Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Leonard called me at work to tell me to read Dear Raed. Salam Pax is okay! Thank God, he's okay! He's alive! Just thinking of it brings tears to my eyes.

Update (10:50 am): I called Leonard back to relay the equally important info that Forrest Whitaker, the host of the new Twilight Zone show on UPN, was walking around on Telegraph. It looked like he and his entourage were scouting shooting locations on Telegraph. He didn't scowl at all that I could see. Man, he was the only good thing about Phone Booth.
