for the birds

Funny of the Moment
"Beautiful day..."
"Yes it is."
"Hear the birds?"
"Yes I do."
"Sometimes...I like to imagine what it would be like..to be deaf...and not be able to hear the birds... ....it's not so bad."
Poor Transcription from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'. HBO was having some kind of marathon.
Article of the Moment
"The Spy Who Gonged Me -- Was Chuck Barris a CIA Assassin?" That interesting tidbits, plus high(or low-)lights from "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game". (Come to think of it, it looks like the wolf files may have cribbed from Salon the Salon article I previously kisrael'd.)

Quote of the Moment
"If people really liked work, we'd still be plowing the ground with sticks and transporting goods on our back."
William Feather
