Name: EZRA Lb. Source: unca20041124.htm The reason I cannot bring myself to employ the C epithet is not because I'm a moralist or a prude but because in listening to the Nixon tapes one discovers that the C word was one of Nixon's favorites. So every time I hear the word I flash on his ugly puss. A...

Name: EZRA LB. Source: unca20041124.htm No, Mr Harris, no. You cannot make a virtue out of a deficiency no matter how hard you try. What our ancestors fought for was our ability to own our own lives.

Go to the address above and check it out. For me it is a fun way to reconnect to books I haven't read in years. And it allows you to get a sense of how it used to be back in ancient times of yore.

Name: EZRA Lb. Source: unca20041124.htm David don't miss SALEM'S LOT (in my opinion the best novel he's ever written; it's a vampire novel but it's so much more than that.

Sky Captain preview

Name: Ezra Source: unca20040928.htm This is a response to Rob Ewen's request for a preview of Sky Captain & TWOT. The movie is an awesome technological achievement. You should see it just on that basis, its visual beauty. The question is, of course, is that enough for you? I'm 45 years old and grew...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Take care, Diane. ...does it matter if a character's name somewhat resembles the author's? As a reader all I have to work with is the information provided to me by the writer. Why would you make a character's name resemble the author's and then not expect me to see some sort of relationship? It is n...
