San Francisco (Associunited Press).                      

On January 29, 2001, A new and rededicated website came into being. The move was generated by a degree of attempted  censorship by the previous, and now absent, management office. Let them remain nameless from now until forever time. We will now begin the concentration on   the new site and we hope to surprise and delight you regularly. See the release below for upcoming details.

Hemp / Your Body. The Coalition to Save Hemp ( reports that the Drug Enforcement Administration has stepped up its efforts to squash the use of hemp products in the United states. In a Nov. 30 release The DEA excluded "what have historically been considered legitimate uses of `hemp'" -- for example, paper, rope and clothing -- but extended its ban to any tetrahydrocannabinols that enter the human body." The coalition reports that this would include hemp shampoos, soaps, and other personal care products. Why? People who use these products are likely to cause confusion by turning up positive on tests for marijuana use.

Don't want to confuse the DEA, do you?...

Heh heh...


Percy Bysshe Shelley


I met a traveler from an antique land

Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,

Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed.

And on the pedestal these words appear:

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.




Horace Smith

Horace Smith composed this sonnet on 27 December 1817, during an evening

sonnet-writing session with P.B. Shelley:

On a Stupendous Leg of Granite, Discovered Standing by Itself in the Deserts

of Egypt, with the Inscription Inserted Below.

In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,

Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws

The only shadow that the Desert knows.

"I am great Ozymandias," saith the stone,

"The King of kings: this mighty city shows

The wonders of my hand." The city's gone!

Naught but the leg remaining to disclose

The sight of that forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some hunter may express

Wonder like ours, when through the wilderness

Where London stood, holding the wolf in chase,

He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess

What wonderful, but unrecorded, race

Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

Cited by Guy Davenport (of the Univ. of Kentucky) in his

article "Ozymandias" (on the New York Times op-ed page a

few years back). Davenport concludes his article:

"Genius may also be knowing how to title a poem."



Like a million tiny bubbles rising through the ocean

All and Everything we know inside one bubble

Of the other bubbles

Indeed, of the Ocean itself,

We know nothing."

___Arthur C. Clarke



In the the Future the word `ships' will mean spaceships,

except for a very brief moment, at the beginning of recorded

history, when men and women of Earth sailed the Oceans in

ships of wood and steel.
