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

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

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

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"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

Clouds on the Lake

Clouds reflect in the water
Smooth, smooth surface
A mirror
Showing the sky where to blush
Where to dab
With powder-puff clouds

Clouds

Clouds on the lake

Clouds in the lake

My mind wanders,
sees strange birds swimming
in the blue
lake
sky
sky-lake

I wonder if the fish ever look upward
and find themselves confused
wondering why they can't swim
in the lake above them

Everything scatters
shattered
when the alligator
answers
philosophical questions
with his prosaic teeth.
