Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

The ship was a derelict, anchored off of...erm...St. Maartens, I think...or maybe St. Thomas...I can't recall precisely - it was in '06, which may as well have been twenty years ago in Mom Years.

You have my sympathy, Chris - while I love snow and Winter in general, I do not love them in the city.
