closed eyelids

Like the f/k/a gang, the folks at The Heron’s Nest

enjoy the haiku of Alice Frampton.  Here’s a pair

from today’s new THN, and one from 2002:




the slap of a beaver tail
at twilight








dead calf
a mother licks
the wind  









moving day–

warm rain

on cardboard





dead calf” & “mosquitos” – The Heron’s Nest (Sept. 2005)

“moving day” – New Resonance 3: ; The Heron’s Nest (2002)



supine under blue skies —

behind closed eyelids

a blood-red ocean

tiny check There’s a lively debate in the blawgiverse on whether  pirateS

looters in New Orleans should be shot on sight.  Ted

Frank has a round-up at Point of Law, and makes pro-

shooting arguments.  Norm Pattis disagrees at C&F.

This is too heavy for me to think about today.

update (5 PM): Steve Bainbridge makes what seems

to be a very logical distinction between shooting armed

looters in self-defense and shooting unarmed ones.   I

would also think that private citizens especially have no

right to shoot looters except to protect their own homes

and families.  As usual, I am turned off by the propensity

of so many weblog Commentors to spew such hated and

lack of respect.


tiny check  After some rabid ACLUphobes struck Glen Reynolds

for their blogrolls, Eugene Volokh, in The ACLU and Me:,

admits that he’s done some work for the ACLU, too, 

(despite frequently disagreeing with them).  Bravo,

Prof. V.


gas pump g  Regular gas broke the $3/gallon mark for the first time

in our region (literally) overnight — jumping 20 cents or more at

some convenience store pumps, and getting as high as $3.17.

So, I actually felt relief this morning when my usual station

“only” charged $2.869 per gallon.
