Aye, Caesar, And Not Yet Gone

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 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 So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it!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.

While in India, I had a signmaker make a canvas banner that reads, "REMEMBER YOU ARE MORTAL". I hung it up in my cubicle at Salon.

Some prankster has placed a sticky note reading "PROBABLY" between "ARE" and "MORTAL".
