Wednesday June 23, 2004. Today began as Silly Folksong Day. Beginning with "And the name they called that ship was the Golden Monotreme." Continuing with:

Fair Eleanor she has lands and gold,
The cyclops girl has none.
Fair Eleanor she has three blue eyes,
The Cyclops has but one.

***To Pillsbury House, where I did data entry for the Community Barter Network and Pillsbury House's volunteer program.

***Seen: Galactic Pizza, 2917 Lyndale Avenue South. It doesn't seen to be open yet.

***I'd been in the habit of reading the New York Times on the web for national and international news. Today, I decided to switch to the Washington Post.

I don't consider the Times nearly as good a news source as I used to. (Even without the recent well-publicized problems.)

Will I read it for New York City news? Probably not; Newsday is better for that. Which is sad; Newsday is primarily a suburban paper, and I believe it no longer has a NYC edition.

I grew up reading the Times, up in Ulster County NY. When I lived in NYC, it was the paper I read regularly. (I sometimes also read the Post, which was then farthest left of NYC's papers; I gather it's now the farthest right.) I feel that I'm leaving part of my life behind.
Writing: Daily exercise -- Done. A sketch of what I expect if John Kerry wins the US Presidential election.

"Well Met, Well Met, My Own True Love" -- A conversation added which tells a bit more about the setting and (I hope) makes certain things about the two main characters more explicit.

"They Might Be Windmills" --

"History Line" --
