: Kris and I are planning a comic of epic proportions. In doing research for this comic I came across Pat Buchanan's web site, but no, that's not what I wanted to show you. At the web site, they have an American Heritage library, and I was going through it and I thought they had the Constitution in there twice. But they don't. They have the U.S. constitution, but before that they have the Confederate Constitution, which is interesting to read as I had never read it before.

Article IV, Section 2.3: No slave or other person held to service or labor in any State or Territory of the Confederate States, under the laws thereof, escaping or lawfully carried into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor; but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such slave belongs, or to whom such service or labor may be due.

    There's just nothing else to say.

Later: What the...? www.buchanan.org is running Apache! You'd think that Pat would take be the first to take a stand against a communistically-developed software package named after a tribe of savages, but I guess he's just a hypocrite like all the other politicians.

    Oh, I see what it is. buchanan.org is being hosted by advicom.net, which uses Apache. Still, you'd think they would care enough to take their business to a web hosting company that uses all-American Microsoft products.

    Prokofiev [Ha ha! Then Prokofiev showed up!] and Stalin [Ha ha! Then Stalin--no, that doesn't work.] both died on this date in 1934, I think. Today was also the day Winston Churchill coined the phrase "Iron Curtain".

Later Still: My mother writes in with an elegant, nigh-Gordian solution to a question that has been puzzling me: who is less trustworthy, Bill Gates or Orrin Hatch?

    Tomorrow I'm going to see The Big Lebowsky! Everyone but me went to the sneak preview a month ago. Adam says it's the greatest movie ever made, Kris wishes it would go away. These two facts, and the existance of the Cohen Brothers Seal Of Approval (tm), mean I'm going to like it. Already Adam and I are quoting it left and right.

    I put up the Dirty Harry sketches Kris and I wrote today. They're probably going to go on the new album.
