been too long since the Dowbrigade has visited Holland, one of the most
beautiful and enlightened countries on the planet. This
picture appeared today on Adam
Curry’s Weblog, and it all came back to
me like a dream of satiated desires. Perhaps after returning from Ecuador,
Amsterdam will be our next foreign destination.
However, we have a couple of questions in the meantime about this lovely
painting. What are those curious crops in the foreground, marked with
Crossbones, the universal icon for poison? Frankenfood? And why does
this lovely lass have a bandage over her median cubital vein? Has she just given
blood? Had a transfusion? And what’s with the smokestack in the background?
If Adam, the artist, or anyone else has any ideas, inquiring minds thirst
In addition, anyone knowing of any Dutch university lecturships in Blogging
or English Language and Literature, or even a conference we could attend
to write off the trip, please contact this correspondent….
