is not a [web site] to be tossed aside lightly, it should
be thrown aside with great force."
in Dorothy Parker's day, a web site was where a spider lay
in wait for lunch. Those web sites were not to be tossed aside
lightly-no-nor thrown aside with great force, neither, because
they'd only stick to your fingers and you'd have to go find
a napkin to wipe them off. Then you could toss or throw the
napkin aside as you saw fit, but in the trash can, please;
we won't have you littering.
course, Ms. Parker didn't actually suggest tossing web sites
about; she was discussing a novel. The unadulterated quote
worked fine for the print version of our magazine-go buy one
and fling it around all you want-but things change here in
cyberspace. Many of the contents of the online edition of
Moorpark Review, which you hold here in your hot little computer
monitor, are exclusive to this site. So read, browse, enjoy.
We hope these works will please you, thrill you, perhaps even
inspire you to contribute to next
year's edition (hint, hint). However, if they infuriate you,
and inspire you instead to throw your computer aside with
great force, don't come crying to us. We've gone out for pizza.
