What's on the nightstand

"The Restaurant at the End of the Universe"
by Douglas Adams

As this seemingly endless presidential campaign enters its final few weeks, here are some of my random thoughts:

- When did it stop being governmental pressure on banks to avoid "red-lining" and encourage over-extension and start being "predatory" lending practices?

- Stop talking to me about "reaching across the aisle" and "non-partisanship" garbage, John. Someone has already reached across the aisle and picked our pockets to the tune of $700 billion, including nonsense about excise tax relief for toy arrow-makers in Oregon. Porkity-pork-pork.

- If someone campaigns on the premise that he will rob Peter to pay Paul, he'll always get Paul's vote.

- Atlas Shrugged

But aside from that - the Phillies beat the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS. The Angels are out, so I need not worry about torn allegiances. The 49ers are supposed to play a football team from Philadelphia on Sunday - I hope one shows up. Gary is on call most of the weekend so I can do errands and get my drivers license picture taken.


Quote du jour:

"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil."

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982) US author
Atlas Shrugged, 1957
