Random pithy quote: Wouldn't it be strange if the God who made His people free and happy should then give them commands that enslaved them again? Doesn't it seem more likely that what He gave them were rules for remaining free and happy? (Mark Finley)

      Man... I read one of the Random Pithy Quotes and realized just how stale that list has gotten.
      I need to scrape up some new ones and replace that list.

      I haven't been hit by a bus, or anything quite so drastic...
      Still running the site, this latest gap just turned out to be a really bad decision on my part (unlike the previous hiatus).
      I saw that Avalanche was from a short-story collection and decided that it wouldn't last too long. It's still snipping four months later!!
      And I didn't have the email for Tim Powers for Expiration Date (I like to get authors' OK before collecting the snippets), so I let that slide...
      And there was nothing else.
      Of course, it seems that one of the two new pieces on Eric's site is another from Tim, so if anyone can forward me his email (or forward mine to him), I'd appreciate getting his permission to re-snip.
