"...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 much wrong with this:

Why You're Not Married

I'd rather do two weeks of ignored laundry.* Yep, that's what I'm going to do instead of going after yet one more piece of AOLHuffington wankery.

* - My wife rocks. I was an asshole yesterday. We had the day alone, and I blew it. My cousin is in from Saudi Arabia, and our kids were sledding with hers. Instead of any other possible combination of emotional states, I woke up grumpy and ornery. After she put me in my place we played some video game boxing. She knocked my 'toon out five or six times in a row.

I'm doing laundry today.

Tracy McMillan's manifesto for men, to make them more compliant?

Huff Puff Blowyourhousedown Post!

Yeah, I'm still single because I don't think like Tracy wants me to think. I need to change. She doesn't. I do.

Wow, that article was a horror show. More disturbing still was the number of comments on how great an article it was.

Like I am taking marriage advice from someone who was married 3 times already by the age of 40...

It's was cruel of me to link to it.

The article becomes a lot more enjoyable if you consider it as something specifically directed towards Arianna.

Ha! That was funny.
