(no subject)

Today was a bad day for furry and feathery critters. Saw a dead cat on the street driving to work. Then a dead possum in the parking lot. A dead sparrow and a dead pigeon along my noontime walk. Plenty of deadly variety, anyway.

Now for news from Iraq:

"We are immortal until God decides otherwise."

"I truly believe we are protected by God,"

reinforces the ... conviction that God is on their side, seeing the war [as] good versus evil.

"We are fighting darkness here, we are fighting the devil,"

"They could shoot a thousand rounds and they still would not kill me."

Evil and fanatical enemies of the US? No! US troops, of course

getting into the movies

My friend Mike is directing his first feature-length movie from October 17-27. He's looking for volunteers who can donate a day to the production. Possible thrilling duties include running slate, script supervision, pointing lights, or being extras in a bank robbery scene or at a park. If any Angelenos reading this are interested, let me know, and I'll get you in touch with the man himself.
