      Hi Jeff,

      My favorite imaginary friends are all dead. I like my Uncle and JPS. I
      find them both to be engaging ghosts, and plus they never claim to be
      holy, which is cool, since I don't have to get into all that angst
      over ethics and stuff.

      In another vein, you can't kill something that isn't alive either.
      Just for a little sexist chatter consider the following (and why I'm a
      little worried about voting for Hilary): I have a friend who
      postulates that most women are the living dead, or the grave itself,
      indeed why else do they drag so many men into early graves? Actually
      if you meet a woman that is not subconsciously out to own you or kill
      you, it's probably your grandmother. I find it scary that they set the
      last version of "The Night of the Living Dead" in Milwaukee, living in
      Lake Geneva and all, and I am very glad that a "hooked-up" Irishman is
      Mayor there, and my recent trepidation over the female police chief
      has eased as she has stepped down. Chalk one up for organized crime, a
      good healthy male pursuit in the course of ordinary civilization. One
      could argue that real women have been dying out in this species for
      centuries and now as Zombies are attempting a takeover. It's like
      banging your head against an immovable object for them though. It will
      boys and their toys 'til the world implodes, and it requires no faith
      to believe such a thing. Perhaps women can cause wars, (I was watching
      Troy last night) but probably because they can't figure out if they're
      alive or dead and blame men for it, but in the end it's men who win or
      lose them, so they burn down a few houses, they built them anyway.

      A woman just brought me a freshly baked M&M cookie, but I know it's
      only because she wants me to fix the vacuum and stop drinking beer
      today. It's nice to finally be old and beat up enough to just throw
      the tools on the floor and say: "have at it". Uh oh, now we'll have a
      relationship discussion. I don't mind as long as she doesn't try to
      eat my brain, something I experienced once in a long term
      relationship. Jesus is OK (as an imaginary friend)except for the holy
      crap, but I think the eating the flesh and drinking the blood thing is
      a feminine invention and I don't participate. That's how they get you.
