Leaving On A Jet Plane

2006-06-26 - 12:35 p.m.

I opened up my daily newspaper Sunday morning and got a shock. One of my favorite local columnists, Gordon Dillow, is going back to Iraq.

Yes, BACK. He's been there twice, both times as an embedded reporter. He's also a Vietnam vet, and has a reputation for telling it like it is.

He'll be gone for a month. During that time, he'll be posting into a blog at the Orange County Register. You can read his blog here. You may have to register at the Register, but it's free.

He promises to report the good and the bad. He's very good, very objective.

I look forward to his posts, and look forward to his return. Be safe, good sir.


Got my copy of Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp on DVD. I wrote about that in this post. The jokes are as bad as I remember, and the lip sync is naturally kinda odd - well, how do you tell a chimp to mouth his lines?? - but it's still pretty funny.

The Evolution Revolution songs are kinda like the stuff The Archies put out. Their spots are introduced by Ed Simian. (You young bucks won't get that joke.)

There are also sight gags and one-liners a la Laugh-In.

It was worth the $16. If you like that kind of humor, pick it up.


Be seeing you.
