Political quotes of the week

On Inauguration Day, Barack Obama is going to be riding in a brand new presidential limousine made by General Motors. Because, folks, nothing says "hope for the future" like General Motors.
-Conan O'Brien

Congress says this week they are looking into this Bernard Madoff scandal. So The guy that made $50 billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $750 billion disappear.
-Jay Leno

Quotes of the day

Defeat doesn't finish a man- quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Finishing second in the Olympics gets you silver. Finishing second in politics gets you oblivion.

I don't think that a leader can control to any great extent his destiny. Very seldom can he step in and change the situation if the forces of history are running in another direction.

I reject the cynical view that politics is inevitably, or even usually, a dirty business.

I would have made a good Pope.

I'd like to see people, instead of spending so much time on the ethical problem, get after the problems that really affect the people of this country.

Once you get into this great stream of history, you can't get out.

Politics is like the stock market: it's a bad business for people who can't afford to lose.

Politics would be a helluva good business if it weren't for the goddamned people.

Solutions are not the answer.

Sometimes at the end of the day when I'm smiling and shaking hands, I want to kick them.

The jawbone of an ass is just as dangerous a weapon today as in Samson's time.

The trouble with most conservatives is that those who have brains lack guts and those who have guts lack brains.

Voters quickly forget what a man says.

When the President does it, that means it is not illegal.

You must not give power to a man unless, above everything else, he has character. Character is the most important qualification the President of the United States can have.

Always remember that others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.

-Richard M. Nixon (January 9, 1913 - April 22, 1994)

In our last episode I announced my impending marriage, which occurred without incident. Since then, I've done a number of things I'd never done before: use an AARP discount to pay for the hotel room for the wedding night; give my charming bride a ride from our room through the lobby on a luggage cart; and stroll down the Presidential inauguration route on Pennsylvania Avenue in DC.

My home PC apparently suffered some type of catastrophic failure with which I'll have to deal when I return. When I rebooted it after backing it up on New Year's Day, it couldn't locate my profile and warned me that I had lost my identity, a rather droll comment for it to make on my wedding day.

On the plus side, its brain dead status means I can't check my email, update the web sites I maintain, or engage in any non-honeymoon related activities. Which, when you think about it, isn't all that bad.

It'll be good to return home, pick up the pups from the kennel, and take up permanent residence with a Mrs. Barkes who is actually speaking to me.

Talk with yinz all later...

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