Out Our Way:

Note: we're completely remodeling our office area, so we're sending out the Digest a couple of days early this month. God willing, we'll be up in running in a few days. See you next month.

Del's mom is improving — by the last week in July, the night-time sitter was discontinued. This means we'll be staying close to home for the time being, but we are much cheered by her being able to get up and around on her own again. She is gradually regaining some of the weight she lost.

On July 2, we went to a Mother Mary meditation by Jim Leasure at the House of Broel Victorian Mansion on St. Charles Avenue. It has a beautiful angel tapestry on one wall and cherubim overhead in ceiling. Jim did a wonderful meditation and individual readings afterwards – all of them positive. Jim is the artist who painted Del's Aries Angel painting several years ago and we try to connect up with whatever he's doing when he's back in town.

For the 4th, we were invited over to the Jamisons for Wendy's Fiftieth Birthday along with America's 200-something birthday. Her cake tells the story of both down below. I brought along for our contribution to the food some Red, White, and Bleu Coleslaw which was delicious. At night time we visited Del's mom at her Riverfront Penthouse to watch the fireworks from Jackson Square downtown.

On July 6th, Del's DELL Laptop was no longer hooking up to Earthlink and it took until July 24th before they fixed it for us. First time they replaced the system board, which was strange since we spent hours explaining to them that the problem was the modem. We sent it back and when it came back, VOILA! they replaced the modem and it worked. DUH! Did give a chance to try out her built-in wireless setup at a PJs Coffee Shop. It was working, but the modem was fried.

Spent a lot of computer time getting the AdSense Google ads added to my webpages this month. Only a few sets of documents remaining. The early results have been good and well worth the trouble. Folks from all over are reading my reviews and checking out stuff from the ads. Found out the ads show on IE6, but not on my default browser Netscape 4.8 — will have to upgrade to Mozilla soon.

I got a lot of activity this month from my Hidden Gospel review by Neil Douglas-Klotz. I gave a friend permission to send it out to a Spiritual Science Study Group and it rose to the top of the page views for a few days.

Got a call from my cousine, Marie Musso Baudoin, about a planned Babin family reunion in Houma the first Sunday in October, the third of October this year. Easy to remember the location: WOW, Hollywood. Woodmen of the World on Hollywood Rd, Houma.

We went out and did what WWOZ is constantly exhorting its listeners to do — heard "some live, local music". This time it was John Rankin, who is a virtuoso guitar player. Caught him first at the Columns on Tuesday, his regular gig, 8-11 PM, then a few days later at the brand new Big O — the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. I irrevently gave the name "The Southern Holy Trinity" to this painting of three men: From the right, there was Robert E. Lee, Jesus Christ, and Elvis Presley — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit of the South. John is a New Orleans D’Jango Rheinhardt on the guitar – a master of many genres of music. Cosmic music, blues, jazz, pop, — he did “Tico, Tico” — an amazing rendition and many of his own songs. He made “Sunnyside of the Street” seem like a brand new tune. He is also the son of Big Mama of WWOZ Saturday Mornings fame.

The last two weeks of July are always a dining out treat, with our anniversary on the 16th and my birthday on the 20th. We ate lunch together at Ruth's Chris Steak House on Broad, the very first location of Ruth Fertel, and where she hung out on nights up to her death a few years ago. I ate at the Fat Tuesday Cafe and Mandina's Restaurant with my friend, Brian. Later a dinner at the Bon Ton on Magazine St. with Del, then a carnival club dinner at the Crescent City Brewhouse. Lucky for me there's a nice warm blanket of humidity over us which burns up the calories very quickly.

Tonight as I write this, it is July 26, and I fixed a nice dinner of red beans and rice and some mixed veggies grilled for Del, Doris (her mom) and Dan (her brother). Doris commented on how long it's been since she's eaten at a dining room table. Maybe it was Mother's Day, which was the first day since her back operation that she'd been out of the house except for doctors' visit.

