All, however, offer unacceptable terms. I don't like the editorial policies. Also Writer's Market warns that with co-publication the publisher will make their required profit on the sale of 1000 volumes and have little incentive to promote after that point, and usually will not. Finally decide to self publish. This means I will make no money for all the years of work. The lack of financial reward for my work, and for investing in real estate in Northern New England before the Depression is beginning to get a bit tiresome. [The ruined economy I left behind becomes a Nine Year Deflatinary Depression 1989-1998]. Visit Dr. Gabler.

Dec 16 Cologne this season is Iron. Call Ed for last time.

Dec 18 At this point I have learned that California will pay for my operation, because I can't. I can reconcile taking assistance only because Socialism has stolen from me all my life to sustain unworthy people. If they hadn't, I would now be at very least $210,000 richer and would have the money I need to pay the medical myself. Federal government tells me they will not pay a penny to save somebody's eyesight, but will gladly support the person forever once he has gone blind. "Internationalist lending requires natinal spending." Visit Dell He is helpful about my medical predicament, but utilizes this opportunity to reintroduce the subject of religion. In talking about virtual reality machines, he suddenly asks "Roy, do you think the Evil One will use them against Man?" His tone is very hateful, bigoted, and condescending. I now realize that redneck elements, present company excepted, try to draw Freethinking individuals out on the subject of religion for purely malicious reasons. We sit outside. He escalates his lunacy, suggesting that "Faith in God" should manifest itself as non-resistance to government tyranny. I make the mistake of observing that, from a cultural standpoint, there is no integrity for a person of European ancestry in "kissing up to Eastern personifications of diety". Only later do I realize that he probably considers that preferring my own cultural heritage is itself bigotry and that I am against him for not being a carbon copy of him. Visit Wildwood Park. Feel sad knowing that Ed will be gone soon.

Dec 19 Colfax PO, Reno PO, Steamboat PO, Silver Legacy astounds me. At Downtown PO get Box 40608. Leave at 3:30 PM. Heading through the Sierra, I think that Ed must have just gone through Transition because it appears that his spirit passes in front of my car. I note the time as 4:10 PM PST. Stop at Walker's.

Mar 7 Write small essay "Facing the Problems for Liberty in the USA". This is the first non-libertarian thing I have written, but I have come to believe that the only way there can ever be a Libertarian society in the USA is by exiling all identifiable groups who exhibit ongoing antagonism to Libertarian principles. The things advocated are directed also at rectifying mistakes made earlier in our history.

Mar 10 Figure vitamins.

Mar 12 Visit dump. 2 PM Visit Dr. Chang who is late. Nurse tells me tat he is doing a hepatoscopy at the hospital. Beautiful blonde at chicken counter in Raley's asks me "Do you see any particular pair of thighs that you find desirable, Sir?" I beam with delight. The dames still like me even with my current Cushing facial edema. Nurse Peggy last year said "Don't worry. It looks OK - like Kennedy". True, but it never occurred to me.

Apr 4 Eve. Finish reading Unholy Alliance. Well-researched and written. Immature, hysterical, and very anti-Nordic, however. Insulting to people of Pagan religion in general, especially Wicca, Celtic, and Asatru. Reasoning doesn't seem to take into account that not all Nordic people practicing their true heritage are Nazis. Most are not.
