Re: Reagan's Bind
Stan Taylor e-mails the lyrics of the Austin Lounge Lizards' song "The Ballad of Ronald Reagan," which includes the following verse:
He's our gun-running president
He's slippery as a squid
He's stupid if he didn't know,
Dishonest if he did
Yep, that's Reagan's Bind. If there was a third option, nobody's figured out yet what it was.

Today's pixels. Eric Umansky has a blog. How long has this been going on?

Here's an article on Wilmington, Del.'s, "Bethel Villa Apartments." I point this out only to mention that this name is redundant in three languages.
"I wish i could do more, and I wish I thought my actions had a larger effect than they likely do, but the smallness of the effect is not a reason not to do it."
Carla wrote that in comments recently and I thought it was too cool not to repeat it. I feel like that all the time.

So I'm walking back from State Street just now and there's a van for D.J.'s Chim Chimney Sweeps parked at the light. I blow the driver a kiss, 'cause that's lucky too, and he gives me a dirty look. And it wasn't a "yeah, yeah, we get that all the time" dirty look.
I just think that if you're going to work for a company called "Chim Chimney Sweeps" then you oughta know the song.