Movies we watched this past month:

Notes about our movies: Many of the movies we watch are foreign movies with subtitles. After years of watching movies in foreign languages, Arabic, French, Swedish, German, British English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and many other languages, sometimes two or three languages in the same movie, the subtitles have disappeared for us. If the movie is dubbed in English we go for the subtitles instead because we enjoy the live action and sounds of the real voices so much more than the dubbed. If you wonder where we get all these foreign movies from, the answer is simple: NetFlix. For a fixed price a month they mail us DVD movies from our on-line Queue, we watch them, pop them into a pre-paid mailer, and the postman effectively replaces all our gas-consuming and time-consuming trips to Blockbuster. To sign up for NetFlix, simply go to and start adding all your requests for movies into your personal queue. If you've seen some in these movie blurbs, simply copy the name, click open your queue, and paste the name in the Search box on NetFlix and Select Add. Buy some popcorn and you're ready to Go to the Movies, 21st Century Style. You get to see your movies as the Director created them — NOT-edited for TV, in full-screen width, your own choice of subtitles, and all of the original dialogue.
P. S. Look for HD/DVD format movies which are now available from NetFlix.
Hits (Watch as soon as you can. A Don't Miss Hit is one you might otherwise ignore.):
“Spiderman2” (2004) — Peter Parker was really swinging in this one, not on his spider thread, but dangling on a string connected to Mary Jane's heart. “She loves me, she loves me not, and even if she loves me and I love her, I can’t tell her because her life will be in jeopardy.” Blah, blah, blah, well, MJ's life got in jeopardy anyway. So it went until MJ donned a white wedding dress to marry the editor’s son. “Played football on the Moon” someone said about this hunk of an astronaut. Well, he couldn’t play ball on Earth and the movie ends with the villain becoming a hero, the hero being left at the altar, and Mary Jane getting laid in Spidey’s web.
“The Missing” (2003) — brilliant movie about Tommy Lee Jones as a missing dad in 1885 who returns to the daughter he abandoned as a child. Only he returns as an Indian. When Cate Blanchett’s daughter is kidnaped by Indians, she needs this father she doesn’t want in order to help retrieve her daughter before she is sold into Mexico. An old-fashioned Western adventure with calvary, renegades, a strong woman, and a spooky brujo thrown in for good measure.
“Shattered Glass” (2003) about Steven Glass, an oily, ingratiating young journalist almost raised by a mom who apparently believed all his outrageous stories as a child and forgave him every time he got caught in a lie. Almost, I say, because he never made it to maturity, never got an ounce of morality, and wrote fictional accounts passed as facts in “The In-Flight Magazine of Air Force One” some of which may have inspired the previous occupant of the White House on his way to impeachment. Will the “New Republic” survive the scandal of fabricated articles flying under the radar screen of its fact checkers and editors? Asked and answered in this movie. An excellent inside look at the life and times on a national magazine and a fine tribute to Michael Kelley who was Glass’s first editor.
“50 First Dates” (2004) — Adam and Drew like Adam and Eve get to meet over breakfast, every day, for months. Then they have dates after breakfast. He gets to meet her dad and brother who have been celebrating Dad’s birthday everyday for an entire year. The same present, new birthday cake, and newly white-painted workshop walls for her to paint a mural upon. After losing short-term memory, Lucy begins each day anew with no memories of the previous day — to her it is her dad’s birthday, a Sunday, and she always has breakfast at this restaurant on Sunday. The amorous gigolo, Harry, gives up his one-day dates with glamorous tourists and is smitten by this local beauty. He comes up with a plan and that plan’s working out unfolds beautifully in the wonderful life of this movie.
