    Arise Sir Alex
    Congratulations to Alex Allan on his knighthood. Officially it is for his public service including as the UK Chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee. But we know it is for his services as a Deadhead, prioprietor of the Grateful Dead Lyric And Song Finder (www.whitegum.com) and author of sleeve notes for the Europe 72 Set.

    definitely!
    one suspects this was not on his mind back in the day. Or any other time either. But it's well deserved and it's a treat to see. (And folks, if RT comes to your town and you have not seen him, check him out, and not just because the Queen likes him now!)

    Gratefaldean - in my experience of sending vines, shipping to the US normally takes 10 -14 days so you should get it soon.....hope you do anyway. I have not ordered 'Live at the BBC' yet, but I should do.. Does Thompson live in California now? I had no idea. Anyway he does indeed looks pleased to get some recognition from his home country. Good for him; he is right up there with the best of them..

    I thought he looked pretty pleased about the whole affair. Good for him, not bad for a California dude, by way of London, England. So...I ordered his new Live at BBC box from Universal in the UK. Received a shipping notification on 6/14, hasn't arrived yet. CB, how long should I wait before I start getting nervous? No idea what a typical overseas delivery would be, and no tracking info either...

    A serious award for Richard Thompson
    http://www.richardthompson-music.com/catch_of_the_day.asp?id=1350 And I was listening to 'Pour Down Like SIlver' when I saw this on Eurotraders. So what's it like to become part of the establishment RT? Did you tell the Queen you would meet her on the ledge?

for Snodgrass, for carrying the famous banner 1,200 miles across country-collecting signatures on the way. Brilliant idea, and monumental follow through. Yay Snod, and all who contributed! The good news is that it's not to late to contribute your love to this project-should you have missed the banner, for whatever reason. Snod and perhaps me here in Europe, will be collecting signed patches of cloth, from anyone who still wants to take part. The patches will then be sewn togther as a border for the existing banner. More info on where to send soon. ********************************** Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. Mark Twain

I'd also like to thank the academy, and my parents, and all the little people who have made this award possible. I'd particularly like to thank my Great-Grandfather for settling in San Francisco in the 1880's, after migrating from somewhere in Germany, then on to Liverpool, before finally landing in the "City by the Bay". Beats the heck outta Bakersfield...

If you were ever worried about TL not eating enough, worry no more. I can hereby testify that on Sunday she demolished a 5-course French Lunch (Soup, starter, main, cheese, dessert) with wine. For that she receives the 'Grande Bouffe award for gastronomie'. Bon appetit! Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Happy 153rd birthday, Nikola! Google is doing a nice tribute for him today and if you head over, there's tons of sites with info on one of the greatest scientific minds that ever lived.

The first annual Galileo Looking Glass Award for outstanding literary achievement goes to (drum roll)... Matt Taibbi! I've cobbled together some bits gleaned from an interview Matt did with campusprogress.org recently and interjected some quotes that I felt enhanced the gist. Matt's articles from Rolling Stone Magazine this year on both the economic meltdown and health care reform are outstanding imo. Thanks Matt! CP: You wrote a column in the New York Press a few years back referring to journalism as “shoveling coal for Satan.” I believe you also said that journalism as a career was worse than being a worker in a tampon factory. Should any sane young person consider a career in journalism? MT: If you have no real knowledge or skill set and you’re lazy and full of shit but you want to make a decent wage, then journalism’s not a bad career option. The great thing about it is that you don’t need to know anything. I mean this whole notion of journalism school—I can’t believe people actually go to journalism school. You can learn the entire thing in like three days. My advice is instead of going to journalism school, go to school for something concrete like medicine or some kind of science or something and then use the knowledge you get in that field as a wedge to get yourself into journalism. What journalism really needs is more people who are reporting who actually know something. Instead of having a bunch of liberal arts grads who’ve read Siddhartha 50 times writing about health care, it would be really nice if some of the people who are writing about health care were doctors. ~ from campusprogress.org ________________________________________ "...there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms." - Hunter S. Thompson ________________________________________ …for these people, with the proximity to power, being able to sit in an airplane with Hillary Clinton or with John Kerry or John Edwards or Barack Obama—that’s like the sexiest thing they’re ever going to be involved with. And it’s a lot of fun for these people. It’s intoxicating. You can’t take some 25- or 26-year-old kid who is just out of college, put him in that environment, and expect him to be totally objective about it. ~ Matt Taibbi from campusprogress.org ________________________________________ "I'm shopping around for something to do that no one will like." ~ Jerry Garcia ________________________________________ CP: ... Rudy Giuliani you called “the electoral incarnation of Tommy Lee Jones’ acid-bath-surviving Two-Face character.” And you referred to Joe Biden’s “creepy poof of blow-dried gray pubic fuzz.” Do you or your editors ever hear from these guys? MT: Yeah sometimes. The biggest thing I get is people not wanting to talk to me again after. Nobody ever calls up and says, “Hey, I don’t have pubic hair on the top of my head.” I mean, what are they going to do, argue? There’s no upside in getting into an argument with a media creature like myself. With somebody who has to maintain a respectable air of decorum like a politician, there’s no winning end game to getting into it with a lowlife like myself. ~ from campusprogress.org ________________________________________ "If we confuse dissent with disloyalty — if we deny the right of the individual to be wrong, unpopular, eccentric or unorthodox — if we deny the essence of racial equality then hundreds of millions in Asia and Africa who are shopping about for a new allegiance will conclude that we are concerned to defend a myth and our present privileged status." ~ Edward R. Murrow

TL, I have to say. If I was sure of how to pronounce it, I'd start sprinkling into conversation just to get a reaction. "Hey, that's some controversitous garden you got growing their, Molly!" "Quite the controversitous call by that ump last night, don'tcha think?" "I don't think that I've ever had such a controversitous time in my life!" "Where'd you buy that controversitous, anyway?"
