review of Books Classics imprint is reprinting T. H. White's The Goshawk.

Face it, B., his work is more important to him than you are.

My weka-minded neighbor's girlfriend resented his job and got him to quit, and then ditched him when he went bankrupt. There's a reason that the term "psycho bitch" was invented. (B herself, as I've multiply explained, is basically wholesome, and earnest to a fault.)

Michael, the nicest cotton underthings I've ever experienced are by Hanro. They don't look all that spiffy, but they're softer than anything and if treated nicely, last forever. (I have a thirteen year-old cotton camisole from them: one or two holes, but the fabric hasn't budged or faded.) Expensive as all hell, though.

The Physicians make the galls and stones in the heads of Carps to be very medicinable; but 'tis not to be doubted but that in Italy they make great profit of the Spawn of Carps, by selling it to the Jewes, who make it into red Caviare, the Jewes not being by their Law admitted to eat of Caviare made of the Sturgion, that being a Fish that wants scales, and (as may appear in Levit. 11) by them to be reputed unclean.

362: but there's only two of the former and several hundred million of the latter.

Without the Harry Potter people, global warming would not be a problem, let me tell you that. The rest of us could wander happily through a more open, less crowded, freer world.

Considering homicide by carp is all I'm saying.

There's no shame in being a carp-joke person, Hamilton. It's difficult, I know, and there are many who won't understand. But once you admit it to yourself, you'll feel a hundred pounds lighter. And one day, you'll even be proud of it.

366: You can't be neutral in a clash between Good and Evil, Hamilton. If you're not for the carp-joke people, you're against them.

Apparently not. Jesus, people, can you not drum up arguments for yourselves? It's not like we agree on everything: I remember the halcyon days of knife-fights over tucking-protocol. Here's a controversial proposal: you are all craven pussies who couldn't start a fight in a double-booked dome of the rock.
