Bagpiping up

Comments Off on Bagpiping up

I’m a sucker for bagpipes, perhaps because my mother’s mother was a member of Scotland’s Cameron clan.  In a former life, I likely went down in the highlands as the bagpipes played and I breathed my last for the old sod. Or something. That’s why the bagpiper at Friday’s memorial service for Sen. Robert C. […]

Comments Off on Calling Iron Baby

After a long, hard day of slogging over vats of words and assembly lines pushing out dipthongs and metaphors at the Paragraph Factory, I needed a break, some uplift. Just then, Iron Baby appeared in the window in front of me ….
