“Don’t call no doctor when you just feel like cryin’…”

Its song of origin (“Goodnight Vienna”) isn’t much, but that line is one of my all-time favorite John Lennon lyrics. I’m about to burrow deeply into the next *Doctor Fate* script, and it may be a week or so before I resurface, but I wanted to get that post about my health out of the […]

The blog is back. Enormous thanks to Sandon at Dreamhost Customer Support for patience and persistence above and beyond. If you’re looking for a place to park your web site, I recommend Dreamhost whole-heartedly. I’m still under the gun with DOCTOR FATE, so it may take a few days to finalize the blog cosmetics. Bear […]
