SPUTNIK AND THE FIFTIES

SOME WORDS ON BLACKWATER

The comments, as well as the article, are worth reading.

And your will is strong, equalled only by your generosity.

I hold the same position you do on this authoritarian mess, getting worse all the time, if I understand you correctly.

Many postings here garner many "hits", but as you know, the cyber world is a howling vacuum unless there's a person behind those electronic flickers. Jack commented personally on many of my strips.

Since you are just about my only reader, I'll keep you posted.

Look for a private message with various info on it.

Happy Rosh, my buddy . . .( and the same to Judih!)
