Yukio Mishima Died in 1970
The translated novels I have read by him are; The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea, and his four volume series called the The Sea of Fertility consisting of Spring Snow, Runaway Horses, The Temple of Dawn, and the Decay of the Angel. They are interesting works, if they were not I would have never made it thru the four book tetralogy of the Sea of Fertility.
His suicide seems by Western Standards to be gruesome. Besides the hara kiri tradition of sticking a knife in your belly it calls for having a second person present to witness it and to decapitate you. Masakatsu Koga was to performed the capitation but failed to complete it so Hiroyasu Koga had to complete the task. Now if you are laying there with a knife in your belly I would think the least thing you would want is for someone to screw up the final part that actually kills you. There is a poorly written article call I cut off the head of Yukio Mishima some may be interested in.

Anyone who has read this blog knows I feel the minimum wage should be $10.00 an hour in Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. See my post of 1/19/06 - Maryland Minimum Wage.

The French just don't get any respect
2- Type in "french military victories", without the quotes
3- Instead of hitting "Search" hit "I'm feeling Lucky"
4- Tell your friends before the people at Google fix it
Now this brings up the whole subject of gift giving. I feel when you give a gift for whatever purpose you give it away and give up any say in what is done with the gift. If you give money to someone and they blow it on alcohol, it is not for you to complain or whine about it - it was gift. If the Christmas present you took weeks selecting is stored in the attic of the gift receiver or you see it in that person's next yard sale - well it is the gift receiver possession, for him to do with however he wants. Go off in a corner and sulk and remember it was a gift. You can of course reconsider ever giving that person another damn thing but the gift was a gift.
JFK was shot today
Today President Kennedy is portrayed as a popular President loved by the people. It wasn't so. The simple fact that he was shot should prove that point. As I recall when it was announced he was shot a classroom of teenagers in Texas applauded the announcement. Because of his youth he was popular with people in their 30's, however the people younger than 30 and the people older than 40 had different thoughts. I don't recall being impressed by him altho he did have good speech writers and to this day the quote of "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country" is one of my favorites. As history has proved out he was a whore chaser and who can believe or trust anyone who can't maintain the trust of a marriage commitment. I view President Clinton in this same light.

Drainage Pond for Delmar Storage
In Delmar if you have a swimming pool you have to have a 4 foot fence surrounding it. Yet this pond has been in Delmar about 6 months and there is no requirement or no concern to have any kind of fence other than the black plastic strip for environmental concerns. Why is that? Aren't you just as dead if you drown in a swimming pool as you are if you drown in a drainage pond?
Thanks for the Haymans
