Checking my referrer logs I notice that just as many people have been coming to Bad Samaritan looking for naked pictures of Betty White and Sally Field as on any other week. Last week, just as many people wanted to learn how to get even with their ex-girlfriends. And just as many people (if not more) are looking for information about the world’s largest penis.

I guess I’ll take that as a sign to get back to normal around here, even if I feel anything but normal. Things where you are may have gone back to pretty much the way they were before, but here in New York, you can’t help but be constantly reminded of what has happened. Life has changed here.

I turned on the T.V. to catch the Simpsons last night, forgetting that Fox no longer has a broadcast tower. I then tried to call some friends, but was told by a computerized voice that, “all circuits were busy.” I’ve finally heard from some people who had been trying to reach me all week, and they said that every time they called another mechanical voice told them the area was “experiencing tornadoes.” Amanda and I decided we needed an escape, so we headed out to rent a movie. When we walked into the video store I noticed a sign saying that you couldn’t play lotto because the system was down as a result of last Tuesday.

These all may seem like little things and really, they are. Considering the stories I’ve been hearing from people who were in and around the World Trade Center Tuesday morning or who have been helping in the rescue efforts since then, I have nothing to complain about. Not being able to watch Malcolm in the Middle is of no comparison to having to perform last rights on a leg.

So, regardless of the way I feel, I declare that starting now, the Bad Samaritan will return to its old, irreverent self. And you’ll excuse me if I have to take a moment to rant every once in a while, wont you?

I think we are all excused due to the circumstances...But going back to Bad Samaritan "normal" is good...I am working that over myself! So, do your best as you usually do, we will still be here....

Buildings fall. A nation goes to war. Porn survives.

Does that put porn on par with cockroaches? "In the time of the nuclear winter, the world was filled with roaches and porn..."
