Happy Birthday, Marguerite Ann Johnson...
... aka Maya Angelou:
Because of our routines we often forget that life is an ongoing adventure.
Courage is the most important of all virtues, because without it we can't practice any other virtue with consistency.

But seriously, how about that John McCain?
David Letterman says John McCain looks like:
...a guy whose head you can barely see over the steering wheel
...the guy who thinks the nurses are stealing his stuff. 'Dad, why would they take your socks? It doesn't make sense.'"
...the kind of guy who brags that his new denture adhesive allows him to eat corn on the cob
...a guy who parked his RV overnight at Wal-Mart
...a guy at a restaurant that says I'm leaving ten percent, that's good enough
...the guy who goes to the curb for the paper and locks himself outside of the house
...the guy that walks up to the mound to settle down a young pitcher
...the guy who picks up his TV remote when the phone rings
...a guy who gets tickets for mowing under the influence
...a guy with a collection of movies he bought at the car wash
...a guy on the beach with a metal detector
...the guy who is still confused by the phone answering machine: 'Hello, is that - hello, is that you? Larry, Larry, hello?
...the guy who calls his grandson when he screws up the remote: 'Well, now all the shows are in Spanish. What am I going to do, hello?'"
...the guy at the movies whose wife has to repeat everything
...the guy who has to always be told something is on his chin
...a guy who still has a rotary phone
...a guy who's backed over his own mailbox
...a guy whose sweater is always mis-buttoned
...the guy who always tells you he's 72 years young
...the guy who's bragged that oatmeal has lowered his cholesterol
...the guy who should be co-hosting with Kelly Ripa
...the old guy at the barber shop?
...a Wal-Mart greeter
...the neighbor who says, 'Oh, that dead tree is on your property'
...always early for the early bird special
...the guy at the supermarket who is confused by the automatic doors
...the uncle who pretends to remove his thumb
...an old guy in a coffee shop who's still complaining about the designated hitter
...the guy who asks the driver if he's on the right bus
...the guy who's always saying, 'What was that? Nothing? That's what I thought.'"

The firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address is now something other than email@example.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used firstname.lastname@example.org as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that email@example.com was no longer firstname.lastname@example.org but rather email@example.com which is longer than firstname.lastname@example.org and more letters to type than email@example.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than firstname.lastname@example.org but actually just as functional as email@example.com? I sent e-mails from the firstname.lastname@example.org address to just about everybody I knew who had used email@example.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the firstname.lastname@example.org change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which email@example.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for firstname.lastname@example.org would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that email@example.com no longer is the firstname.lastname@example.org they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. email@example.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
