During the latest national crisis (not that one, the one where my laptop was in the shop for a month) I was unable to update this front page. I continued to post new items but those entries were not indexed here.

For the foreseeable short term this page will include a section of items that may have been missed.

This temporary feature bears a silent dedication to the reader with the nondescript telemarketer name who brought the issue to my attention.

The Jackie obsession. When I wore the pink suit in 1972, people either loved it or hated it. Getting a reaction was more powerful than merely gaining approval.
