OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

Sunday, August 06, 2006 :::


Have returned from points in near and around Danville, where Sorensen held its most recent PLP session. Once again, we endured a power outage (though a far shorter one than that which engulfed us in C'ville in June). But that minor inconvenience was more than compensated for by the highly entertaining and informative presentation by Barnie Day on Saturday afternoon.

And I'm not just saying that because he gave us copies of "Notes from the sausage factory" (and inscribed, to boot).

In other news, there were rumors of kickball in my future. And pet psychics. But more on those matters later.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
