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

Hot Off the Virtual Press
Topic: Announcements
Hot Off the Virtual Press
Commentary will resume Monday. There's no Sunday night column. The world is much as it was Saturday, a day devoted to assembling the new issue of Just Above Sunset, the weekly magazine-format site that is parent to this daily web log. That is now online, and it seems to be Volume 4, Number 44 for the week of October 29, 2006. Click here to go there...

This week, SIX extended essays on current events - in detail and in depth - and a BONUS ITEM - a readers dialog on some current issues (and walls and bears and beer) with a cartoon from Ric Erickson, Our Man in Paris. SIX pages of startling Southern California photography, with two pages of Halloween shots (including some very odd graves of famous stars) - and the other pages are very arty, or something.

Ric Erickson, our man in Paris, sends photos and words - regarding that full-size Russian submarine sitting in the round pond at the Tuileries gardens - really, there's photographic proof! And there are the weekly diversions - handy (and cynical) quotes on how things really work, and the weekly dose of the weird from our friend in Texas.

Direct links to specific pages -
