And some scan lines, too:
The Civil War is still going on, but it's ending tonight. Though there will be any number of sesquicentennial observances going on for the next four years, and a new Robert Redford movie coming out next week about the Lincoln conspirators. I might throw a few bucks towards that, bedbugs be damned.
Yes, a friend of mine put the fear of bedbugs into me so I don't go to the movies anymore. Then again, I freely go to the opera. Perhaps I'll pick up a better class of bloodsuckers there.
