Ah, thank you, Jillian. I had a feeling as I typed that that it wasn't Oscar—hence the qualifier.

Should I take my Daily Linz before or after my daily Metamucil?

You're only as old as the woman you feel :-) Consequently, I remember being 23 and, for six months, feeling a wonderful 42. Then, when I was 31, feeling a spirited 18 for a few weeks ;-} Oh, the joys of the generation gap!

Daily Linz is your daily Metamucil, you fool!

I'm forwarding this to my proctologist!

Linz writes: 

Youth, said Oscar Wilde, is wasted on the young. ...  Still, ... don’t write the elderly off. (In the contemporary gay world, that’s anyone over twenty-one.) Flip musings above notwithstanding, the geriatric have much to proffer from which youth can profit, even if they’re not top of any nubile list for bedroom delights. ... Chris Sciabarra began his groundbreaking Trilogy at the dialectically correct age of sixty-six and completed it at ninety-nine.


I'm glad Linz mentions Wilde in this context; now people know my secret.  These, ahem, youthful looks are covering up the "Dr. Diabolical Dialectical" essence.  (As for "bedroom delights":  I still do everything in threes...)

What a charming article, Linz. I wish you all the success in the world with this new project.
... fifty-three years have already elapsed. How can this be, when I’m just getting started? 
Yeah. I know the feeling...

btw - As Solo's oldest member, I'm actually a year and a half younger than you.

Linz, if you are having trouble with your "delivery mechanism" you might want to see an urologist.

I'm looking forward to a daily dose of Linz.

Oooh...daily impromptus by Linz. Nice!

Don't fret the equipment malfunctions. You have to go on thinking you still have what you used to- consider the alternative.

I got reminded of it once again last month- standing on a stage playing my guts out, looking down at my right knee, which had developed an Elvis-like shake, without being told to do so. All the blasting it had taken over the years had come to get it. Fuck it, so now I do an Elvis thing. I can use it as some pathetic sympathy ploy...

I thank those who have expressed concern about my delivery mechanism. Let me reassure you. The key word was "falter," not "fail." Things can take a little longer, that's all. And there's something to be said for that.

This is Linz at his sparkling best! Thanks for brightening up my day, and I'm delighted that this column is going to be a regular event.

This is Linz at his geriatric worst.  This is not passion, this is incontinence. Linz you know I am kidding, SOLO just took an incredible step for the better and I can't wait to see the results.  We already have Tibor as a constant, and now you.  Thank you Linz, SOLO is now the paradigm of  'total height' and I've never been more excited to log on first thing in the mornings.

Solo'ists having 'duties'?  Interesting idea, an Objectivist having a duty...

Of course we have duties here, as in life. You're talking about unchosen duty, and there's a big difference.

Linz... I called the "Incontinence Hotline" and they put me on hold.
