old friends, bookends


oh joy, smoog has a diptionary (and Merriam and Webster can roll over in their graves)... I miss smoog as much as anybody when the entries aren't coming... and every time I see a new one I say the same thing, may they come and come...

as you might notice, I've been rambling a lot of late... in fact, this very entry feels incomplete even as I scan through it and insert this line to prepare you for the possibility, maybe even probability of additional added lines at some future time... too much time on my hands, not enough motivation (or local friends) to get me out and about (of course I said no to the movies with Berry and other work friends, dinner and bolwing with Helena and others, and car shopping with Rasputin, but that's besides the point... I saved movie and relaxed and burned many mp3s and enjoyed some good times with myself and lots of words on the web and music)... sometimes I just want my babbling time...

anyway, another great thing about a smoog update is I get reminded how many great people read smoog and can kick myself for not visiting dangerspouse more often... if only to pick up more linguistic tid bits (how many of you realized that Tulsa spelled backwards is a slut?... no offense to the good people of Tulsa, of course... which got me to thinking, is there a town called Tilsa in the world?... but that's besides the point) or culinary tips (for they have an amazing menu at the world famous Dangerhouse), or just for some good times in New Jersey with old friends from another life...

and speaking of old friends from another life, I just emailed the effervescent Ladee Leroy to let her know her astute reasoning and literary cleverness (and beautiful heart) is/are missed... everybody should...

and ok, so she might dance like a fluttering wildebeest, but where's the compassion, man?... I refer to (more respectfully than it may appear), Terry Schiavo... and I am wondering what kind of insurance and medical and legal system we have in this country... a person is injured, the spouse receives insurance money, and the insurance money is used to hire lawyers to try to get a judge to legally kill the person injured?... there must be details I am missing, but why wasn't the money spent on medical care like physical and rehabilitation therapy... the body is a pretty amazing thing... it heals in it's own time... why fight that healing process and call it love... or even legal?...

so I got to thinking... cryogenics... it's got to be cheaper than decades of life support machines and the surviving spouse can get on with his getting it on with whomever he chooses... this would eliminate spousal abuse after death, or near death, and also save us all money on insurance rates...

further thinking lead me to think that using the life support justification would mean Christopher Reeves and others who could not breath on their own should not be provided artificial breathing machines... should an amputee not be provided with an artificial limb?... should we stop doing heart and kidney and organ transplants?... medical science has the means to keep people alive today in ways never dreamed of a hundred years ago, so when do we have the right to say one person should receive the medical care that might keep them alive until another "miracle" breakthrough is made and another person should not receive the benefits of modern medical care?... in twenty years, there may be medical treatments to stimulate brain cells to recover functioning for brain damaged people... does any person not deserve the chance to live long enough to be cured?...

alas, humanity, how selfish can we be?...

moving right along in my mind (selfishly, no doubt), one of these days I hope to have the time to be bored enough to take a few hundred personality tests and other such survey stuff and put together a section of pages that provide you all with the detailed results of the careful analysis of me... until then, I guess you will just have to guess...

feel free to read other entries before your final guess...

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...

you know that box to the right on the dland entry page called recent public entries?... what do the asterisks mean?... and the bold?...
