A Nation Turns Its Lonely Eyes

New Hampsha


(CBS News Graphic, January 9, 2011)
Sitting on a sofa on a [Tuesday] afternoon,
Going to the candidates' debate;
Laugh about it, shout about it,
When you've got to choose
Every way you look at it, you lose
"Mrs. Robinson"
Simon and Garfunkle (1968)

  1. Recently the Turner Classic Movies channel showed Frank Capra's movie State of the Union, a generation earlier than the Mrs. Robinson song - Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, the young Angela Lansbury - well worth watching

  2. Yes; the pre-Manchurian Candidate Angela was Teh Hot.

Please feel free to thrill all humankind with the brilliance and importance of You. And forgo all civility (especially the passive-aggressive sort, aggression masquerading as mildness) . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

But, consider: Dogs have short attention spans, don't tolerate bullies, and we're notoriously thin-skinned -- so make sense, be brief, and play nice, or I'll bite you and pee on your leg. Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark.
