Oh No, No H2o!

Just noticed that the water pressure here in Prince William County is suddenly way down–which means my neighborhood is affected by the Fairfax Count Water Authority problem. “Water, water, everywhere nor any drop to drink,” went through my head (a line I first heard in an Iron Maiden song, and only later in a Coleridge poem). At least we still have power. Next came a threatening note from NR world headquarters in NYC: “Tell the people to subscribe to NR Digital, or we’ll cut off your water!” “Too late!” I said. Their reply: “Bush doctrine! Preemptive strike!” So please, sign up now: here, here, or here.
