Kevin Clash isn’t Elmo, nor is Elmo Kevin Clash. But putting that aside: it’s interesting that his exoneration gets no major press, which his accusation did. Hope he can go back to Sesame Street now.

I used to work at the Walmart Home Office, where the Saturday Morning Meeting is a long-standing cultural tradition, often featuring celebrity guests. Many employees bring their children, and never more than when Kevin Clash appeared a while back along with Elmo. Many celebs would get flown in on a company jet late the night before, and sign a few autographs after the meeting before hitting the door to get the heck out of Arkansas as fast as possible. Not Kevin Clash. His response to the overwhelming number of children who were there to see Elmo was to stay until every last child had an opportunity to greet, and in most cases hug, their favorite resident of Sesame Street. Kevin Clash is an excellent person, and he takes the responsibility he has to children very seriously. I’m not surprised he has been exonerated and I will make sure everyone I know hears about it.

“But it was also clear that an all-round increase in wealth threatened the destruction — indeed, in some sense was the destruction — of a hierarchical society. In a world in which everyone worked short hours, had enough to eat, lived in a house with a bathroom and a refrigerator, and possessed a motor-car or even an aeroplane, the most obvious and perhaps the most important form of inequality would already have disappeared. If it once became general, wealth would confer no distinction. It was possible, no doubt, to imagine a society in which WEALTH, in the sense of personal possessions and luxuries, should be evenly distributed, while POWER remained in the hands of a small privileged caste. But in practice such a society could not long remain stable. For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance.”

As you can see by the photo there are two different source codes in this picture. The first one up in the right corner is from a file util.c which seems to be written for an old HTTPd web server by NCSA. You can find here the whole soure file. The second one instead, I haven’t yet found the source but it looks like some utility to use fax printers or something like that (I beg your pardon if I’m wrong :3)

Both source codes don’t quite fit the situation for me, you just can’t track down Jason Bourne’s kick ass partner by running a old program which converts plus characters into spaces or manages fax printers :D

“Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk.”

Words by Marcy Klauber and Music by Harry Stoddard (1928)

The Ford on the River Rea at Hawkesley Mill - about half way between Northfield and Longbridge.  This was as far as I felt comfortable riding my bike with friends without telling anybody where we were going.  I don’t remember it being so green or the river being so sparkly, but then in the 1970s Europe’s largest car factory was probably not helping the environment.  We would dare each other to ride up or down the river.  I seem to remember it went into a tunnel somewhere, it reminded me of the drain in Land of the Giants when the little people met the spiders.