“Veronica Guerin” (2003) news reporter digging into drug lords in Dublin puts herself and her family at risk to get the bad guys. Poignant story of a modern day Irish martyr. Excellent acting job by Cate Blanchett in the title role of this true story.
“Peter Pan” (2003) — fifty years after the original Disney movie, a new version using real actors with enough special effects to pull adults into the fantasy of childhood opening scene and enough story and script to hold them there until the credits roll. See Commentary on Peter's shadow here.
“Alex and Emma” (2003) a writer hires Kate Hudson as his stenographer to take down dictation for a novel his life depends on his finishing in 30 days, but Kate turns into a copy editor and focus group of one for the content of what Alex expects her to take down verbatim. Soon we begin to see the novel played out on the screen as he dictates it and watch the adjustments to the characters and their looks (“Add a moustache, no --- thinner”) — it adds a delightfully fresh touch to the movie within the movie. As the two parallel movies near an end, the ending becomes one that Kate can no longer dictate to Alex — he must choose the right ending on his own.
“Anger Management” (2003) in which Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler go through some male bonding and leave us saying, in the inimitable words of Jack from the beginning of the film, “We're peeing in our Jockies here.” The flux of the real with the feigned in this movie will make your head dizzy and your belly laugh. The Karpmann Drama Triangle was spinning faster than the DVD. Watch this movie and see the “Big Brother” grow up.
“American Splendor” (2003) — a comic book within a movie within a comic book. Harvey Pekar, the Cleveland Carmudgeon, wrote a comic book about his adventures in the streets of Cleveland for 20 years. Comic artists drew Harvey’s strip and each made Harvey look
different from the other one. Watch this movie and you still won’t know which one is the real Harvey. Okay, I’ll admit it! This movie is unexplainable. Go watch it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you that you might enjoy it. Just go watch it. Look, what are you hanging around here looking for more? I ain’t gonna waste any adjectives on this one. Go watch it. Then explanations will be unnecessary.
“Mona Lisa Smile” (2003)about a California art history teacher who brought her interest in Modern Art to Wellesley College in a female version of “Dead Poets Society” with Julia Roberts instead of Robin Williams. Only it was the students who rocked the teacher off her heels on the first day of class. An amazing look at the culture of the 1950s and the Spandex walls that had to be penetrated before even college girls could consider a career in addition to the ironing board.
“The Terminal” (2004) — a brightly lit movie we went to see after stumbling through the “Shadows and Fog” of Woody Allen’s dark movie. By now you know the drill: Tom Hanks is Victor from a small Russian-speaking republic who has landed in New York on the day his country has been overthrown by a coup and cannot leave the Terminal indefinitely. “Muerte” from “Baby Blues,” Stanley Tucci, gets no respect in this movie either. As head of Customs, he is in charge, but Hanks wanders through his realm untouched, lives in a world of wonder, gets free hot meals of airplane food, gets a job as a union construction worker, builds an incredible fountain, dates Catherine Zeta Jones, and gets a jazz saxophonist to play for him. Full of wonderful lines, touching scenes, scenes of wonder, and a behind-the-scenes look at a large enterprise — what happens when the day-people leave.
“I Capture the Castle” (2003) in which Cassie is the young girl who grows up to capture the castle her dad took them to live in some ten years later in what might be considered a Queen Takes Rook move in chess. Enough mistaken loves to fill six novels — Stephen loves Cassie, Cassie loves Simon, Simon loves Rose, Rose loves Neil, and will they ever grab the golden ring on this merry-go-round of unrequited love? Cassie is the thread which ties all the subplots together — she is the one who in effect writes the movie and narrates it to us as it unfolds. An unfolding in growth and maturation for all those involved.

