Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts. Develop the mind of equilibrium. You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride. — Sutta Nipata

Asshole: Sarah Palin wannabe Lisa Murkowski.

Again, it wasn’t just BP and Big Oil who failed with Deepwater Horizon. The Cheney/Rove/Bush administration failed us as well (as a matter of deliberate policy, of course).

Assholes: The producers of “The Hurt Locker”. Sir Mick, on the other hand, is a little more sensible.
