PHOENIX RISING

I’m out here in the arrid zone o’ Arizona. Did my talk yesterday at a local Universalist Unitarian church and a wonderful time was had by all. (I know I must have said this before, but my journalism teacher in high school told us never to use that phrase and now that I’m some kind of “pro” writer, I use it every chance I get.) I got two more talks out here. Today at 1 at the Barnes and Noble in Desert Ridge and tomorrow at 7PM at Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe.

By the way, Tempe is pronounced “tem-pee.” I always thought it was “tem-pay.” But that’s not so bad because there seems to be no agreement among Los Angeles residents as to how to pronounce Los Feliz.

I’m not gonna put the list of plugs in this entry. Just scroll down a few inches and it’s there. I’ve taken away the bit about the computer because I sold it.

    LA Yoga nice picture, point most enjoyed: how ordinary this stuff called zen turns out to be.
    Hope the job scene is going ok and that the book tour circuit isn’t too fatiguing.
    Are you getting to catch any good bands in AZ?

    RE: Brad’s article at Suicide Girls on Christianity, creationism and dinosaurs.

    I thought this illustration might be relevant.

    Here’s another pic just for the heck of it. Someone disheartened with the outcome of the 2004 US presidential election came up with this wishful map of the US and Canada.

    Not a registered member of Suicide Girls, but I wanted to say that your newest column hit close to home. I live in Pensacola, FL, which is kind of the belt buckle, if not a very sizable notch, on the bible belt. We have more churches per capita than anywhere else in the country, maybe the world. Before this creationism museum in Kentuky came up, we had one here, started by a guy named Dr. Dino. Apparently he was a very skilled debator. Even if he was trying to tell us all that dinosaur bones are lower in the earth because they are heavier, not because they existed before the time of Adam and Eve, it was(from what I heard) almost impossible to debate this with him and come out looking like you knew what you were talking about.

    That man is now serving a ten year prison sentence for tax fraud.

    This cannot have effect in actual fact, that's what I consider.