Misses (Avoid At All Costs): We attempted to watch these this month, but didn't make it all the way through on most of them. Awhile back when three AAAC horrors hit us in one night, I decided to add a sub-category to "Avoid at All Costs", namely, A DVD STOMPER. These are movies so bad, you don't want anyone else to get stuck watching them, so you want to stomp on the disks. That way, if everyone else who gets burnt by the movie does the same, soon no copies of the awful movie will be extant and the world will be better off.

“Love Actually” (2003) sucks. Big time. Ten Hollywood messages without a movie.
“Cheaper by the Dozen” (2003) — kids, unlike doughnuts, are not cheaper by the dozen, ask any parent. But remakes of this movie seem to get cheaper as they go along. Cheap laughs, cheap shots, cheap prat falls, and a cheap plot — this movie had it all, or rather, lacked it all. Even got to see it cheap — Del borrowed it from her mom — or I’d have remained secure in my impression that this was another great Steve Martin film. Avoid at all costs – even FREE!

“Freaky Friday” (2003)— I was disappointed a bit because I expected to see Jami Curtis at her best, but she was the “Mom” in this feature for teeny boppers and was allowed to look the age she is. Not fun to watch her wake up without makeup. So the identities get switched instead of the kids (Ask your mother what a "switch" was used for, if she remembers). Another movie of kids-run-the-parents instead of the Biblical “Honor Thy Father and Mother” way. We watched it while waiting for a real movie to show up.

Your call on these — your taste in movies may differ, but I liked them:

“Identity” (2003) — One dark and stormy night a countdown begins: 10, 9, 8, 7 . . . A countdown to what? is the question posed as this nerve-racking movie unfolds. Two threads emerge amid all the flash-backs, -forwards, and -sideways: A late night hearing amid thunder booming outside to stay the execution of a serial killer. A convergence of stranded motorists on a Bates Motel from Hell. Lightning flashes, heads roll, bodies slam, baseball ball bats enter unexpected places, things explode, and bodies disappear without explanation. What is going on? Are these two threads related? And how!
“The Secret Lives of Dentists” (2003) an amazing and entertaining film whose title and previews titillate but don’t deliver. First the plural of dentist refers to a male and a female dentist who are married to each other. We enter the secret fantasy life of the husband which is assisted by a hallucination of Denis Leary who is a real patient. Not quite the genteel Harvey the Rabbit, Leary the illusion takes a leak on the side of the road while one of the dentists’ daughters is puking her guts out. Never saw an illusion pee before on film. We never get to see the secret life of his wife, but we are led to suspect, as the husband does, that she has one. This is too real life to be very funny in spite of Leary’s best comic efforts and too real life to expect that the husband’s lack of confrontation of his wife will turn out well. But it is real life — where anything can happen.
“Shadows & Fog” (1992) movie written and directed by Woody Allen. The entire movie was set in one night of deep fog in the tight streets of an almost mediaeval village. A murderer is loose in the shadows and fog and Woody walks the streets loaded with his witty lines and his ability to run backwards with his hands in the air at times when chased. Del said it was “notably forgettable” when it was over. But I enjoyed the large cast of recognizable characters: Malkovich as the circus clown, Mia Farrow as the sword swallower (Woody should know), Madonna as the voluptuous belly dancer married to the strong man of the circus, William Macy as a cop, John Cusack as the college student in the whore house with Kathy Bates as Madame and these ladies as her working girls: Lilly Tomlin, Ann Lange, and Jodie Foster. Hard to tell through the shadows and fog, but many other recognizable character actors populate this interesting film. At the end, Woody talks about it having being a long night, and one can see the merest glimpse of morning light just beginning to penetrate the fog under the circus wagon. A long, dark metaphor — be prepared to see a brightly lit movie after you watch this one.
“Darling Buds of May # 2, (1991)” — takes us on a holiday at Pierre Port when the Larkins stay at the Beau Rivage Hotel, headed by a French version of “Upstairs, Downstairs” Mr. Hudson, and an graceful lady, Mlle. DuPont who mistakes Mr. Larkin for a Lord because of his Rolls-Royce with the previous owner’s emblem on it. Catherine Zeta Jones lays on the beach in a bikini . . . pause for guys to enjoy the thought . . . They return to England and schedule a baptism for two baby boys, one of the Larkin’s and one of Catherine’s. Mlle DuPont is invited to England, her first trip, and she is dismayed to drive past the Lord’s home to the Larkin’s ticky-tacky cottage. But it is one full of love and tugs-at-the-heart-strings abound.
“In America” (2002) Into America comes a young Irish couple with their two girls, 5 and 10, Ariel and Christine. Their lost family member, Frankie, haunts their lives and keeps the dad from crying or getting a job acting because he cannot feel anything. They move into an apartment full of druggies and street people and Mateo who screams. Mateo becomes a part of their family and a new baby is born to the mom which brings its own luck. Amazing movie.

