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

Sad commentary: "Quietly, as the United States presidential election and its aftermath have dominated the news, America's three broadcast network news divisions have stopped sending full-time correspondents to Iraq." --The New York Times
The deficit doctors have their scalpels out all right, but they're not poised over the budget. That's as fat as ever and getting fatter. What they're ready to operate on is your wallet.......
And the stupid party (Republicans) did nothing to stem Socialism, again.

Marvelous Mary's Meticulous Murmurings.................

Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.

Duct  tape is like 'The Force'. It has a light side and a  dark side, and it holds the universe  together. 

Gravity is a myth; Earth sucks.

I'm not a complete idiot -- Some parts are just missing.

Particular Paul's Perilous Puns...........
A day without wordplay is a day without punshine
It's hard to believe that Lucy and I are actually getting married, considering the fact that her multi-millionaire father owns the local NFL franchise, and I'm just a lowly, underpaid member of the grounds  crew, relegated to painting the team logo on the field, which is actually a fairly difficult job, what with all the little flairs, curlicues and swooshes I have to deal with, not to mention the texture of the turf itself, relative humidity and all the foot traffic that it gets. But I dye grass.

How can I miss you if you won't go away?
Sorry if I looked interested. I'm not.
I am out of estrogen, and I have a gun.

That's it for this week from your "Community Organizer" located strategically away from Absurdia, the principle city of The People's Democratic Republic of Absurdistan where the Governor continues to lay off people and buy trees..............

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