"It is better to be drunk with loss and to beat the ground, than to let the deeper things gradually escape."

- I. Compton-Burnett, letter to Francis King (1969)

"Cynical realism – it is the intelligent man’s best excuse for doing nothing in an intolerable situation."

- Aldous Huxley, "Time Must Have a Stop"

Topic: Announcements


The new issue of Just Above Sunset, the parent site to this web log, went on line just as the day began out here in Hollywood. This is Volume 3, Number 27 - for the week of July 3, 2005 - and is in magazine format, with multiple pages and photographs and an archive and all that sort of thing.

Big stories this weekend that called for commentary there? Of course, the president's speech on the Iraq war, covered in four items. And breaking news late in the week, a vacancy on the Supreme Court for the first time in eleven years, and folks are out for blood. And, as the weekend started, news that Bush's Brain (Karl Rove) may be in deep trouble. All these began as items here and have been revised and expanded.

Our exclusive Paris columns are in - Don Smith with wry photos from the streets of Paris, and Ric Erickson with events last week - what was Ron Howard filming at the Ritz and the Louvre? - and with Saturday evening photos.

Bob Patterson is back, as the World's Laziest Journalist explaining that wearing a tin hat isn't such a bad thing, as the Book Wrangler suggesting some new titles, and offering a film review.

Features? Some beach history, and the Gipper turns out to be the Greatest American, and some quotes for the Fourth of July holiday.

Local Photography? Only the most unusual - check out the dissolute pigeons and other oddities!

There's lots there. Here are direct links to the items.