“Boudreaux, what’s wrong with you? I been looking all over Breaux Bridge for you. How come you drinking in the middle of the de day when you could be coon hunting?”

“Mais, I don’t want to talk about it, me.”

“Come on, Boo, I’ll buy you another beer and drink one with you and you tole me what’s wrong.”

“It’s Marie who started it,” Boudreaux said between sips of his Dixie. “She said I wasn’t lovey-dovey enough and got me some of dem howyacallit? Bye-Agoreaux pills — you know de kind wat makes you all sexy.”

“Hoo-whee! I done herd about dem pills! Dey didn’t work, huh?”

“Mais yeah, dey work beaucoup good,” Boudreaux said, still hanging his head down.

“Wahl, wat’s de problem, Boo? Wat happened?”

“I took dem maudit pills and a few hours later, Marie was bending over to get some frozen peas from the freezer, and I got so horny that I just went up behind her, dropped my pants, and popped her right there!”

“Sounds good. But how come you feeling so bad?”

“Mais, you see, dey won’t want us grocery shopping at the Winn-Dixie no more!”

Tuna Macaroni Salad
Background on Tuna Macaroni Salad:
This was a favorite dish of my friend Valerie King Topping in Foxborough, Massachusetts back in the 1970s when I lived there. She made it frequently during the summer months. This recipe comprises my best recollection of the ingredients, plus some additions of mine to add flavor to it.

1 16 oz package of Elbow Macaroni (small)
1 full stalk of Celery
2 bunches of green onions
2 pkgs of radishes
2 7oz pkgs of Tuna (approx)
1/3 large jar of Mayonnaise
Tony’s, Salt, Pepper

Cooking Instructions
Boil water, add macaroni, return to boil for 7 minutes

Add cooked macaroni to large mixing bowl
Add tuna
Chop celery and green onions
Slice radishes
Add chopped veggies to mixing bowl and mix.
Add Mayo and Tony’s Seasoning, Salt and Pepper to taste.
When well-mixed, set in fridge to cool down a couple of hours. (Can be eaten right away, of course)

Serving Suggestion
Makes a quick snack or a full meal. Lasts for several days and makes a wonderful cool meal for those hot summer days.

Other options
Serve with sliced tomatoes, avocadoes.

Bonus Food Saving Tip
This tip came to me from Jim Kelley, the produce manager at my A&P until he retired recently. This is very useful if you buy fresh celery and like to use a few stalks at a time. It will keep your celery as fresh as the day you bought it for several weeks. Simply wrap it tightly in tin foil or aluminum foil as shown in the two photos below. I've used this for several years now and rarely have to discard even a stalk or two before it's all used up. Heavy foil is best -- light foil punctuates too easily.

Trim slightly if necessary to set in drawer in fridge.

1. Poem by Pablo Neruda called "Poetry": In Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of His Birth

And it was at that age   . . .   Poetry arrived
in search of me. I don't know, I don't know where
it came from, from winter or a river.
I don't know how or when,
no, they were not voices, they were not
words, nor silence,
but from a street I was summoned,
from the branches of night,
abruptly from the others,
among violent fires
or returning alone,
there I was without a face

and it touched me.

I did not know what to say, my mouth
had no way
with names
my eyes were blind,
and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings,
and I made my own way,
that fire
and I wrote the first faint line,
faint, without substance, pure
pure wisdom
of someone who knows nothing,
and suddenly I saw
the heavens
and open,
palpitating planations,
shadow perforated,
with arrows, fire and flowers,
the winding night, the universe.

And I, infinitesmal being,
drunk with the great starry
likeness, image of
I felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke free on the open sky.

2. Poem by Bobby Matherne from Flowers of Shanidar called "Circles of Life":

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly.
— Richard Bach
            Circles of Life

The caterpillar is a moving warehouse
Gobbling up leaves as it plows
Across the tender tips leaving
Barren twigs in its tenebrous wake.

