I missed this Obituary somehow…

July 24, 2007

Likely unknown to all of us, William Boyle died in May 2000 at the age of 88. “Who was he?” you ask. Don’t bother to check your American history book because Mr. Boyle’s name will not be mentioned. Yet he came up with an idea that changed the financial landscape not only of the United States but of the developed world as well: the Credit Card.

Born in 1911, Mr. Boyle struggled, as so many did, during the Depression selling hair tonic and other items door-to-door. After serving in World War II, he went to work for Franklin National Bank in New York. In 1951, he developed the Franklin Charge Card. The credit card was born! By the next year, 750 local merchants and 28,000 customers had been signed up. And, as good ideas normally do, the concept of the credit card spread quickly and the rest is history. (1)

*Copasetic, also spelled copacetic or copesetic, means very satisfactory or acceptable. It is an unusual English language word in that it is one of the few words of seemingly unknown origin that is not considered slang in contemporary usage. It is used almost exclusively in North America, and is said to have been first widely publicized in communications between the astronauts and Mission Control of the Apollo Program in the 1960s.

The Big Red Chinese Dragon

July 11, 2007

i had a dream with a big red chinese dragon who was racing with me in the middle of a strong river. I remember laugher, and carelessness.
I cant remember everĀ  having been visited by a dragon inĀ  any dream before.

I’ve just eaten the last strawberry in existence,
it was small and round just completing the change
from white promise to a more pointed satisfaction.

Looking on were two darling individuals,
an old woman who as I removed the the fruit from
vine began to pantomime experiences of her past

The other youger boy fell into this spell and their
attention mutually fell ill together, partnering
ignorance and regret as if the same Doppler effect.

I found the prize in avoiding their heredity,
a simple act of jealousy against the
pathos’ temperate rising.
