Those of you who read this space regularly you will recall a discussion of
cheesecake, loneliness, and the internet from earlier this month. The premise went like this: the internet is lonely. Does anybody out there really connect? (Note: I know the answer is yes, but I was exaggerating for effect.) To show that people really can connect with one another, send me a postcard and I’ll send you a free cheesecake. As of this writing, the cake is still unclaimed. Now how’s that for irony, eh?
Actually, as a result of reading that piece, one loyal Star Chamber reader was inspired to order flowers for his wife. Now if that’s not reaching out and touching, I don’t know what is.
By the way, it’s not too late to get yourself a free cheesecake.
Another part of the Star Chamber community has been active. We are delighted to report that as a result of our listing his artwork on this site, West Coast artist John Lynch has sold two of the original paintings first displayed on this site in September.
In an effort to provide more information about the Star Chamber site and its cast of characters, we have assembled a short but we hope useful list of Rarely-Asked-Questions.
