Richard: "The 'man' just can't understand that some of us use salvia divinorum for medical reasons, such as when the world has us very bummed out and we need to feel that it's really full of beautiful dragons."

"Lawrence man arrested after assault with meat thermometer."
Chip: "The article does not elucidate, but it seems certain that this man was a zombie, albeit probably some sort of Eastside foodie zombie who demands his victims be properly cooked."
Lost is back, as all geeks know, and fanboys continue to debate whether the show is the most elaborately complex drama in television history or simply a whole bunch of metaphysical hooey.
Let's check in with The Alienist, posting his theories on an AICN talkback:
"If we find out, somewhere that the "Cerberus" system was NOT the Smoke Monster..or somehow Dharma had made a deal with the Smoke Monster and that's what the Blast Door spoke of as Cerberus I will believe the Man in Black was there all along. If not....The Man in Black or the Man in Black as the Smoke Monster was a recent development. Though I do remember Clare's dream, her nightmare, where Locke's two sides were represented by his eyes being covered by a white and a black Backgammon piece. Which one could argue presages The Man In Black's using of Locke's Body."
Chip: "Okay, wait. Is this show about Johnny Cash? Because I thought it was just a desert island fantasy series for sexually frustrated pseudo-intellectuals?"
