Precarious 
cohesion. Slices 
of geography & 
history plyed 
together. The 
sound of Senegal 
all around, √Čtoile De 
Dakar, Youssou 
N'Dour's early 
band. On one of 
the speakers 
Arrian's Campaigns 
of Alexander sits 
half-read, a pile 
of CDs on the 
other, Bach's 
Brandenburg #3 
ready to be played 
next. For the 
moment it is 
a hermetically- 
sealed environment. 
There is only inside. 
Then an inch-long 
lizard skitters in 
under the door 
& in Fallujah 
the minaret 
of a mosque 
crumples 
under gunfire.




Stephen Hawking theorizes

The seabirds on the East Coast
carry Lyme disease. It's easy
to misdiagnose. Early subtle
infestation may look like some
listed celebrity who found
God in a remarkable way,
but still can't spell catastrophe.





the / fanciful past / of kara thrace

                       Now that the construction
                            of the Three Gorges Dam 
                    has been completed with
             minimal loss of life, the focus of
                  Chinese high society has turned
                         overwhelmingly towards
                        variants of Dior's classic little
                    black backless cocktail dress, 

                        & is currently favoring a fashion- 
                            forward take on Public Transport 
                      Victoria's attitude towards 
                              farm animals in combination 
                               with a non-steroidal 
                          anti-inflammatory drug.

NextGen efficiency, not 
politics, should be the 
primary decision criteria 
for site selection. That's 
why the MD5 Reverse 
Index has a browsable 
listing of the Houston 
Arboretum & Nature 

Center calendar of e-
vents for February. A-
mongst them is "Today
could be the day that 
your vote will get Paul
Ryan out of politics."



Take 

whatever you can 
whenever you think 
you can get away 
with it. Don't set 
a stopping point. This 

is not greed but it 
can be good. Is a 
reference library to be 
sorted later, as need 
dictates, things 

falling into place 
because at some 
previous time you 
took the time to 
take them in & 

shape them even 
slightly in your own
image, even if they 
belonged to someone else
at the time of taking.
