At last! We have an Economic Recovery Advisory Board, or ERAB (that's BARE back)!

Odd to think that no one had ever proposed this solution before. It's so much cheaper and more humane than starting a world war, and not nearly as effective.

Well, Baracko is wasting no time, says The Nyok Times. He's cooking up a spending plan, a tax-cut plan, a two-year economic stimulus package guaranteed to create 2.5 million jobs, and a fœces-load of other remedies to bring swift recovery.

To save us all breath and ink, the shorthand for this panacea will be The National Recovery Act of 1933.

The Independent reports, "Hillary Clinton is being talked about as the next US Secretary of State . . . even as the incoming Democratic administration fills up with throwbacks from her eight years with Bill in the White House."

Yep, folks, it's business-as-usual, and more of the same, old same-old, down in the brand-new D.C. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose!

Which is French for "The electorate has been hornswoggled again."

I ran across this site—quite by accident—and was profoundly shocked by its content. I hope and pray that responsible parents everywhere will install the appropriate filters to prevent their impressionable children from seeing this sort of disgusting material. (I refer, of course, to the grammar and spelling, much of which is absolutely appalling.)

Kids Still Say the Darnedest Things

On Friday, I was tooling along I-95 with my oldest (and youngest) child, when the subject of rock-and/or-roll music came up. I wondered aloud, "Hmmm—and/or? What do you suppose and divided by or is?" As so often happens when I try to be witty, my effort was met with awkward silence. Being used to that by now, I simply went about thinking of a new topic of conversation. I was still thinking, when she ventured, in the hesitant tone of one groping for the light, ". . . 'and' or'ths?"

I almost drove us into a guardrail.

All A-Twitter

Just signed up for twitter. We'll see.

Marking Time

Well, that was a hiatus!

If anyone knows anything about the election results and can fill me in, I'd be much obliged. So far, I've heard absolutely nowt, and I'm becoming a mite curious. Not morbidly so, since it doesn't matter a hoot to me who wins; sort of like it don't matter a hoot to ol' George whether white folk gwine to have a Depression. As a taxpayer, I'm screwed, whoever wins.
