Who authored the "anaysis" haiku?
I really like that one a lot, and am curious.

As you can no doubt see, PJ solved my mailbox problem... I'm indebted to you PJ,
use the opportunity and demand something from me (Demand sessions! I need to
do sessions. ;) )

As PJ said, it was me.
Little Long-Skirted Rachel - Coming Soon to a Synagogue Near You!
. o O (It's getting late _again_.)
But seriously : thanks a *lot*! I never imagined this to happen; for a
haiku of mine to make it to the top ten (heck, English is a foreign language to
me!) and to receive extra praise after that.
This made me feel really good. You know, I just bought a Babylon 5 novel, the
second in the Psi Corps trilogy. I would've bought the
first one, but the store had only this, so it looks like I'll have to order. I
read into it a bit just some time ago, and there's the Psi Corps Pledge or
something like that; it has a line which goes "The Corps teaches, guides and
provides." And that made me _angry_, for some odd reason. Like heck, where _is_
that Corps which teaches and guides and so on?! I don't have anybody to talk to
about psi! I threw the book back into the sack, and immediately felt a sense of
shame. Come on, Rachel, that's not true! You've gotten a whole e-mail box from
PJ, and there are all those nice people... and you dare feel yourself alone?
(LOL - I really felt that way) I decisively logged back on (I was about to call
the day quits) and got _this_ mail. Into _this_ inbox. You folks have made my
day, seriously. Thank you's to all. Imagine a clumsy young girl hugging you :)
And Viv, thanks for the kind advice on e-mail providers, too!
Yes, and Liz, I haven't forgotten about my promise on Stargate to summarise that
Greg Egan book (and my ideas on the topic, too). I'll do it in the winter break.
I might also read and comment on this Psi Corps book, why not? I wonder how
realistic it'll be. It's already gained a plus in my eyes: in the B5 world, it
is said that a telepath needs like of sight to do his or her thing. But in this
particular novel they say somewhere that it's likely a simple psychological
limitation, not having to do with the physical world. (I opened the book at this
passage at first. Fun!) Which is a lot closer to what we experience, I guess.
Rocheleh (Which is Askenazic Jewish for a small Rachel - like you'd call a
Deborah Debbie in English. I don't know the exact term for this. Is a moniker
something like this, or is that more like nicknames?)
