water cannons


Not that we believe violence is the answer. We just happen to remember growing up in a bankrupt NYC in the 70's when we never believed for a minute that social security would actually be around for us by the time we retired, from what we saw "grown-ups" doing. Oscarina speaks from that point of view. And while she doesn't approve of riots, she's not exactly surprised by them.

UPDATE: also appearing at the Huffington Post, here.

storytime

This is a reaction to the articles that have been making their rounds this week about storytelling and Obama. (If you haven't read them: This, this, and this and this. There's more, too. But what's happening while we're reading them all?)

UPDATE: this cartoon also appears at the Huffington Post, here.

lunch

This is a cartoon that illustrates the premise whereby one mustn't hate fat cat Republicans or Tea Partiers just because they're rich and/or innately callous and selfish.

Yes, I know, we're early for the usual Monday post! But the Huffpo decided to publish it early, so I had to go with it and publish it here, too. By the way, although he's never been mentioned by name here, I call this guy the "Rich Bastard."

mark twain (not)

I was relieved to learn that this quote, "Sing like there's no one listening, etc." is NOT Mark Twain, though it's often attributed to him. I think if Mark Twain were to say anything like it, he'd more likely have said it in the past tense, rather than in the imperative. As for myself, I'd prefer it if you sang like I was listening.
