I have tried to not make political posts of late, because durn but people get riled up... That plus the letters I'm always getting about my foul language are just two things I don't really care about. But I am so proud of us today. The health care reform bill may be, as a friend of mine just said, as watered down as a beer in a Utah bar, but it's something. A start. I am glad that the screaming naysayers don't have all the control all the time. only, say, 95%.....

As Tiny Tim said, God B...

... But last minute announcement: I'll be reading as part of tonight's In the Flesh series at the appropriately named Happy Ending Lounge, at 302 Broome. Its from 8 to 10, but I've been advised people should try to get there by 7:30 if they want a seat. There'll be a bondage rope expert and a feminist porn star reading there, too, among others, so it ought to be a fun night. Come one, come all!

PS To the person in the comments who thought that because I had an affair, ergo, I didn't finish ...

I'm going to be on it. Today. Actually, we filmed it last week... The creepy thing is that I sort of actually liked her. Is that weird?[image error]

Our beloved Robert - known to readers of "Cleaving" and the Epilogue of "J&J" - died on Sunday. He was 11 or 12 years old, a dear, dear animal that we were lucky enough to share our lives with for 6 years. The very best dog that ever there was. Eric and I are destroyed, of course, and I've only now felt up to posting this.

Of course, losing an animal doesn't rank up there with King Lear on the tragedy scale, empirically speaking, but those of you out there who have gone through this know ho...

But this year I'm holding on to mine like a life line. I won't go into the specifics other than to say that they include the usual StopDrinkingStopSmokingGetInShape sorts of of things, as well as one or two others more particular to my situation, all of which could be contained under the rubric of "Quit trying to the same things and expecting different results."

What about you guys? How's you thinkin' about this new decade?[image error]

All right, guys. I'm going to be at Tom Mylan's extraordinary store, The Meat Hook, in Williamsburg, Bklyn, tonight at 7:30, reading and drinking and eating pig heart. You should all come. Usually my readings are relatively staid because when you're at Barnes & Noble, you can't really depend on folks wanting to hear about gutting animals and horrific sex. But the folks at The Meat Hook can take it, so I'm takin' off the gloves...

As a little fore-taste, here's an interview I did with Tom's...
