Sometimes, like now -- listening to "Auto Tech Pilot," you've got headphones on and you get a lyric jammed up in y'r skull and think, 'that'd be a sharp header for a post about such-n-such.' Only, you've done precious little surfing and've actually got nil for links back-burnered. So, maybe, what's gotten out of hand is that my mind is leaping to contentless blog post headers. That's got to be a sign of some kind of degenerative mental condition.

I can't find a transcript to verify what I heard in passing but I'm pretty sure I caught Arnold saying something to the effect of "with the help of the gods..." I didn't catch the context but "gods" was definitely plural. I immediately wondered, which gods does Arnold plan to be guided by? I can't wait for him to bust out with some "Wotan and Frigg came to me in a dream last night and told me California must stop taxing corporations ... and conquer Poland!"

Tidbits about the upcoming release of Heinlein's unpublished first novel, "For Us, The Living: A Comedy of Customs" (1939), from Spider Robinson at Sci-Fi Wire. Given the title, comparisons to Rand's "We the Living" (1936) will be obligatory.

Even if there's disagreement about how much it dropped off last year, I think we can all agree that it's been in steady, steep decline since this season started. It's become virtually unwatchable. I'd be very surprised if has even 1/5th of its audience left by the end of this season when it gets cancelled. When Josh yelled, "You want a piece of me?" last night, it was like seeing Fonzie wearing his leather jacket on water skis again.
