Truth v. Truthiness

Name: Alex Jay Berman Source: unca20070808.htm KOS, we've danced before in this space. In the course of that gavotte, I misstepped, or rather misspoke. When my mistake was pointed out, I admitted that I was wrong, and apologized, you may recall. I present this so as not to seem as if I am "piling o...

Name: Alex Jay Berman Source: unca20070808.htm I realize that the terms of the Ellison-Groth et al. case cannot be discussed. But surely part and parcel of the settlement would entail that the "Harlan Ellison, Enemy of free Speech, is trying to shut us down" (my paraphrase, mind) banners and appeal...

Um ... Neil Young knew Manson enough back when to give him (probably when he wasn't as raving-nutter-mad yet) a motorcycle.

Interestingly, the four Peggy named are in descending order of their closeness to Harlan. Jesse James->befriended and killed by Bob Ford->befriended Jefferson "Soapy" Smith->conned Mexican President Porfirio Diaz->met William Randolph Hearst->met Dorothy Parker->met Harlan. Sorry; couldn't...

Hmm. Can't right now. Most of the others were names with which I had a passing familiarity, so they didn't take much thought. Yours, I only know of Mishima, so it'd take some looking. And I really have to be finishing this proto-legal brief thing I'm writing ... Later, though--unless someone beats m...

Comments on Pavilion "six degrees" thingy.

So as not to break the posting rules, I'm putting this here. Fel free to reference it on the board if you want. Adam-Troy posted several entries for degree-ing. Ted Bundy is easy: Ted Bundy was the neighbor of true crime writer Ann Rule. If harlan hasn't met Ms. Rule herself, it's almost a certainty...

Double-Posting Per Host Request

Name: Alex Jay Berman Source: unca20070808.htm HARLAN: I would junk it; it would not reflect well on you. Also, it might spark some publicity which might, considering recent events, might backfire.

Name: Alex Jay Berman Source: unca20070808.htm The thing with "Six Degrees"--where the steps are usually confined to "worked with on a film" or "is related to, by blood or marriage"--when done by simple meetings or acquaintanceships is that it becomes all too very easy, simply because journalists t...
