(wondered about those ruby slippers...)  Seriously, having had some
rather major dental surgeries, I am sincerely glad you're on the mend.
>(Now let's see who actually falls for that one.)

"Look, it's Halley's Comet!"

WooHoo!  Knew you could do it!  (and way to go, Buddy...<G>)
>The second season of Jeremiah will debut on Showtime on October 10th at 10:00
>p.m. (a much better time slot than 10:45) with "Letters from the Other Side,
>Part One," and I commend you to this season whole-heartedly.  I think it's
>stronger than the previous season.  There's more of a clean through-line to the

>13, so there's a real sense of continuity there.  And this year we're joined by
>Sean Astin, currently appearing in the Lord of the Rings movies.

Looking forward to it - finally! (no, sir;  that was NOT a slap at
>(As stated, I've opted not to return if there's a third season, but a) that has
>nothing to do with the quality of this season, which is terrific, and b) what
>some people, from the postings I've seen, don't seem to quite get is that this

Not to push for information that is really none of my business, but is
the parting going to be, err, amicable?
>To the many questions that have arisen here of late...yes, as I mentioned

>be too far off...but that neither of them are series.  And that's all I'm going

Pointedly NOT going there...<G>
<Comic stuff snipped>

Any news from the "RS" front with Top Cow?  Or still the same ol' same

"...A Mongol on the roof - a most unusual sight;
     It may not mean a thing - but, then again, it might!"
 Sayings of - Nauseating, Y.T.
