John --

Have you turned this Nietzsche list into an Ad Hoc (HERD of COWS) committee?
Since you are busy for Christmas, perhaps this vampirish fete should be on
New Year's Eve, patterned on one of Nietzsche's famous year-end wrap ups,
celebrating the slide downhill to the Millenium. Your impeccable taste in
music leaves me modestly requesting an addition to the program: Leonard
Cohen, "The Future."  

Give me back my broken night 
my secret room my secret life
it's lonely here
there's no one left to torture

Alas, perhaps the rest of that piece is too cheerful.

Having just spent seven days without electricity in stormy California, I'll
pass on the dark part, sign me up only to turn to dust at daybreak....
