A while ago I sent my seven readers to the website of my diabolically talented brother-in-law. So now some updates: He has a new painting, for which I bear some indirect responsibility, and he has organized a new show in Santa Cruz; it's all about Law and Order and its many sub-shows. Dana and I contributed something flippant then were stunned to find how seriously and brilliantly the other participants actually engaged the topic of the show. Please be sure the read the coloring book, created by none other than ... my brother-in-law.

This just in: Elliott is almost certainly right-handed. We've gleaned this from his habit, in moments of extended tactile stimulation, of balling up his left hand and sticking it in the air while his right hand tenderly strokes, waves, flaps, points, touches, whatever. He also rolls to his right side during this. The stuffed animals suspended from his Arch of Stimulation have been migrating to the right side, where they can be battered instead of ignored. I must admit I've felt like it's almost unjust, as if I should be balancing him out. But what do I want to do, make him into a switch hitter? Let him list to starboard all he wants.