Green chyme fills the worm-like tube
Which undulates from leaf to leaf
Until the star wave arrives
From a butterfly-to-be.

The message is to begin to spin
A chrysalis, a tomb, a womb
For the butterfly seed within
To sprout and grow and fend.

And in the fending feeding
On the dark spearmint jello
Of its pendulous home
Until the food is gone.

Hungry, with claustrophobic wings,
The flyer nibbles away
The warehouse walls
And blow-dries its feathery appendages.

7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for August:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: A Psychology of Body, Soul & Spirit by Rudolf Steiner

What good is a psychology that attends only to the psyche (soul) and ignores the body and the spirit? If you consider that that is exactly what we have today which most people call "psychology", then you have the answer already. But there are some people, notably Robert Sardello, who work with a psychology of body, soul, and spirit, and that makes him an apt person to write an extensive introduction to Jung & Steiner and to this book by Rudolf Steiner.

In three successive years, Steiner gave 3 sets of 4 lectures and those 12 lectures comprise the body of this book. First in 1909 about a "psychology of the body" of the full human being, then in 1910 about a "psychology of the soul", and in 1911 about a "psychology of the spirit." These lectures are as fresh and new and interesting to the 21st Century reader as they were to his listeners one hundred years ago, plus we have the legacy of a hundred years behind us to prove how ineffective a psychology merely of the soul is. If you would cross the full stream of psychology, you must use the stepping stones of a psychology of the body, soul, and spirit which Steiner lays out for us in this book.

2.) ARJ2: Cars of the Fabulous 50s by James M. Flammang, etal

One of those glossy photo books with color photos on every page of every American car of the entire decade of the 1950s. They're all in there: Packards, Hudsons, Henry Js, Frazers, DeSotos, Nashs, Edsels, and that's just naming the ones that don't exist any more.

A coffee table book, perhaps, but a trip down memory lane for those of us lucky enough to have been infatuated with cars and girls at the same time in our teens during the 50s.

What kind of cars did James Dean, Elvis Presley, and Pat Boone drive? They're all in here. Put the top down and let the wind stream through your hair in a brand new 1956 Corvette. Or giggle at the Edsel if you haven't seen one before. Or ride shotgun while Bobby reminisces about his experiences with cars during the Fabulous 50s.

3.) ARJ2: Portrait of Picasso as a Young Man by Norman Mailer

In this "Interpretative Biography" Mailer lets it all hang out: the good, the bad, and the ugly side of Pablo Ruiz, whose artworks turned him into a Picasso, the one and only Picasso.

What was the big deal with Cubist paintings anyway? Mailer with the help of others tells us about Picasso, his art and his friends, Fernande, Max Jacobs, Guillaume Apollinaire, Gertrude Stein, George Braque, etal. Four hundred pages of text, dozens of full-page color plates of Picasso and others' artwork, and hundreds of smaller black & white photos fill this book.

Read the book, study the photos and learn about Picasso, his early life and times (through 1919) or read the review and get an itch to read the book. Your choice.

4.) ART: Writing Without Teachers by Peter Elbow

So you want to write.

So you face writer's block.

So you know how to write but you can't get started.

So give up.

You'll never become a writer unless you start writing. And this book will show you how to dynamite the logjam that has dammed up the flow of words from your mind to your fingers, and get those words freely flowing before your eyes downriver to market. Imagine your fingers flying across the keys in utter abandonment while words and ideas you didn't know were in you arrange themselves effortlessly on the page. And that's just the beginning. Later you call the Editor and the Judge into the room and with their help you figure how to align the meanings you want with the words on the page. In a nutshell, this is what Peter Elbow will teach you to do if you use this book. If you plan to just read it, forget it — it's a waste of time. Save your money and forget about being a writer — take up something easier, like genetic engineering, brain surgery or nuclear physics.

In this section I like to comment on events in the world, in my life, and in my readings which have come up during the month. These are things I might have shared with you in person, if we had had the opportunity to converse during the month. If we did, then you may recognize my words. If I say some things here which upset you, rest assured that you may skip over these for the very reason that I would likely have not brought up the subject to spoil our time together in person.

