politics, Kerry Edwards

quote of the day

Shared on a mailing list I'm on, this quote is from David Bonderman, the founder and managing partner of Texas Pacific Group, an investment firm, and a man who supported George W. Bush both for president in 2000 and for governor of Texas. Bonderman made this quote when it was announced that he was supporting John Kerry:

"He's turning out to be the worst president since Millard Fillmore -- and that's probably an insult to Millard Fillmore."

writing stuff

This week, Paramount officially approved my manuscript for Star Trek: I.K.S. Gorkon Book 3: Enemy Territory, and we also settled on a type treatment for the cover, which I love. (I really disliked the type treatment on the first two books, so I'm grateful for the new look.) The book will be out in April 2005.

I also got a piece of definite news and a piece of possible news today. The possible news will be great news if it becomes definite. Either way, the rest of my year is going to be very busy -- if the possible news happens, very busy -- but all in a good way.

Vague, I know, but things are up in the air right now. I promise to be more forthcoming as soon as I can.

NYY, melky

it's SO pretty!

Yankees win 8-6, coming from behind. Down 6-4 in the ninth, Gary Sheffield hits a monster home run to the deepest part of the field to tie it. Then Alex Rodriguez hits a two-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th to win it.

Meanwhile, down Tampa Bay way, the Red Sox were up 4-1 when Bronson Arroyo loaded the bases with nobody out, then gave up a grand-slam homer to Toby Hall, who'd never hit a grand slam. The score never changed -- Devil Rays 5, Red Sox 4.

The Yankees now have a nine-game lead on the BoSox.

I love it....
