There is no new snow here, gang, but the ton of snow we still have from the other day is now frozen solid. It’s sunny here this morning, but incredibly cold. (18 degrees Fahrenheit.)
My own good news is that a flash memoir I wrote, Seminary Avenue, (960 words) and submitted a few months ago to a new small, no-profit press — Kintsugi Books — for possible inclusion in their upcoming collection, We Make Our Own Light, was accepted for publication yesterday by the publisher!
It’s a brand new market for me — they are an LGBTQ+ small press, located in the American Deep South. And I’m always really happy to sell a nonfiction, non-erotic piece of writing. Yay!
Which reminds me, I really, really want to thank whoever you people are out there who are buying my non-erotic historical novel about old Hollywood, Twilight of the Immortal. I got a royalty statement from Amazon yesterday and saw that, for some inexplicable reason, that novel was suddenly selling again! Another great big “yay!” — since I really, really love that book. Thanks, guys/gals.
Okay. Today is the Super Bowl.  followers are supposed to keep our eyes on the half-time show. Something, I have no idea what, could make it look like a “puppy show.”
I don’t have television, so I guess I will rely on w e t h e m e d i a on t e l e gr am for any potential live updates on that front. But I must say, gang, that the news, in general, has gotten almost eerily quiet over the last couple of days.
Even my general email address, which is usually absolutely overloaded with emails from both the R* pu bl i can and de * crat camps has been strangely sparse.
Hmmm. Wonder what’s up with that? More arr * sts?? Possible Internet outages? Pol i t i ci ans giving up and going home? A combination of all three?
I guess we’re gonna find out.
Some news items that are of interest, however.
The A Z State S * nate is going to have the el * ction officials of M a r i co p a County ar r * sted for obstruction of justice in the 2 0 2 0 e l* ct *ons. (I’m guessing it’s that death penalty-thingie for helping to r * g el* c t *ons that’s got those M a r i co p a County officials a little spooked and that’s likely why they’re hemming and hawing about coughing up the evidence the A Z State S * nate keeps asking for. To be fair, I’d probably feel the same way if I’d r * g g ed a na tional e l * c t * on…)
It’s looking like Tr **p’s team will be showing videos of D* m ocrats inciting violence as part of his im p ea c h ment defense. The complete article is here (and I cannot imagine the balls of steel these D*ms have; curiously, they must still think Tr **p is the legal pr e s * dent, since no one on Earth can im pe a ch a private citizen…)
Also!! Pay close attention to this one, gang!
The V* rology J ournal — the journal of D r F * u ci’s National Institute of H * a l th — published a peer-reviewed report back in 2005 (!!) declaring that ch ol o ro quine and hydro chl o r o quine are potent inhibitors of S A R S coro n a virus infection and spread…. The full article is here, but here is the “Conclusion” determined by the 8 scientists who worked on the article:
Chloroquine, a relatively safe, effective and cheap drug used for treating many human diseases including malaria, amoebiosis and human immunodeficiency virus is effective in inhibiting the infection and spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. The fact that the drug has significant inhibitory antiviral effect when the susceptible cells were treated either prior to or after infection suggests a possible prophylactic and therapeutic use.
Hmmm. That’s just so weird. I wonder why F * u ci forgot all about this research, done 15 years ago at his own institute?? And, in fact, stated the exact opposite instead. Perhaps he wanted to one day be arr * s t ed and possibly ex e c u t e d for crimes against humanity and he saw this as the quickest route to achieving that lofty goal. We can only guess, gang.
More ar r * s ts of truly horrific p*dos, nationwide. We’re getting there, folks. But we’ve still got a really long way to go.
All righty. Today at 1 pm, EST, the P * t r io t S t r eet f i ghter and cir st en w chat live on her new ch an nel on Y ** T *b*.
If you tried to join the chat last Sunday, you no doubt recall that it got so overrun with viewers that it kept crashing the link and more and more links had to be created. Luckily, she is back on Y ** T* b* for now, so all that should be taken care of.
Okay. Well, I am going to get to work here, gang. I’m writing a new short story for the kind folks in Sweden. Only about a month past my deadline… But, thankfully, they are patient there.
I hope you have a terrific Sunday, wherever you are in the world! Thanks for visiting. I love you guys. See ya.