1. Padre Filius Reads the New Orleans Times-Picayune this Month:

Padre Filius, the cartoon character created by your intrepid editor and would-be cartoonist, will appear from time to time in this Section of the Digest to share us on some amusing or enlightening aspect of the world he observes during his peregrinations.

This month the good Padre hears the confession of someone who claims to have discovered the Secret of Immortality.

II. My Commentary for August:

1. Cryogenic Immortality

The placing of dead bodies into cryogenic containers with the hope of resurrecting them later when the illness that killed them is cured seems to be a modern-day form of the silliness that led the Egyptians to embalm their Pharaohs so as to preserve their bodies for future time.

The cryogenic storage is based on a completely materialistic view of life and death which deems that death happens due to some defect in the materialistic body, and that defect will be able to be undone later and life restored to the defrosted body.

Where is the immortal Spirit during the time the body is frozen solid? No attention is given to that. That Spirit will be going through a process of getting prepared to re-enter a new body on Earth, having learned all the lessons it had earlier come to Earth to learn. It will not wish to return to some mechanically resurrected body, even if it were possible to do so. It would be like asking someone whose twenty year old Volkswagen was rescued from a junk yard and its ignition repaired, “Do you want a brand new VW or this old clunker with the new ignition?” The old one has only a few more miles on it and the new one is right off the factory floor with no miles on it. Easy choice to make. Unless you don’t believe there is a factory floor option available. Someday it will become clear that the factory floor option exists and the cryogenic preservation technique will seem as silly to folks thousands of years in the future as the mummy preservation technique seems to us today.

2. Peter Pan and His Shadow

In the 2003 "Peter Pan" movie, a long scene is made of the dog grabbing Peter's shadow and his having to return to recover it. Amidst all the ado of his finding his shadow and getting it re-attached, it's easy to miss the essential nature of the event itself. Whenever we first meet someone with whom we are going to spend the rest of our lives or a notable portion thereof, our shadow is left behind and, like Peter, we must return to retrieve it before we can become whole again. Peter's shadow side is that he is never going to grow up and will never have a family of his own. Wendy has a marvelous family and that is what attracts Peter's shadow. In the act of retrieving our shadow, we must spend enough time so that we come to know and love the people who attracted our shadow, and in the process of the adventure which ensues, we have a chance to become whole again.

3. Ultrasonic Images

When I wrote my Dolphin novel about ten years ago, I predicted that it would soon be possible for humans to view ultrasonic images of babies in wombs with the same veracity and sharpness as dolphins and other cetacean species do using their native ultrasound equipment. Consider this: not only can dolphins see images like this inside of a human woman's body, but after the woman leaves, the dolphin can describe the image to another dolphin who will in turn see the exact same image. This is the process of spizualization or "spizzing" that I postulated that dolphins and their kin are able to do. By using the new ultrasound equipment with an appropriate set of transducers to pick up a dolphin spizztalk, we humans will soon be able to see, not only what dolphins are seeing in real-time, but things that they have only "heard" from their distant ancestors. This will bring the possibility of "newsreel photos" of history into being as a consequence of the very first inter-species communication in the history of the world.

4. Minimum Headline Inadequate etal

I wrote the following letter to the editor of my daily newspaper, the New Orleans Times-Picayune with the above title as the subject. They printed the content as I sent it, but chose another "inadequate minimum headline" for my published letter:

Minimum Wage Is Just a Start

Re: "Report: Minimum wage inadequate," Money Section, July 23.

If there were an award for headlines, surely this one deserves it: "Report: Minimum wage inadequate". "Oxymoron of the Year" perhaps, or "Tortured Tautology."

The minimum wage is the lowest beginning wage an employer can pay. It allows them to hire workers with minimum skills who can learn more skills, become more valuable, and earn an adequate wage in the process, isn't that so? Workers who remain at a minimum wage for very long aren't performing adequately and have themselves to blame - not some system which is being unjust to them, as the subtext of the headline presupposes.

