    I always hated that ending on the Twilight Zone episode. But the new BigFurHat Zone ending is perfect!

    I think that hydrogen bomb was dropped on purpose to put everybody out of their statist misery. Henry Bemis is truly in hell.

    So you spent some time watching the SyFy channel on New Year’s Day too, huh? 24-hour marathon of The Twilight Zone episodes. I was in 7th Heaven… oh no, wait… that’s was another program. I went to Willoughby… Willoughby, next stop, Willoughby!!!

    I liked your version of Burgess Meredith’s delight in finding all the books that would keep him company. You came up with an even better nightmare, Fur. Zero’s face on every page is suicide-inducing.

    Next stop… Willoughby.

    My favorite Mark Twain, alas, no longer appropriate in schools. Just like God. Ah well, you have a brave new world ahead of you youngsters. I hope you will handle it with care.

    This is a repeat I can’resist:

    Dear God, Why do you allow such terrible things to happen in our schools? Mary.

    My Dear Mary, I am not allowed in your schools, God.

    I indeed watched the Sci-Fy marathon.
    And There will be more BigFurHat Zones coming to a computer near you.
    Because, there’s always “room for one more, honey.”

    Sometimes I turn them upside down if I’m particularly cross.

    Lol! That is funnier than shit, well, until he opens the book anyway; that part is kind of sad. But the ending is great.

    MJA, I keep a Sharpie on me at all times, and I deface the damned things with the usual juvenile assortment; blacked out teeth, pencil thin moustaches and tiny little demon’s horns. That last look very apropos…

    A true liberal nuclear weapon brings us to the point where there’s no need for the Declaration of Independence, no need for the Bill of Rights, the Constitution…

    Okay, that third image did it… “bang the gardener.”

    I have the entire Twilight Zone collection on DVD’s. Every couple of years I watch them beginning to end in a really giant marathon.

    You can never get enough Twilight Zone.

    Witness if you will, a majority of a once great nation hoodwinked into facilitating their own distruction. There’s the signpost up ahead..!

    MJA — I rearranged, as much as I could, the entire history section of a downtown Seattle Barnes and Noble despite my sore, aching feet and complete exhaustion of Christmas shopping. Working against the Big Brother of panoptican technology, I reassigned all the communist bad actors posing as historians, relegating them to shelves no reasonable person, not even a self-styled intellectual book giver, would consider like the sections for people suffering from various neurotic disorders (aka the “self-help” remnants from the ’90′s).

    If someone wants a Howard Zinn Reader they’ll have to look behind the stacks of half-priced books related to people who are addicted to eating rust.

    I was looking for the Statue of Tyranny with Obamas head lying on the ground like the scene from Planet of the Apes.
