Currently Hanging(ish)

Becky writes: “I just saw the cutest Obama jack-o’-lantern ‘gallery’ in Wallingford. The owners of the house were exchanging Obama shirts for fresh jack-o’-lanterns.”


“This is why I am so excited to be living Seattle right now. I just hope those &**&^&%&^$%# don’t steal the election.”

[Last year, I carved a peace sign jack-o’-lantern at a pumpkin-carving party. I was very pleased with it and myself; no one had the heart to tell me until days later that I’d actually carved the Mercedes Benz logo.]

Thank you, Becky!

Nice work DOUG.! I usually go through a box of bandaids by the time I'm done hacking away at my annual jack-o'-lantern.

Thank you Bethany and Becky, and of course, visualist web director editors for the berry beryl cool jack-o-lanterns peter greeter pumpkin head meater, who may or may not have had a wife and couldn't seat her gubnatorial jigsaw puzzle race to see the saw blades whirring in the paper traders on the corner box paper sale lots.

Because, and that's "the big because",

(because my personal e-mail access lotto prevention parade number for "slow him the f*** down" ( fact or F**K?!) has been denighed in a certain officials account),

I am left with the decision to slide on into the confessioal love seat to provide for your whisper treats, less than tantalizing awareness.

{ I can only surmise at this point here in time,

on the libraries public computer terminal, as to why the anti-leaking numbering seam legally

(or should I question the legality?)

is/is not preventing my e-mail access...}

What I do have for the nickle and dimers on the "meter-box" accounting bounty trail, is the obvious scam (or should I say the lack of oversite?) at the speed of which Wallstreet accountants and manufactures have not updated the "quarter here, quarter there" death by change loss leaders in the war on the paperless whirlwind crusade for wi-fi dominance to "the piggy bank"

( quarters can't keep pace with the Wall Steet Journal price differential between newspaper corner box price and the fluctuation of marketing and advertising profits )

Example today.

The Price on the Journal on the Ballard market street street corner sales delivery system.

It may be a "very small price point equation" for people who don't count the pocket change, yet when the paper box says $1.50 a sale, and the machine won't let you in for less than a $1.75 sale, and the newspaper price on the paper itself says it's $2.00 sale, you know that something somewhere comes up with a split point differntial that is very much the crux of a big debate on the headline,


A quarter here, a quarter there, well I'll tell you something.... if it was "my" paper and quarters, I'd be on the HORN of Vahalla riding in on the cusp of a wave standing in the Supreme Court Screaming at the little sound recorder in my head for quiet and decorum, for we can guess at this point that the "bench" would find that sort of outburst unappealing, if not outright rude.

This is, I understand a very miniscule news item in light of the world finacial crisis, the presidential race to election, and the war on terror.... yet in all reality it speaks to the build up of, and the dissemination of large chunks of world wealth bleeding from the little cracks of the people on the street and their inability to get a leg up on the class war stratification during the markets daily freeze and unstoppable appetite to feed itself the profit first in the "computers security psych gaurd for wi-fi/real time people interface protocals".

Advice for the tech giants in the advertising and telecommunication seats of power....
be honest about your super delivery systems of voter fraud and rip and turn scams on the public.

The Oscars are only a few months away.

Nicely done, Doug. I also made an Obama pumpkin, but you'll have to go on Facebook to see it.

What ever happened to the "Bush Knew" jack'o'lantern, so popular back in the day?
