Reverse cowgirl: "Can't cyberspace be free of the old crybabying of feminist wanna-be victims who spend too much time and too much ink bleating and pointing at one more forum in which they've decided men are keeping women down?"
Hey the Daypop Top 40 is back. Life can now resume.
One of my favorite new blogs is 101-365. Great pics, wonderful attitude.
It's snowing on Jeremy Zawodny in Ohio. He's returning to California tomorrow too.
Today's my last day in NY for this trip. Hey if you've never tried NY, give it a whirl. It's a very rational city. The geography is tiny compared to California. That point came home clearly flying into JFK on Thanksgiving evening, crossing the Hudson seeing the George Washington Bridge to the left, and then have the whole damned city open up, from the north Bronx, to eastern Queens, to southern Brooklyn; mid-town and Wall Street, all no bigger than a bunch of cornfields in Nebraska. You can see it all in one eyefull. It takes ten minutes to get almost anywhere in Manhattan by cab or subway. 25 minutes if you want to go to a suburb (and there's no traffic). The food is cheap and excellent. Most of the city is lower and middle class, so you can live reasonably well on not too much money. And it's a melting pot. New cultures mixing together from all over the world. My parents' neighborhood is turning Korean, where we used to live in Jackson Heights is Central and South American. Indian and Chinese are around Main Street. And that's just in Queens. Who knows what's going on elsewhere in the city.

Here in NY, ReplayTV is running radio ads that say the reason to get their product is because you can skip the ads. This is surprising, and probably not a good idea long-term. They also say in the rush-talk at the end of the commercial that they can change the functionality of the product, presumably through the phone-home connection. I doubt if many of the listeners realize this could mean removal of the feature they bought the product for. It seems like they're upping the stakes in the battle between Hollywood and Silicon Valley, with the TV watchers of NY as pawns caught in the middle.
Thanks everyone for all the great ideas and advice on communicating with my father. I'm going to get a sheet of paper with all the letters of the alphabet, and give him a pointer so he can spell out words. There were lots of other ideas. We're going to go for the low-tech and relatively easy ones, like finding someone in the ICU who can read lips. We know all the people in the ICU because Dad was there for a few weeks. We all go through this one way or the other. Our parents never stop teaching. And there's no end to what we can learn from each other. Thanks!
