    Adam, what happened to all of the neocon / theocrat asswipes who were calling you a “LYING TRATIOR” and such during the campaign?

    As far as the word “neo-con,” I don’t have a better term, either.

    Regardless of what we call them (or what they call themselves), I’m ambivalent to regard them as allies, given their track records in the past — Richard Nixon, Reagan, both Bushes — despite whatever rhetoric they offer about shrinking the State, in the end that’s all it is — empty rhetoric. Whatever we do for them in terms of support — rhetorical, financial, etc. — they don’t seem to regard us allies, but as resources to be harvested or mined, then thrown away when no longer needed.

    For example, yesterday some telemarketer from the Newt Gingrich Foundation called me, asking for a generous pile of FRNs, for which I would receive some overpriced goodies (signed books, etc.). Throughout the call, I kept thinking of how Newt played us good with the Contract with America, back in 1994. Now he’s at it again, with a New Contract for America.

    For what it’s worth, the Dominionist (sp?) theocrats are slightly better, not on the issues, but simply in that they’re more honest about what they want from us — that we shut up and do as we’re told — and how they want to reshape society.

    At any rate, I’m not too good at shutting up and doing as I’m told, unless there’s a paycheck involved, and I don’t see anyone in the movement offering me one of those any time soon. While I wouldn’t turn one down, I don’t have any intention of soliciting one at present.

    Steve Miller the musician? First time I’ve heard about it.

    And I agree 100 percent about Maher and Means — had face-to-face contact with the latter, back in 2001.

    Looks like I won’t make it to this year’s Bubonicon, for various reasons — too much personal stuff going on, among other things. I’ll miss seeing you this year, Vic!

    Is there any chance that next year, the Con Committee will start publishing the schedule of panels, readings and such online? That would help a lot.

    Been thinking about maybe starting something similar in February — start off small, like Bubonicon did. I’d include something for the open-source techies, maybe something from the LFS, keep it more oriented towards science fiction than the fantasy / horror stuff, I dunno. Ideas? Maybe call it “Hantacon” . . . ?

    Adam, you forgot that you’re also an illegal Mexican who’s stealing at least one American job.
