IN DOG WE TRUST
"This is a farewell kiss, you dog. This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq." -- Muntadar al-Zaidi, the Iraqi TV reporter who threw his shoes at President Bush at a Baghdad news conference.

It's cloudy here in LA, which is cause for celebration around these parts. We like clouds. We revel in the sight of an overcast sky in the morning. We like cold weather -- you know, under 75 degrees? "At least it's cold now," people say to each other in passing as the weather turns gray in December.
Now if only it would rain.
I wrote about Elvis Costello's new show here, and here's this week's "I Like To Watch," loosely centered around the prospect of bailing out Detroit so they can make more shitty cars for decades to come.
By the way, I temporarily solved my archive problem (archives from December 2006- December 2008 not showing up in the archive links to the right) by changing the number of posts per page to 50, which spans the gap, sadly. Personally, I'd strongly recommend anything in the archives from 2002. A tumultuous year in my life, therefore a very good year for blogging. Try June.
It's a great day to drink coffee. I want some coffee, goddamn it!
