NOT NEWS – To All My Fans In China


Did you have a chance to look at the Zeeeko cartoons that Alex did? The Gordon Ramsay one? On Youtube, that got more than 3,000,000 hits in one week.  My posting of it got 25.

That’s the way it is, starting up the blog again. A couple of years ago, after I had been doing it dependably for a while, I could count on 50 or 60 reads and, on occasion, a post would get a couple of hundred hits. Last week, well, let’s say the Zeeeko post was my most popular.

On the other hand, four views last week came from France, two from Finland, one from Germany and one from China. Amazing, right? How does that happen? What are they googling that brings them here?

An expatriate in Hong Kong checking Glenda Jackson’s reviews or maybe a Manchurian teen with a love for animation who hacked past the Chinese firewall to become part of an international community of toon lovers? Do the Finns all take antidepressant medications resulting in trembling legs? Perhaps that explains Finland toppipng the list of the worlds happiest countries? They’re all doped up!

Notwithstanding their rep, I’ve always found the French open and friendly.  I think somewhere I heard that they’re very fond of American Jews there. Maybe that’s what brings them here (I may be misremembering that). [This is my wisdom on the French and Jews: In France, they don’t like Jews but they are completely accepting of any individual Jew;  In the USA, everyone claims to be unprejudiced towards the Jews but they’d just as soon not have to encounter or deal with or vote for one.]

Whoever you all are (and I recognize that most readers are my friends and family), I thank you.  We few, we happy few, we band of brothers and sisters – I wouldn’t do it if you weren’t there. I’m very grateful.

The Jonathan Demme film Handle with Care, begins and ends with the voice of Candy Clark (whose persona, Electra, trolls the CB radio waves every spare moment, it being 1977) whispering in the dark, anonymously, to a trucker known only by his handle,  “There are a lot of voices out there, but yours is different.”

    For the 25th time this year, a prisoner was executed in the united states.
    But the efforts to stave off this execution were a few things more creative than a large
    amount. Richard Cooey, merely arrested at 19 for killing and
    raping two college students in Ohio, was executed at 10 a.m Ohio time this morning, based on the text CNN.
    But the execution came after Richard Cooey’s lawyers failed to obstruct the execution on simple grounds.
    The grounds were that Richard Cooey was too overweight to be killed humanly.

    Cooper stood a schedule conflict and wasn’t there to participate in the celebration at the Christ
    Lutheran Church on Haywood Road.

    On the opposite hand, when the U.S. Constitution is the
    greatest law, then government-executive, legislative, or judicial-may deny or redefine life, liberty,

    If the people of America elect to redefine life, they may do so by political election. If the scr888 agent topup of the U .
    s citizens rules that prayer in schools and also Ten Commandments is regarding banned from government facilities, then so be thought.
    If the U. S. Constitution is above God’s law, then voting Americans may
    rule for or nullify God’s law, with impunity.

    Houston Municipal Courts, found here, handle city (municipal means
    city or local town) issues such as parking, speeding, and red light camera tickets.

    While Ricci and his fellow firefighters may enjoy a the
    Supreme court ruling, workouts obvious that they were not pleased with the idea of Sotomayor sitting on the bench
    of really court that more than ruled her. .
