Wait, weren't they going to drain the swamp? Very disappointed, I thought better of Rep. Gingrich ... surely he knows the history of false accusations and character assassination that the 1950's House Unamerican Activities Committee gave this Nation.

"I want to volunteer because I think Appalachian Trail history is very great," said [Mr.] Yamada in halting English, "I want to make AT history."

Yeah, another white blaze addict. It's an epidemic.

Exactly so. Only two quibbles: one, the NRA must buy into the training and certification role, because the majority of the USA's firearms owners do recognize it as their defender in the political arena -- and two, the insurance industry must be engaged to provide compensation for victims of gun violence.

Funny and true in the UK, also true in the USA (edited to three years v. three months and including the Washington Nationals). The elections of this century have all been watershed decisions about our Nation's values and vision of the future, and about the effectiveness of representative democracy.

Up this year: choosing between an imperial and demagogic Presidency with a vision of sweeping away our troubles -- baby, bathwater, and all -- or a detail- focused manager aiming for another try at repairing and improving the existing bureaucracy.

By my count, We the People are batting (being generous here) slightly below 500 so far. Still, there's always Hope. Please register, talk your acquaintances into registering, and vote.

Give gifts of experiences, not things. Things are a bundle of decay, experiences shining memories.
