Bonus Blog May 5, 2004
Robert Ray has re-configured the schematic (11:35 am) and the Tap Duncan piece is back in the issue. This is so typical of the magazine world, in one minute, out the next. It reminds me of a Mark Twain comment about weather in San Francisco to the effect that if you don’t like the weather right now, stick around for fifteen minutes and see if you like that weather. It will be changing dramatically. Well, I completely ruined that quote, which reminds me of another Twain quote, “Choosing the right word is the difference between lightning and lightning bug.”

Just got the new English version of Esquire magazine. Bob Brink brings it in for me. On the cover is a tag line: “Why Are the Germans So Kinky?” How can you not find that article and want to read it? On the other hand, I don’t think I’ll be reading the “Exclusive Interview with Michael Howard, the man who could make you vote Tory.” Ha.

“Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.”
—Winston Churchill
