There are days for sunny morning walks in the garden, where dew-bejeweled roses release their fragrance on the light breeze.
These are not those days. These are days of harsh realities demanding sharp answers. This is now … time for thorns.
I watched “Forbes on FOX” this morning while I was wrapping presents, and heard two gems.
Elizabeth McDonald of FOX Business News on Hollywood refusing to sign George Clooney’s letter: “They make a weather vane look like the Rock of Gibraltar.”
David Asman: “It’s hard to stick a backbone in a snail.”
National Review’s Rich Lowry has penned (all right, printed!) a currently appropriate version of the song.

How you view Jane Gordon’s list may depend upon your mood of the moment as well as your political views, but I found it amusing, despite the fact that I can accomplish most of the things myself, and the remainder are irrelevant to me. For example, I never wanted a man, especially a husband (yes, I’ve been married), to tell me I look great in an outfit when I actually look like a stuffed sausage or something else equally unattractive. I am told I have a higher tolerance for truth than most women do in such matters, so perhaps I’m not the best judge.
Maybe a million mummies buried over 300 acres…that is a lot of dead people. Only 1,700 bodies have been found thus far, buried in shafts cut into the limestone rock that are at times up to 75 feet deep, but archaeologists believe there may be many thousands more. The burials date back some 1,500 years, to the time Egypt was controlled by the Roman and Byzantine Empire.
They appear to be ordinary people rather than important people with high status, but who were they? Where did they come from? Why do they seem to be grouped by hair color? Are the clusters of bodies family groups? Why do most of those found appear to have healthy teeth, when most ancient Egyptians had terrible dentition due to the amount of grit contained in the grain they consumed?
The site was originally discovered 30 years ago, but has largely remained closely held until now. What a wonderful set of puzzles we have to look forward to being sdolved.
I don’t know that I’d call runaway or out-of-control drones poetic, but they certainly are interesting.