Raising the minimum wage tends to eliminate jobs for those who require them and produces zero wages in the place of "inadequate wages". That is a real injustice to those unemployed workers and to the society in which they live. [End of Letter to Editor]

What I thought of later is that the big problem with the "minimum wage" is that it is coerced or forced upon both employers and employees. In a free economy, there is no "minimum wage" determined by some human law, but rather a "maximum wage" determined by the maximum amount a human is willing to pay for some entry level work. When that maximum wage equals what some other human is willing to accept as payment for the work, a deal is made in freedom, without coercion at any level. When two people strike a deal, it must be a good deal for both sides. Under such conditions no wage, however "minimum" in someone else's judgment, would never be considered inadequate by the person receiving it.

The big plus about such a wage is this: a freely arrived at maximum wage, decided upon as a good deal between employer and employee, would be absent the deleterious effects of a coerced "minimum wage". What bad effects? Good question. One hardly ever discussed in any socialist state. The reason that question never arises in most minds is that the news media and politicians never talk about those deleterious effects. It's the fog of socialism which obscures their view. When you consider the situation from the perspective of freedom, if human-made laws coerce a so-called "minimum wage" on a society, many jobs are eliminated that could otherwise find willing employers and employees. Ever wonder why people of modest means retire to South American countries and can afford servants they couldn't afford here? All we have to do to fix that problem is export our minimum wage laws to those countries. Then those countries can have the "boon" of our level of "unemployment."

Protectionist Views, Pro and Con
I got a letter of retort from some well-meaning citizen claiming that "many formerly high paying, manufacturing employment is now being performed overseas in sweatshops by workers working for starvation wages." Note: when someone uses emotionally charged phrases like "sweatshops" and "starvation wages," they have bought the argument of the left-wing socializers, hook, line, and stinker. But let me continue my line of reasoning: Those starvation wages are a very good deal for those workers who would otherwise simply starve!

Irish immigrants worked in "sweatshops" when they arrived and produced high quality goods that were proudly labeled "Made in America". As for "high paying" jobs leaving the USA for overseas, it's been always the case that jobs migrate to where the labor market is cheapest. Yankees were chagrined when the textile industry moved from union-driven high wages of the North to the South with its cheaper labor, and now those same so-called liberal Yankees are chagrined because other jobs are moving overseas. Do they blame the union? No, they rail about "sweatshops" and "starvation wages" while their former dues-paying members are out of work when they would have been happy with a lower wage, if the union had not prevented it.

When the passenger pigeon disappeared from the skies, it came as a shock to everyone. There had been flocks of thousands of these familiar birds around up until the year they all disappeared. Later we found out that there was a minimum size of flock, about 3,000 passengers pigeons, and any flock under that size could not sustain the continuation of the flock. Jobs are like passenger pigeons --- there must be a large supply of people locally who are willing to work for wages that are competitive with what a company will pay overseas. If not, thousands of jobs disappear overnight, just as the flocks of passenger pigeons did in the early 20th Century.

Free Market Basics
In a free market, this is where the jobs go: to places where the labor is the cheapest. And those migrating jobs, when they arrive, keep people from starving. They now have a livelihood in their own neighborhood and not only survive, but they learn skills which will allow them to become more valuable to their employers, if they do more than the merest minimum that is required.

If you were living on a deserted island and actively felling and shaping trees into boards to build a house, what would you do if a pallet of the size boards you were working so hard to shape by hand were to float ashore where you're building your house? Would you unpack the pallet and incorporate the boards into your house, finishing it much sooner with less cost (effort on your part)? Or would you do as the trade-protectionists and job-protectionists urge us to do: throw the pallet back into the ocean so that its usage by you will not create unemployment? The answer is a rational one, stated in the small, and the answer is the same stated in the large, if you have not been brainwashed by politicians and the news media to see things their way --- you know, the way they need you to believe so that they will be re-elected.

Thank God that America has a President who has put Americans' needs before his need to be re-elected. That's the kind of President who has shown by his deeds, not by mere words, that he deserves to be elected in the Fall.
