"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 weekly parent site to this web log, is now on line. That would be Volume 3, Number 31 for the week of Sunday, July 31, 2005. This web log is only the staging area for a number of the current events items and a few of the photographs. The weekly, in magazine format, offers much more than do the immediate, sketchy items here.

This issue of Just Above Sunset, for example, introduces "Our Man in London" - Mike McCahill, film critic for The Scotsman, The Sunday Telegraph and the BBC. In what we hope will be a regular feature, he provides his personal insight into just what is happening there. Of course, we still have "Our Man in Paris," Ric Erickson (two columns this week) and a collection of this week's shots of Paris from Don Smith of Left Bank Lens. All this, along with columns now and then from "Our Man in Tel-Aviv," Sylvain Ubersfeld, make Just Above Sunset an international sort of thing. This week we also have an exclusive photo from the Green Zone in Baghdad, and a one from the Pocono Mountains. And there's more of Malibu for those readers who expect Southern California.

The commentary and analysis in the Current Events section is six deep this week - from Washington to Baghdad to Cincinnati - but that is balanced by six non-political feature items, including media notes, everything you ever wanted to know about "leap seconds" and a film column having to do with elevators.

Bob Patterson is back as usual, with book notes and some observations on what folks want written, and why they might not get what they want.

The usual quotes are there - Dali is quite mad Mark Twain isn't - and there's a link to a new photo album, another one.
