    Flotsam and jetsam

    Hopefully the accumulated snow around the cabin will keep the impending fire bombs from breaking through as I extend to you an article by Christopher Hitchens which I mostly agree with.

    Also, am I the only one who thought Bernice King's eulogy of her mother was a little deplorable? She reduced her mother's ovarian cancer and death by complications from pneumonia to a vulgar augury. It would seem her mother is nothing more than leaves at the bottom of a glass of Greek Tea, to be cleaved and spread for the purposes of divination in an effort to expound on the current state of geopolitical idiocy. Evidently her mother's death was a message from God. I think the only message from God is a question: Why did you move your mother to a disreputable Mexican alternative medicine clinic to let her die four days after arriving? Oh yeah, like you said, God told you to do that too so you could compare alternative medicine with the alternative form of nonviolence created by your father. Anybody have some straws?

    Rant over now. Back to work.
