Big Head Press

Number 400, January 7, 2007

"Clumsily, the world's thinking mammals move towards liberty."



Four-hundred times, now, the editor of this eMagazine has sat down and assembled an issue. From Issue Number 230, that's been me (unofficially editor until Issue Number 246). That's 170 issues! Golly!

I hope you all had a very merry holiday! Ours was very merry thanks to our daughter and son-in-law who provided lots of presents, and to several very generous readers who enabled us to pay our bills so we could enjoy the holidays with electricity and other such luxuries of life. You know who you are! Thank you!

Join in supporting this Reader-Supported publication for the next 400-issues by tossing some spare cash our way:

Winter is here in the mountains—snow, ice, and bitter cold. Makes me irritable and grumpy. Ah well, there's always something. Y'all be good, ya hear?

Werewolves Out, Vampires In
by L. Neil Smith
From the beginning, I was a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I also appreciated Forever Knight and Blade. Lately, I've enjoyed Underworld and Underworld: Evolution. So I'm a little chagrined) to admit that it took me this long to recognize the situation we're in.

To Secure the Blessings of Liberty
by Andrew G. Eggleston Sr.
Let me preface this weeks article by way of a bit of personal history; Twenty-Four years ago, when I was Fifteen (just about Sixteen), I was given a book to read by Johon Fritz, a good friend of mine who was a couple of years my senior. He and I were science-fiction fans and comic book enthusiasts, so it was no surprise for him to recommend or even give me a book (he was always a bit ahead of me on the learning curve)—but I couldn't quite pronounce the title of this one and there was a gorilla on the cover dressed and standing like a human being.

New Rules For Stating The Obvious
by Jonathan David Morris
George Bush recently described America's performance in the Iraq War like this: "We're not winning, we're not losing." This means we're losing.

Voting Our Conscience
by Jean Alexander
I celebrated the outcome of our last election. Celebrated and reveled in the message I had trouble believing we could deliver. Voting one's conscience seemed to have gone out of style. Anger, fear and blind obedience to one's party seemed the rule. I was surprised. Now my question is, can voting one's conscience return to vogue? Can we avoid merely shifting to the "other" party but rather look at issues and candidates individually, for what they stand?
