I've been sort of under the weather and busy. Quick thoughts.
- Bluebeard's new draft is done and I've sent it around a bit.
- I was, unfortunately, denied a grant by the NEA this year. My genius is once again overlooked! They won't laugh at me once I've completed the ultimate superweapon, however.
- One of the reasons I'm looking forward to November 4th is that I am finally tired of reading political blogs and articles and all that stuff. It's gotten to be overload. I've been watching these people run for office forever. It's enough already. I want to listen to NPR and hear them talk to a painter, and not a pollster or former CIA operative for once.
- Speaking of which, did anyone else hear this episode of Fresh Air? Robert Baer says that he believes the Osama Bin Laden is dead. He says it really plainly. It's totally under reported.
- I'm contributing a short piece to ReVamped this year.
- The One-Minute Play festival was a fine time. Thanks to everyone who worked on it.
- Is it really warm in here, or is it just me?
