"it is better to be on meds than to be a miserable old man."
-- Mr. Shife

"If you spend your whole life worrying then your life only has meaning if what you fear becomes real."
-- quoted by Shife, source unknown

the main problem with the internet --from a consumerist point of view-- is that there is always --ALWAYS-- some new place to head, another whim to chase, a fresh idea at the end of a click. you don't leave the cerebral mall until the power goes out.

i remember with wry irony when politicized hippies came to realize slowly that their dreams were not shared by most black folx in america, who actually did not want any part of revolution but wanted instead a piece of the pie, and whose hopes were modeled a good deal more on george jefferson than angela davis. this was quite a shock to those privileged enuf to have become weary of pie.

how n the hell could a country boy mistake a dead young possum --with its thousand needle teeth bared in that awful grimace-- for a dead rat? "well, it had a naked tail" he said.
