His death made me realize that today we're a hobby where it was pretty

anymore. The Old Guard is passing away - such is life I guess.

Some here are already aware. Longtime COLA reader and sometimes-poster
MisterP (Patrick Klee) passed away April 8th after prolonged heart
problems. His father notified us last night -- he went into the hospital
and was being treated with an experimental drug, felt fine for a little
while, mentioned feeling crummy, was put to bed, and was gone when they
went to take his blood pressure. He was 26.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense.
Mr. Sense had been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how
old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic
He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as
knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the

To call terrorism an a consequence of oppression is flight of fallacy. Oppression is not a prerequisite for terrorism. Oppression is merely a convenient excuse, and terrorism is merely a tool. The privileged, aristrocratic, who have been raised on a silver spoon from birth with nary a thought of what oppression means (save on the giving end) have provided the lion's share of terrorism.
It matters not whether the excuse is "Allah", "Glory of Ceasar", "Lebrensraum", or "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" to name a few, each have sponsored te...Steve Jobs Passes Away
