Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance................

Whatever you do to the least of these: "That's the promise of America, the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation, the fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper." ---Barack Obama, who's half-brother George lives in a hut in Kenya on $1 per month
Congress is back. If, upon reading those words, your hand shoots reflexively to your wallet or purse to make sure it's still there, then you know what comes next: A Gang of 16 in the Senate is pushing an energy bill that would spend billions of dollars, raise taxes, and do nothing to lower the price of gasoline

The most wonderful thing about losing my memory is that now I will always be able to discover new places, meet new people and make new friends.

Particular Paulines Pernicious puns........................
When gambling became legal our the city, everyone agreed that the city was now a bettor place.
If you shoot a monk, does the bullet go from the "firing pin into the friar
Our Catholic church has plans to bring their parishioners to services by bus. They plan to call it mass transit.
And a word about modernization.........
    In the early 20th Century, Thomas Edison was spreading the word about electricity.
    Once, while vacationing out West, he stopped at the Sioux reservation. Edison was shocked to learn that there was no indoor plumbing, and that he would have to use an outhouse.
    In fact, he was told, the Sioux had to use the outhouse regardless of the weather.
    To help the Sioux, Edison installed lights in the outhouse.    
    With this kind act, he became the first person to wire a head for a reservation!
What's a Metaphor.........................
They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that resembled Nancy Kerrigan's teeth.

He fell for her like his heart was a mob informant, and she was the East River.  
Even in his last years, Granddad had a mind like a steel trap, only one that had been left out so long, it had rusted shut.  
Well, that's it from your embedded reporter here in the outskirts of Absurdistan.  I want to assure you that there's nothing in the world I wouldn't do for Governor O'Malley.   There's nothing he wouldn't do for me. That's the way it is - we go through life doing nothing for each other except he keeps raising my taxes!

But, on the other hand..............
Enjoy the little things, for one day, you may look back and realize they were the big things.
