Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

that is all.  

oh -- and may i add, i hope it stays that way. 

i had no idea it was so broken.  sheesh.  i had to hack to leave a comment myself.

my hack?  adding "?" at the end of the address of the post at which I desired to leave a comment.  So kind of you to ask.  Excellent idea:  I'll add it to the hacks page straightaway.  Thank you and --

Be seeing you.
