Raving Out of My Mind for 29 June 2009

“I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They’ve experienced pain and bought jewelry.” — Rita Rudner

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. — Alfred Lord Tennyson

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” — Confucius

“I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That’s my idea of a perfect day.” — Anonymous

Look here: Hysterical headline over story that… doesn’t support the head and in fact is contra to the head. Another example of Big Journalism’s effort to make itself inessential, irrelevant. If they’re successful, they clearly won’t be missed when they go the way of the Pony Express…..

Gee, have I made it clear yet that I don’t think Sanford is history yet? The right apology, abject enough, will win the wingnuts right back. Meanwhile, when his wife stated essentially that she cared not at all that he had been missing for a couple of days without a word, why didn’t that set off any bells for the fifth estate — or is me, only I find it bizarre, abnormal.

And health reform? I’m certain it’s not going to happen, and here’s why.

What will they think of next (or: What has the RIAA wrought?)? Automated extortionate abuse of the legal system.

They’re back: Military coups (ousters of elected governments) in Latin America. Another success for the Raygunites and their followers: Their gratuitous spread of democracy clearly has taken deep root.

This is kind of sad (not that it directly affects me).

Concerned? Worried??
