The past is never dead. It's not even past.
 William Faulkner

As the world swirls around me, the words of William Faulkner come to mind.  They are very true yet so few people seem to realise it.   Here in my native South I hear conversations going on around me that could have happened 150 years ago.  Interesting times and getting more interesting by the moment.

The Sky Did Not Fall

I've been news-fasting for the last few days.  The annoying hum and din of the talking heads was beginning to irritate in the extreme.  A sidebar, but, why are do all the women on Fox News dress like hookers?  And could they possibly get their war paint any more garish? 

I see the Sky has not fallen.   I assume the Republicans caved again, as they always do. Does modern medicine perform testicle transplants?  If so the Republican National Committee should investigate as they sorely need some masculinity. Be rough finding donors true, but if enough money changed paws I expect you might find some wino that would sell you one of his.

In the South the Republicans are known as the Stupid Party and the Democrats are known as the Evil Party.  Or to paraphrase Huey P Long....  one wants to eat you from the top down and the other from the bottom up.

Think I'll wear a polo shirt to mass this morn. I feel casual.
