I don't think anyone's bothered to
clip coupons of the financial kind
for the last couple of decades; if
I'm not totally out of the loop on
RAH's progress, it's all done with
book entries. 

How does one receive payments on an
Internet Bearer Bond, anyway?  Will
it be a matter of clicking coupons?

Oh, you meant the other kind.  Well,
I guess there _are_ outsourcers:
<http://www.trieng.com/coupons.html>
but buying coupons doesn't give one
the same opportunity to meditate on
"measure twice, cut once" as does a
a bead run on coupons self-clipped.

(Sorry for going on in this vein; I
was bitterly disappointed that the
post I thought had the title "Rove,
Nordquist, etc." turned out to be a
regular political forward, and not
a promise for future RNC letters to
be entertainingly cryptosensical)

along the lines of eminenya?

I ran across the following song when
finding out just what a "Wobbly" was,
and thought it might have relevance
to the War On Errorism:

I don't know what tune Mr. Keenan had
in mind, but it can be sung along to
the "battle hymn of the republic".
