Shhhhh...Not now

I can't be bothered with posting today...I'm reading.

Just got my copy of Mark Twain's newest book...an autobiography.  Volume One.  Amazing so far.  I had no idea how much money he spent on that damned automatic type-setting invention.  And his reflections of London(of 125 years ago) are priceless.  Just started it and can't put it down...already a third of the way this huge volume of well over 700 pages.  

Don't miss it if you can.

If Twain and H.L. Mencken were alive today imagine what they would have to say about current events! Even that godless misanthrope Nietschze would have some interesting viewpoints.

Hairy - Or Ezra Pound, Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, Father Coughlin...
ah, I long for the days when a cigar was a cigar, and and anti-semite was regarded as someone with common sense!

Just a friendly reminder to watch your flouride intake. I saw a the Clark Pershing Bridge collapse from the steelmill emissions back in 1969. The section that gave way was above a smokestack belching out flouride and other noxious fumes. Also it harms fetal developement and may be the reason your son is gay.
