I’m going to be slammin’ work today, with a heap o’ writin’ to do — and a passel o’ letters to drop — before the weekend, so just move along, little to see here.
OK, one thing to see: Dead Celebrity Songs, featuring retooled lyrics to “Candle in the Wind” for most recently dead celebrities you could name. Like, oh…
Goodby Don Adams

You had the grace to act a fool
Using your shoe phone we could tell

With a dream in your hand
Always had a job

Which reminds me: The other day I was in the bank, and picked up a copy of The Economist. Like most Yanks, I assumed this magazine would be edited for a smarter class of folks than, oh, Time magazine. Flipped to a random page. Elton John is described as “the bespectacled pop star.”
Alan threatens to shoot all writers who use the word “bespectacled.”
Off to the keys. Wish me well.
