"Oh, thank you for calling. I have been looking forward to your call. May I interest you in a sculpture or portrait of your family member or home or your favorite pet? You can send me a photograph and a check for five hundred dollars and I will be happy to mail you an original piece of artwork. So what will it be, pal, the sculpture or the painting? And when would you like delivery? If you are not interested in art right now; I have a sofa, in pretty good shape, in my garage. I would like to get rid of it and I could let you have it for fifty bucks." - Zelda Morgan who looks forward to every telephone solicitor's phone call as a golden opportunity to self-promote and/or clean out the garage. From Zelda's handbook, Zen, and the Art of Getting By in the Project for the New American Century, a Practical Guide to Fascist Oppression.

Editor's Note: The following is a guest column by Anita Beer who is filling in for Zelda Morgan in her absence. Today is "Talk Like Bill O'Reilly Day." September 26, 2003. So talk like Bill O'Reilly or just shut up.

Do we have mental health coverage on our health policy, by the way?

Create Peace!


Dear Zelda,

I should have known!  I was beginning to wonder if she was holding you hostage for a raise.

Mental health coverage?  No.

But Viagra is covered under our prescription plan-not birth control pills-go figure.

It just seems to good to be true that the CIA would want an investigation done of the White House.  Maybe, just maybe, they are pissed that the Bushies played illegal politics by outing one of their agents. -Lisa
