A Fall of Woodcocks

Citibank is worth, in toto, about as much as the wardrobe of 1970's clothing I have stored in the back of my closet.

Many professional football players are religiously insane.

If you suspect that you are having too good a day and your faith in fellow mankind is suspiciously upbeat, read the comments section of the Arizona Republic opinion page. It'll bring you right down.

I used to have a bumper sticker that read "cancer cures smoking." Somebody stole it. I guess they liked it.

If you have a dog that likes to chase its own tail, that dog is a capitalist.

Perhaps you drink too much coffee. Think it over while you're having another cup.

A long time ago when I was a nursing assistant in a small intensive care unit I was helping one of the nurses do something with a patient. The nurse (his name was Ed) explained to me that Dopamine is dose-dependent and the conversation took several other turns as we worked with the ventilated patient. "The patient always dies," he told me, but I already knew that.

The national debt of the United States is no longer "astronomically high." There are not enough stars in our galaxy for that to be so.

Arizona ranks 49th out of the 50 states in education spending per student. If Russell Pearce has his way, we will soon be rated 51st. Or even 52nd. He feels that strongly about the issue.

When the accumulated recidivism of N.TX. gets to me, I remember that they came here because they couldn't make it on the east coast, according to Michener. Those who couldn't make it here moved on to CA. Going back east, someday.

Our shiny new President's inaugural speech today should brighten moods a bit. He can't singlehandedly banish troglodytes, but enough of us spoke up enough to keep them from getting their way. Now we have an apparently brilliant, well-spoken visionary person again at the helm.

It's a marvel to see it.
