"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

So Modern, This Bright Morning America

Just overheard at a Hannaford's, 7:05 AM, whilst shopping for cheap coffee and tonight's dinner:

Fat Old Man, with a Navy Cap: "...Ayotte. She still knows how to handle the niggers."

Skinny Old Man, bald, no hat: [chuckles] Sure does.

I assume this refers to Ayotte's successful capital murder prosecution of Michael Addison (a black man) for the murder of Officer Michael Briggs (not a black man). If not, it's even more awesome for its embodiment of The Compleat Suck™.
