Pale Blue Auto-Mobile
You need no ticket to make a place for yourself here where humor, black and otherwise, comes to you from the stage where the human comedy itself is being played, its performance trumping the things dark and tragic and found in the world of literature.

Charles Newman, 67, Writer and Literary Journal Editor, Dies - New York Times: "(Praised by critics for his mordant wit and pyrotechnic use of language, Mr. Newman reveled in the knowing, self-referential asides that were a hallmark of postmodern style. Thus, it is only fitting to interrupt his obituary here to explain that 'tephramancy' � also spelled 'tephromancy' and pronounced TEFF-ruh-man-see � means divination by means of ashes, especially those from an altar or ruined temple.)"
