12/02/2005: Tis the season to celebrate....
and Mad Kane is celebrating, among other things, Randy "Duke" Cunningham's conviction for conspiracy and tax evasion (also, "An Ode to Bob Woodward" and a limerick about GOP liars and the l'affaire Plame; audio version available, too).
Also, congrats to Mad for her upcoming appearance on WFUV's "Cityscape" show in New York City (Saturday, 12/3 at 0730 (that's 7:30 AM for those of you who didn't do your bit for King and Country *grin*) Eastern Standard Time, 90.7 on the FM dial in the NYC area, if you're there; apparently you can also hear it via internet stream off the WFUV website or via archived audio stream if 0730 Eastern is too early on a Saturday for you to get up). As long as I'm mentioning Mad's celebrity status, I'll let her know (since she does read This Humble Blog occasionally) that I see her poems and limericks regularly on the Bush Watch website.
And from the interesting coincidences department: WFUV shares the same broadcast frequency as KWMU in St. Louis, and both are NPR affiliated public radio stations connected with urban universities (WFUV: Fordham, and KWMU: the University of Missouri St. Louis, one of my almae matres (if I'm correctly remembering my HS Latin, which is a dubious assumption)). Actually, given that public/community/non-commercial radio stations tend to be segregated towarde the lower end of the FM broadcast spectrum, that's not such an interesting coincidence as I'm making it out, but what the hell. Why have a blog if you can't stretch a point into incomprehensibility from time to time? :-)
