  • One reason that "Clueless" and "Red as Blood" work for me is that they have *different titles* from the original works/legends. That sets the author free to invent and the audience free to enjoy (or not) without being constantly tripped up by unwelcome changes in something that seems to purport to be a faithful adaptation. Now I want to go track down the others Grace mentions. So...

  • Good work by all concerned! I'm glad you decided as you did.

  • David, Has he recorded Let's All Diagram Sentences? I'd like to hear it, but won't be in Minnesota anytime in the forseeable future.

  • Bonnie, You're right about human pattern-seeking. As another survivor of the sixties, I remember the fuss about "Puff, the Magic Dragon" and its supposed drug message. After that had gone on for quite awhile, someone did a marvellous parody of the code words process as applied to the Star Spangled Banner. It worked surprisingly well, what with the references to bombs and all. Of...

  • Linda, I haven't seen it yet, and now I'm not sure I want to. The trailers I saw made it look intriguing, but if there's graphic torture then it's not the film for me. Has anyone else seen this one? Thanks for the heads-up. Jane At 07:15 PM 2/3/2007, you wrote: >And I was stunned. From the trailers, it seemed a true fantasy - >creatures big and small.

  • Wendell, I would've been denied college admission myself if reading even most of the items on that list were a prerequisite. Many were not required by my high school Way Back Then, so the decline of civilization must date back quite awhile. Since I now have my MLS and have published nonfiction, short stories and a novel, I guess I also recovered! It's been decades since I graduated...

  • Ah yes, standardized tests. It's the CSAP here in Colorado, and it eats weeks of time. An Arizona cousin of mine has quite teaching grade school because she can no longer try to give her students what they need because of the time pressure from their version of the monster. Sorry, I think I may be getting off topic there. Drilling people for test scores does make it hard to pass...

  • Walter, I meant the congratulations sincerely, and mean them all the more for knowing a little about the obstacles you faced. However, there is always some luck involved in life. It starts with small things like getting across a street safely--a young family here in Denver didn't, just recently. They were crossing quite properly with the light, at a marked intersection. Wishing you...
