    I left because of a workload and I'll come back as it suits me. Your attempt to create something from that is just an expression of your hostility and ache from the splinters you gave yourself.

    No, actual reasons given and no contrary reason to believe that Minnesota Public Radio and its legal department are doing anything untoward, unlike you. You were taking benefit from stolen goods. You might as well be a thief if you're going to do that. And you were inviting others by your conduct. Tam, by way of illustration.

    I clipped the rest of your childish nonsense
    If I reciprocated there'd just be your username and an ellipse.

    Now, to get back to the site that first caused your distress:
    So naturally, you, being a paragon of superior virtue, having been made aware of this criminal activity, immediately reported it to the civil legal authorities.
    Rather, I noted a potential problem and your actions, which were at the very least a violation of the policy of TOL and at worst potentially involving them in it. Either way you shouldn't be doing it. I get why you want to make it about something else, but it still isn't.

    His comments interested me and it was easy enough to answer the couple of distorted points you were making there.

    And didja notice that in "responding" to you, he completely ignored your comments about Reddit and Tor?
    There are all sorts of entangled legal questions involved and a lot of them haven't been worked out. My interest was narrower, protecting the site from any potential exposure and getting that rules violation off its pages.

    Now I like this thread, so I'm not going to let you turn it into a strutting yard of dishonest nonsense in my absence. You should just go create another thread no one will read if you want to do that.

    This one is on lockdown until I come back from finals.

    Jack painted a pretty good fish the other day. A minute ago he told me that he discovered the 48th dimension and that it's time to go to work mapping it.

    You just never know. I posted the fish in All Things Jack. Now I'm nervous. He has a good hand, eye, and an equally adept ear for pitch with the sort of fingers you'd love to have for guitar.

    Crossing fingers that he also has my father's fast-ball.

    No worries. I'd truly hire him to do a canvas for hanging in a pediatrician's office. Definitely promote all his creativity, its in his blood. If he has time for baseball? All the better

    I've had a bleak 24 hours of quiet panic starting with a phone call early yesterday morning, but thankfully, all is well. I had someone near and dear to me in a life-threatening medical situation far from home and far from adequate medical care. Many eventful hours later now, she's out of the woods and recovering, but it was a close call. Yesterday I desperately needed a way to keep my mind from spinning in circles with worry so I came back to post a little.

    I didn't think I'd be back at TOL at all, and it's actually been a very peaceful month as I've migrated most of my reading and mental energy to old-fashioned books plus newspaper (I have a free 6 mo. subscription ) and magazine. But as normal goes for me, I often rethink my first impulse. I wish I wasn't that way. Anyway, the reasons I had for staying here don't apply anymore and my heart really isn't in it at all. But I might comment semi-regularly, since this place needs balance, and I do like to be helpful.

    Talking with my pastor after church this morning (we have ours at 8:30) and I wondered aloud that if we had an app to track it and everyone agreed to read their Bible's electronically this week what the app would tell us about our habits.

    He smiled a sad smile.

    Jack is hungry the other evening coming back from swimming lessons and we stop on the way home to get him a happy meal. He says he wants a milkshake with it, so I ask my wife, who is riding in the backseat with him, "Get that as a drink with it?"

    And she says? "What did you just call our son?"


    Our next car is going to have to be a quieter ride.

    A good friend of mine said to me that there are more important things going on in the world to trouble and move us than 100 year old statues.

    And I said, "But isn't it good that we never have to choose between being compassionate or just, fair or kind, or between the lesser and greater of goods, that we can do every good we can do, the great and the small in turn. And each of them, every one of them, is a service to God."

    Walter Becker is dead. If you're over 30 and you don't know his name, you still probably know his music, as half the writing team of Steely Dan. When the world was rasping and gyrating, they gave us cynical and smart, smooth and cool. The took the education of jazz and fused its spirit into the pop bloodstream...Rickie Lee Jones, a fabulous writer and singer herself, said this about him:

    I am Rickie Lee Jones. And I was one of the women Walter Becker took such good care of in his short life. I would want you to know that. He was so funny. And no, I didn't like the soprano sax on "Satellites," but that sound ended up... well, listen to Dave Mathews, for one. Walter knew what he was doing. He planted music. It grows all around us now.


    Goodnight Walter. Thank you for making thoughtful, frequently cynical, longing, broken, beautiful music. Thank you for the Scam, for Katy, the Pretzel, and the album I couldn't take off my turntable, Asia--so beautiful it forced me to forgive you for Deacon Blues. You will be missed.

    My wife and I have fairly divergent perspectives. I'm a born rationalist and she married me. So that's screwy right there.
