Fahrenheit 451 | It burned in 1851

U.S. Library of Congress catches fire; 

35,000 books burn

Born this day in 1927 | Mary Higgins Clark

The first four months of writing the book, my mental image is scratching with my hands through granite. My other image is pushing a train up the mountain, and it's icy, and I'm in bare feet.

Time Machine exists for a reason!

Greg Lake | 2010 Video
I Believe in Father Christmas [HQ Audio]

They said there'll be snow at christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin's birth
I remember one christmas morning
A winters light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that christmas tree smell
And their eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of christmas
They sold me a silent night
And they told me a fairy story
'till I believed in the israelite
And I believed in father christmas
And I looked at the sky with excited eyes
'till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful christmas
I wish you a brave new year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth
Hallelujah noel be it heaven or hell
The christmas you get you deserve

~4,483 US Heroes WON'T be home for Christmas

For some, and way too many, the "war in Iraq" will NEVER be over.

And what about PTSD?

Don't tell me that's not covered by insurance...
