I'm not dead: My larger child went back to school this week, my little one just started daycare and my job is kicking my ass - in other words, my schedule is pretty thoroughly boinked. I'm working on some new stuff, though, and I hope to have it posted soon.
If you want me to go on arguing, you have to pay for another five minutes: So Craig is not guilty, not gay, not quitting but possibly not not quitting...I think it's safe to say that whatever he is, he's not.
Please excuse us while we kill ourselves: Saw my first, honest-to-goodness "jumper" the other day; the police had cordoned off the area around 28th Street and Sixth Avenue because there was a guy about forty stories up who was threatening to kill himself. I must say I was a bit surprised by the crowd that had gathered, a fair number of whom were shouting, "JUMP!" Call me naive, but I didn't think that stuff actually happened, I thought it was only a gag in the movies. One guy was classic:
"Yo! Let's go! I've been standing here for an hour! Fucking do it already!"
I don't know how it turned out. I had to get back to my office.
