George's pig died???

What did you think of the Pynchon book?

I've not read it, but I found myself a bit bewildered by John Clute's review:

The book sounds more like an experience to read than a story to explore. (I can't get Clute's phrase "a great tidal cud" out of my head now.)

So, um...how did you like the new Pychon book?

The pig didn't just die, it was poisoned. And that issue of Contemporary Poodle left on George's porch was, I suspect, no accident either.

So, speaking of ugly ass fonts, I loathe Courier, and I thought I'd submit using Bookman Old Style. Do you think that one's readable and attractive enough?

That's it...

I'm never sending you a Clooney Alert again. Unless he mentions you, of course.

He had a pig?

I'm confused by that book review, too! And here I thought Delany's Dahlgren was pretty strange!

I had to hear it here that Clooney's pig had died.

That was his longest lasting relationship, people. Have some sympathy.

Max spent more time in George's bed than any woman.
