I doubt if I ever reread Anna, but I might try War and Peace again, although after reading the bio of Tolstoy, I'm thinking not. Both are rather tedious and could using considerable editing!

I've used Craigslist, but don't feel comfortable with it for some reason. Guess I like to actually see and touch something before buying it. I even tried to sell my truck on CL. (No takers--I live out in the boondocks.)

Regarding your comment left on my "newspaper demise" post: despite early failed attempts to get the local news off the internet, for some reason, I now  have full access. Perusing the headlines, my original suspicions are confirmed--the printed version is a waste of paper and money (mine). Free is good!

Hey Future! How are you today? I wanted to thank you for replying to my discussion. I appreciate your thoughts.

Well, wish you the best.

I liked it (your poem)!

As to "Alonzo Archimedes Future," I refer you to Gregory Peck's opus, Capt. Newman, MD, which featured Eddie Albert as the above-mentioned Mr. Future, though Albert's character was more conventionally known as Army Col. Norval Algate Bliss.

An odd flick here and there, but worth your time.

Your comments on my post are much appreciated. I've decided I'm not going to jump into the deep end of philosophical analysis of  the subject(s). "Shallow Hal" is my mantra!

Hi Future
Welcome to this world of rationality and peace, where the application of pure common sense has proved to be enough to lead to the open freethinking wisdom common to non-believers.
