P.S. - Dave - thanks for the new vocabulary word, cathectic (and the back-formation verb you used, cathect.) Where do you *find* these words!?

I was talking to my sister and she was telling me how she felt about the election and this word went by: de-cathect.  I said, huh?  What did you say?  Did you say de-cathartic? 

No, she says, de-cathetic.  And like you, I had never heard of this word and she spells it out for me and I write it down and say I'm going to stick that in the blog when I have a chance. 

The Nero Wolfe books have a grand old time with Wolfe's massive vocabulary.  There's always a scene where the great detective uses an obscure word that befuddles his long suffering assistant, driving Archie to a dictionary.

Nosferatu Waiting for #6 Train

I think this is one of my favorite color subway shots so far.  Quite easy to color correct the lighting with the RAW controls. Oh, and my whole rant about losing the election and de-cathecting was just lost as I screwed up something while posting this picture.  I guess the only thing that matters is that I did throw out my t.v. set this morning.
