Tearing up your son's septic system sounds awfully Freudian.

Seriously, he was in a gas station and ran out of cigs? Did he go through the dozens of cartons they usually have?

@3 - Perhaps he was just really peculiar and only smoked the single ones or something, still it seems like it'd take quite a bit of puffing to clean out any gas station I've ever been in.

Interesting news day today, between this and the getaway-raft robber.

Maybe the gas station had them behind a locked barrier. Or maybe the guy didn't want to steal or something; we already know he's kooky.

But "shit oh dear" is a classic Alaskan phrase I've most often from tugboat people from up in Prudhoe Bay. Them's lovely pomes, all rightie.

John Hoover is from Alaska and an amazing artist. The lines and forms he creates are stunning and rooted in Alutiiq tradition. In Alaska the best art, artists, writers, and singers are mostly Native. Nora Marks Dauenhauer is one of my favorite writers. For music check out Pamyua.

"How To Make Good Baked Salmon" by Nora Marks is one of my favorites.

Put this guy in a small, padded room with a nice window and a chair, give him lots of paper and some pencils, and just let him do his thing. I'm sure everyone will be happier this way.

Oh to know the bliss and glow
That good tobacco means
Just live among the everlasting ice
So imagine my amazement
When my stock of magazines
Was chewed into a chowder by the mice!
