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

So tired. Today is the last day of the race week - 10 hours or one-thousand miles, whichever comes first. We've never done the whole ten hours. I am officially done registering people at ten this morning - I'll spend the rest of the day doing what I haven't been able to do all week...actually watching some racing! That or napping. It's a toss-up.

Go here for info on the race. If you happen to watch and see the people in white on the corners and responding to incidents, or the folks driving the wreckers and rollbacks...they're the folks I have been registering all week, making coffee for, bringing ice and water to, and chilling beer for. I know every one of them.

Or, if you don't much care about cars going 200+ miles per hour, go here. It's not race related, and you'll laugh.

Thanks for the laugh...do not wear your legs out going 200 miles an hour for ten hours. That wouldn't be good...;-)
