Passing the Pig

I once wrote a rant about baby boomers in the hash. I called it “The Pig in the Python.” Today I turned in my final time card, and now I am the pig.

So what does this retired baby boomer plan to do? Hell, I don’t know, but one thing’s for sure, I’m going to [...]


Header Headaches

My colleagues at On-On Magazine asked me for a “Half Mind graphic,” I hope so that they can plug my weblog in future issues. But that creates a problem. The original Half-Mind Weblog logo was just a variation on the one I designed for the Half-Mind Catalog:

When They Mention the Hash for No Good Reason, There’s Probably a Good Reason

Now this is interesting . . . a news article about a Cornwall general practitioner who’s gotten himself in trouble with the UK doctors’ regulatory body and is now on professional probation.

What’s so interesting about that? This paragraph:

Dr Dalton, a married man in his early 50s, practises at the islands’ health centre and [...]
