WHY THIS BLOG SUPPORTS THE DEATH PENALTY

Because, darn it, some cases demand it.

THAT WAS NO "STUNT"

That was a Florida motorist.

(Thanks to Benjamin Studtmann)

IS THERE A SAUDI EXPRESSION EQUIVALENT TO "CUTTING OFF YOUR NOSE TO SPITE YOUR FACE"?

Because if so, this guy is going to be hearing it.

(Thanks to Dan Postma)

Here's a fun site from some fun people.

BOOK TOUR UPDATE

Today I am flogging in Seattle. Tonight at 7 I'll be at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. Presumably there will be nobody there who's running for governor of California. Although you never know.

GUY SAFETY ADVISORY

Do not discuss certain topics while operating trains.

BOOK TOUR UPDATE

Today I will be flogging around San Francisco (a lot of flogging goes on in San Francisco) and tonight I'll be at Book Passage in Corte Madera at 7. No word yet on whether Trek Thunder Kelly will attend.

CALIFORNIA GUBERNATORIALHOOD UPDATE

At the booksiging at Kepler's in Menlo Park last night -- and thanks to the folks who came -- an alert Californian named Shannon handed me a list of statements supplied by candidates for governor. One of the candidates, running as an independent, is "Trek Thunder Kelly." Here is Trek Thunder Kelly's statement:

Dear Voters, Please vote for me, thus breaking the Seventh Seal and incurring Armageddon. I will legalize drugs, gambling and prostitution so they may be taxed and regulated, the funds derived would subsidize the deficit, education and the environment. I believe in peaceful resolutions backed by a strong military; I don't care who you marry or have sex with.

And people say there are no serious candidates.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING

And we're sure somebody on your list would love to receive the story of Nikola Tesla told entirely in Morse code.

(Thanks to Lane Closure)

ATTENTION, DECEASED PEOPLE

A friend and I were discussing how she could obtain a relative's death certificate. I suggested she try contacting the county in which the death was registered and ordering a certificate from them. To test my theory, I checked the website for Multnomah County, Oregon (link below) where I found this puzzling statement: "... If you need a certified copy of your death certificate, you should contact the Certification Unit of the Oregon Center for Health Statistics. " https://www.co.multnomah.or.us/dbcs/FREDS/records/reference.shtml Emily Rampton Portland, Oregon

BOOK TOUR UPDATE

Thanks to everybody who came out to Books and Books in Coral Gables last night; there was a nice turnout, and only limited shooting. Today I'm traveling to (why not?) California, and will be flogging my book at 5 p.m. tonight at Kepler's in Menlo Park. I assume that there will also be California gubernatorial candidates on hand, in case anybody needs to hear their views on anything.

BRA BALL ADVISORY

Dave: I am writing in regard�to an article you posted on your blog this morning.� I went to the Bra Ball website that was posted yesterday and read all about Emily Duffy's bra ball.� After reading the Bra Ball article that you posted this morning, I wanted to�learn more�about Ron Nicolino's bra ball, in an effort to remain "fair and balanced" on the whole bra ball issue.� Therefore, I clicked on the link at the bottom of the article,�and oh,�what a surprise!� Let me just say that Mr. Nicolino certainly has an interesting project going.� Perhaps he uses the bras of the women pictured after they rip them off in a frenzy of passion? Anyway, just thought I'd warn my fellow readers about the porn link. Beth S.
Thank you, Beth S. This blog assumes your fellow readers will govern themselves accordingly.

BOOK TOUR UPDATE

I'm home for one day and flogging my book tonight at 8 at my excellent local Coral Gables bookstore, Books and Books, where they sell books and beer, so there is really no reason to ever leave.

THIS IS VERY BAD, WE THINK

It turns out there are two of them (bra balls, that is), and there is, needless to say, a legal controversy.

In a related development brought to this blog's attention by Christina Stephens, somebody has developed a very tasteless and bad and wrong game that this blog would not consider linking to.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION

Be honest: Do you actually care who the next governor of California is? Do you even care if California has a governor?

Neither does this blog. Thank you.

BOOK TOUR ADVISORY

I am flogging in Chicago today and will appear tonight at 7 at Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois. I will be the one with the giant hollow spaces where normal people have eyes.

TELEMARKETER UPDATE

This blog is aware that there are new developments in the telemarketers story. This blog will monitor the situation and take action in the form of a column that will no doubt be wildly out of date when it actually appears maybe two weeks from now. Thank you for your patience. Your call IS important to this blog.

September 24, 2003

BOOK TOUR ADVISORY

I am flogging my book today in Washington, D.C. Tonight I'll be at Olsson's Books in Arlington, Va., at 7. I'll be sleeping on the floor, but, dammit, I'll be there.

JUST A THOUGHT

How about we put this judge in charge of the California recall election?
