Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

I realize that I'm an ignorant savage, but this just sounds stupid: Passengers can book passage Sept. 27 for luxury Titanic voyage
Party like there's no tomorrow at Beaker Bash 3. The benefit for the McWane Center will take its theme from the new 7,500-square-foot exhibit "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit."

Each guest will receive a boarding pass with the actual name of a Titanic passenger. It will be later in the evening of merrymaking that guests will find out if they are among survivors - or not.

The proper attire for the Sept. 27 crossing on the Titanic is the elaborate period dress of first-class passengers or the threadbare clothing of a steerage passenger. [...]
Were it one of my relatives who died, I don't know that I would appreciate a bunch of folks raising money using the loss of my relative as a source of their evening's merrymaking.
