Clint Eastwood
 is 76.

In honor of his birthday,
a three-part meditation
on quality:

Part I —

From The Quality of Diamond,
Log24 entries from Feb. 2004:

The Quality
with No Name

And what is good, Phaedrus,
and what is not good…
Need we ask anyone
to tell us these things?

— Epigraph to
Zen and the Art of
Motorcyle Maintenance

Part II —

From Log24 on
Dec. 7, 2003:

Eyes on the Prize

Dialogue from “Good Will Hunting” —

Will:   He used to just put a belt,
          a stick, and a wrench
          on the kitchen table
          and say, “Choose.”
Sean:  Gotta go with the belt, there.
Will:    I used to go with the wrench.

 Location, Location, Location

Part III —

From the website of
Noam D. Elkies,
Harvard mathematician:


Where the livin’ is sleazy:
Folk are humpin’
And the chillun is high.
Oh yo’ daddy’s rich,
‘Cos yo’ ma is good lookin’
So hush, ugly baby,
Or I’ll make you cry.

[“Parody by Noam D. Elkies;
not the original lyrics,
of course.”]
