Best known for his Berserker series, which is very good, this is a very skilled and versatile writer.



His "Dracula" books are fascinating reads, and he is rare among the writers of this genre to write effectively from different viewpoints.



His "Empire of the East" novel is one of the great fantasy-sci-fi achievements in the genre.

I just reread this on vacation, and discovered again the nuances of this very fine writer. Empire of the East is one of the great sci-fi fantasy achievements blending science and magic in a thoroughly believable manner.

In a crowded field, Maxine Waters probably can win the award as being the dumbest politician in office today. She bests such rigorous competition as Patty Murry, Barbara Boxer, Carolyn Maloney and so, so many more. Congrats, Max!

I have my doubts that she is a true blonde; however, I fell for that crooked smile many, many years ago.

Small, slightly eclectic bookstore in the Mission District that appears to be having a perpetual 65% off sale. Not a big selection, but some interesting stuff.

Worth a look if you're in the neighborhood.

Above average sports bar on the corner of 4th and Mission, with a good selection of taps and something of a local feel to the place.

Had a Prohibition IPA and a Widmer wheat while watching a bit of the Euro Cup.

This brew pub is in a great location, down on the Embarcadero about half a mile or so from the ball park, and its pleasant and bright inside.

That's where it stops, however. The beer is below average to poor, and runs mostly to lagers and pilsners, with a particularly nasty wheat beer that tastes like it has apricots in it.

The bartender when we were there was obviously the runaway winner of the "Worst Barkeep in the City" award, and despite the place being 3/4 empty couldn't be bothered to serve anyone unless you fired a flare.

Didn't bother with eating there, although the menu looked interesting. We had better places to drink.

A taqueria on Kearny that claims to have served the first burrito in San Francisco back in 1961. Whatever the truth of that it serves a big, tasty burrito made quick and cheap.

He's a Yankee and a prima donna, so that's worth two stars, but I don't see much else to worry about.

Like all professional athletes, they are paid because they put asses in the seats and thereby make money for the club owners or shareholders.

This seems entirely correct to me.

One of the modern giants of American film. Not that he hasn't had more than his share of clunkers, but unlike those of lesser directors those have been the result of him stretching his art, rather than going through the motions.

His signatures, particularly the overlapping dialogue, the background mumbling, and the depth of scenes, are matched by few others.

I don't really know how to rate Ed Wood.

On the one hand he is the justifiable front runner for the "Worst Director All Time" award. On the other, his work is so unintentionally surreal and hilarious, its impossible not to be entertained.

Pretty bad, and overweeningly self-indulgent.

Should stick to acting.

At his best he touches brilliance, at his worst he's a mundane schlockmeister. Often flirts with self-parody which is a dangerous path for a director.

Must be chasing them to Dollar General down the road.

I don't think most people have a problem with a program (even if not through the government) that helps people get back on their feet, for instance after an extended illness or an accident. But that's not where the majority of the problems are. I personally know people that complain about not having money for bills and not being able to afford insurance that have the new car they didn't really need in the driveway, the big screen TV in the living room, the latest video game system with the latest games in the kids bedroom, etc.


If people refuse to budget their money, refuse to prioritize, and refuse to recognize that the unexpected can happen, I shouldn't have to pay the price for it.

I'd vote for him, though maybe Ambassador to the UN would be a better job.

Probably. The same thing happened in 2004 when the election was pretty much set after the Iowa Caucus. Bush was running unopposed and Kerry had been anointed. Republicans stayed home and Dems went to Republican voting places and wrote in Democrats. All it says to me is some people care more about toying with national elections than their state and local government.

Gee, here's an idea.


We use our own oil, create jobs right here in the United States, stop sending tons of money overseas, and watch as energy costs drop. In the meantime, we continue to develop alternative sources that don't cut into our food supply and don't pass bills that end up making things cost more than they already do.

This guy has a lot of fans, excluding me. Maybe I should like him as he was born the same year as I. I have always pegged him as a self important windbag. Of course, some people may say the same about me. (chortle)

This would be a challenging and unique occupation in the USA, at least.

This would be interesting in the right area. A lawyer can work in many areas.

Game one: Paul Pierce eserves recognition for his "Wllis Reed' performance after leaving the game with a sprained knee, and dropping 18 on the Lakers and hitting 3 trifectas. Whether you think he was faking/exaggerating the injury or not, he helped the Celtics in the game.


Game Two: Paul continues his oustanding play and dominates the way that Kobe was expected to and hits two clutch free throws to kill the Lakers 4q really.


Game Three: Paul gets into foul trouble and has a horrible shooting night.



Game 4: plays great D on Kobe and plays great second half as Celtics make their comeback

This is French cuisine, GenghisTheHun style. Please view the public service clip.

Completely underpaid. This position is responsible for about as much as can be expected of any job, yet makes a miniscule amount of money for what is essentially a major CEO.
