Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

Even if Woundwort thinks otherwise, I am moved by this display of family togetherness. Many of my readers probably have teenage children, and most of those kids, being teens, presumably dedicate many of their spare hours to various forms of illegal, embarassing, and stupid activities. But how many of those teens trust their parents enough to involve them in their illegal acts? This is clearly an unusually close-knit family.
I know I'll always treasure my memories of those summer evenings as a kid when I accompanied my father to go out to the game, cheer for the home team, drink a few beers, eat hot dogs, drink some more beer, take off our shirts, grab a concealed weapon, and jump the first base coach. Ah, the joys of simpler times.
