Perhaps blogging here will resume tomorrow...

The weekly magazine format parent site to this daily web log - Just Above Sunset - was just published. That would be Volume 2, Number 41 - Sunday, October 17, 2004

This week? Say, what do you make of the Republican National Committee's cease and desist order threatening legal action if certain groups do not stop talking about how reinstituting the draft may be necessary in these difficult times? See THE DRAFT below. Should the Republican Party cultivate thugs to counter newspapers that refuse to endorse Bush? See ENDORSEMENTS below. The mounting evidence that our leader is suffering from presenile dementia is reviewed in ODD DIAGNOSES - and in PRESS NOTES a comic lays into the mainstream press. Personal friends and big-gun pundits weigh in on the last presidential debate, and why women and housecats have turned on Bush in a FOLLOW-UP to the second debate... along with a pointer to the one key political document this week.

Bob Patterson returns in his role as The World's Laziest Journalist and returns to his other alias, The Book Wrangler, reviewing the new Kitty Kelley book. The usual odd quotes - Einstein on wearing plaid - and for the first time in 181 days it rains in Los Angeles, as you will see in the PHOTOGRAPHY section.

The Paris desk is silent this week. But there is a lot here.
