From the Patriot Post:
“The more is given the less the people will work for themselves, and the less they work the more their poverty will increase.” –Russian writer Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoi (1828-1910)
Puff pieces: “First lady Michelle Obama returned to the White House last week after spending her summer vacation walking the fine fashion line between comfortably casual and utterly camera-ready. Her travel attire served as a wake-up call to all those American tourists who have blighted the national landscape with their ill-fitting shorts, sad-sack T-shirts and aggressively revealing tank tops: You can do better.” –The Washington Post’s Robin Givhan chastising the unwashed masses of America for not living up to the celebrity standards of the White House’s Socialist Bourgeoisie
In the unintentionally amusing category, there’s this story from the WaPo about Mexico worried about their part of the drug war becoming more difficult as California not only decriminalizes pot, but also says it’s an herb often necessary for treating sick people. Poor things predict an increase in violence. The violent ones don’t USE pot, y’see.
Today, like most Fridays, I’m kinda off – up too late on Thursday having a really good time with some really good people. And since Lovely Daughter and Handsome Son-in-law are going to the home opener of the Jaguars on Sunday, I volunteered to watch the Pixie that day. No rest for the wicked. Tomorrow I’ll be posting tributes to two men killed on September 11, 2001, as a participant in Project 2996.
It was my brother’s birthday before it was 9-11, though, so
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GLENN!!!
