    Yeah that's great. It has a nice illustraition too.

    I bet that first drive back to the lab caused some crazy stories around the dinner table from anyone who witnessed you and your archi trailer.

    This deserves its own thread so I moved it. Great job -- great imagery! Neil made it in -- too funny. Well done!

    :notworth: :oshea:

    Neil should clip that one out and hang it on his wall. Where, with luck, his delightful-yet-evil assistant will tear it down and send it on an epic globe-trotting adventure. Assuming, of course, that Neil has enough friends/fans to make that work. OK... bad idea. :twisted:

    Two things:
    1) what is this 'delightful' that you refer to?
    2) what is this 'delightful' that you refer to?

    My concession, evil indeed, but in a delightful way.

    She would be sooooooo nice, if only she could find it in her pointy little heart to receive and return to me my Neil Diamond clipping. One day she will appreciate him - and her sooty sometimes-poisoned heart will at last find the same peace that others have found; my concern is that it will come too late. She doesn't quite appreciate what this man has meant to me (lyric wise) .... as he's got me through some tough times he has.

    As a complete aside, all jokes aside, isn't it nice that Neil finally got a worthy mention in the NYT? I think it's great! Go Neil! You rock. You always will!

    Hello Steve,

    Thanks for writing a great essay, a fine mix of personality and advocacy. The NYTimes needs all the good prose and integrity it can get. (They probably received a letter or two from martinets outraged at your "endorsement" of smoking and drinking.)

    I'm sure that Neil Diamond appreciated your shout-out. The new album he's working on is generating a significant buzz, and a mention on the Times's editorial page surely won't hurt.

    I wonder where Neil is?

    Cheers,
    Clem, Master Villain

    According to announcements I just read, Neil's about to be in Los Angeles. Oh, you meant THAT Neil... last I heard he was still in Monterey... but I believe Hollywood might be his next stop...

    IF certain Monterey folks are done entertaining him, that is...

    Thanks for getting that in the paper - after two weeks of internet-less life, I had forgotten that I should be spending all my time on TONMO, until I saw the piece.
