that glazed look

Yesterday I spent most of the day standing on my rubber mat glazing, glazing, glazing pottery.  I listened to War of the Worlds (the 1938 Orson Wells radio drama that caused mass hysteria).  Did you know that a decade after the first mishap an Ecuadorian radio announcer reworked the story and aired it in Quito Ecuador, where it again incited a public panic.  The militia was called out to defend against the supposed aliens, six citizens were killed, and the radio station responsible for the broadcast was burned to the ground.
