    everyone knows the classic Howard Beal monologues from Network but I was reminded while watching Emily of just what a gift Chayefsky had for expressing complex political ideas in the midst of an ostensible romantic comedy A WWII black comedy set in London this may be the nerviest take on war ever even eclipsing Preston Sturge s great Hail the Conquering Hero Take this scene where James Garner as a self professed coward leads a grieving wife and mother to see an alternate way to understand war It s not war that s insane you see it s the morality of it It s not greed and ambition that makes wars it s goodness Wars are always fought for the best of reasons for liberation or manifest destiny always against tyrany and always in the interest of humanity So far this war we ve managed to butcher some 10 000 000 humans in the interest of humanity Next war it seems we ll have to destroy all of man in order to preserve his damn dignity I don t trust people who make bitter reflections about war Mrs Barham It s always the generals with the bloodiest records who are the first to shout what a hell it is It s always the war widows who lead the Memorial Day parades We shall never end wars Mrs Barham by blaming it on ministers and generals or warmongering imperialists or all the other banal bogeys It s the rest of us who build statues to those generals and name boulevards after those ministers The rest of us who make heroes of our dead and shrines of our battlefields We wear our widow s weeks like nuns Mrs Barham and perpetuate war by exalting its sacrifices My brother died at Anzio an

    taken me over two years to finally find enough time to read Quicksilver The Confusion and The System of the World I know many folk who have struggled to read these books compared to Cryponomicon which was infinitedly more user friendly but it really does start to kick into overdrive around 200 pages into the first book The main thing is that Stephenson writes novels of ideas and you have

    have been 65 today Doesn t seem like that much to ask does it I included this in her memorial service and it killed so to speak Still the best poem to read at your mom s funeral evah Let Evening Come Let the light of late afternoon shine through chinks in the barn moving up the bales as the sun moves down Let the cricket take up chafing as a woman takes up her needles and her yarn Let evening come Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned in long grass Let the stars appear and the moon disclose her silver horn Let the fox go back to its sandy den Let the wind die down Let the shed go black inside Let evening come To the bottle in the ditch to the scoop in the oats to air in the lung let evening come Let it come as it will and don t be afraid God does not leave us comfortless so let evening come Jane Kenyon Posted by krudman at 01 45 PM Comments 0 TrackBack September 18 2005 Even my six year old knows for sure I love how he thinks he may need a break

    myself well how appropriate that your book starts with a story called Envy or Yiddish in America I would assume that there was much consternation when the story was published regarding the obvious similarities between I B Singer and Ostrover Edelshtein s nemesis But I have to say that it was The Pagan Rabbi and The Dock Witch which I found so compelling Strange and lovely and scary This interview
