What germs, what jostling mobs there were in me."

Piffka, old Rummy is a truly scary person; but then, people without any conscience should be considered dangerous.

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

...and speaking of scoundrels:

"This hyper-patriotic scoundrel...turned out to be avaricious, deceptive and as eager to sell himself as a male escort."

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

Hi Olga! Hope your Christmas was full of simple pleasures.

"We deposed the secular socialist Saddam, whom bin Laden has long despised, ignited Sunni and Shiite fundamentalist fervor in Iraq, and have now provoked a 'defensive' jihad that has galvanized jihad-minded Muslims around the world. It's hard to imagine a set of policies better designed to sabotage the war on terrorism."

Peter Bergen, Mother Jones, July 2004

He's absolutely right, you know!


We won't talk of Christmas, Piffka! I'm very, very pleased it's passed!

All the best to you & yours for 2006, Piffka. Very Happy

And may 2006 be a much more serene & dignified sort of year than 2005, for all life forms on planet earth! That wouldn't take much, hey? Very Happy
