"I loved Molly with a love rare and true. I had the chance to spend part of an evening in her company, drinking and eating raw oysters at a bar in Nawlins in the mid-80s, in company with a bunch of other writers and grad students...She was witty, razor-smart, and drank like a sailor..." ~ Woody NinetyNiner Konopak

Clocks are just handy ways to keep track of the countdown.
(Props to Harlan Ellison, a creep but a good writer.)
