Yesterday, I sent Jon Carroll a fan letter about his column.

Today, I got a very short and sweet response thanking me for my note. Very definitely not a form letter. How cool is that?

Radical thought for the day: If feminism is the radical notion that women are people, then one could make a case that humanism is the equally radical notion that all humans are people, regardless of place or time of birth, upbringing, gender, creed, colour, or any of those other pesky distinctions that we seem to like to use to divide ourselves against one another.

So, I invite you, go forth with a twinkle in your eye and a song in your heart, and watch the folks who have nothing better to do than pick our pockets and spy in our bedrooms wonder what the heck we're up to.

Subversive in its simplicity, I tell you. Because really, rolling over for them hasn't done us a lick of good.

Missed you yesterday.

Marriage is a strange thing, isn't it?

Strange and wondrous, aye. Congratulations on your nuptials; I'm sorry that L and I couldn't make it to the land of SoCal. Let us know when you're back up this way, and we'll buy (or make) you dinner to make up for it.

Much love to both of you, with a squeeze for Sean thrown in for good measure. Keep us in your thoughts, as we will keep you in ours.

Yeff votes for home-cooking, since he loves it.
I think I can agree with that.... ;)

I'm afraid I just changed the channel. ;)

Miss you. I'm glad to see you posting here.
