The Nossiter Net is cast  to snare some of  the riper rascalities of the day.  Comments?  Send a letter to the editor.

A holy woman tells a true believer
That up is down and black is white.
He truly must believe her
Or go to hell for being right.

An unsavory old political hack
Confiscates your means to live
And to his pals hands all your jack
We allow it because he’s conservative.

Work will truly set us free
The idle rich are slaves.
A billboard is lovely as a tree
All saints are knaves.

There’s utility in tchotchkes
And nutrition in sugar buns.
And a Marxist with the Trotskies
Really has the runs.

A NOTE TO READERS
There was nothing new at The Nossiter Net between March 3rd and April 26th,  nearly eight weeks.  The reason:  tech sabotage. Yahoo Geocities, the host for this site, denied access for the entire period.  At one point, they even managed to lose all the files.  In many discussions with Yahoo staff, no clear explanation was forthcoming.  No one seemed able to fix the problem.  Ruling out the possibility of Dubbya’s revenge, I finally wrote to Mr. Terry Semel, Chairman and CEO of Yahoo! Inc and described the ordeal the page had undergone since the beginning of March.  A week later, a helpful Yahooo engineer named Jason called.  He had my letter before him.  Though he couldn’t do the repairs on on the spot, he promised a fix by the next day.  That was April 26th, nearly two months after shutting me down in the first place.

The Nossiter Net apologizes, which is more than I can say for Yahoo Geocities.
