Hey, it's Mr. Haney

Senator Warner was on tv last week, and I couldn't help noticing how he is starting to sound and look like Mr. Haney from Green Acres.

An author talking

Went to hear Dennis Danvers speak the other night. Dennis Danvers is a science fiction author from Richmond, and he had some interesting things to say. Unfortunately, there were few people there, but then I got to ask him more questions with out seeming too greedy. I only had time to read one of his books between the time I heard he was speaking and the day of the program. I'll yap about that title on the Other Blog.
Hiring an uthor to speak is a chancy thing. It's a solitary occupation, so sometimes they have poor monkey skills, or some other problem. HST used to show up half in the bag, but that was part of his feral charm, I guess. I once heard Shonto Begay speak, and it was uncomfortable for all. He's a wonderful artist, but he must of died a thousand deaths at that podium, poor sod. He is obviously a very shy person, and I could feel the waves of empathy from all the librarians in the audience, all to no avail...
