The Custom House ~~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Human nature will not flourish, any more than a potato, if it be planted

and replanted , for too long a series of generations, in the same worn out

soil. My children have had other birthplaces, and, so far as their

fortunes may be within my control, shall strike their roots into

unaccustomed earth
.

Nathaniel Hawthorne





I needed to write this down, that I never forget it

Osama bin Laden is Dead

so he's gone. Will much change? I doubt it.
My constitution is still dead too. That's what bin Laden stole from me. Well, that and a Jimmy Buffett concert. I miss the constitution most.
(the Buffett concert is my personal loss from 9/11. Fairly minor it turns out, in the grand scheme of things. At the time I was pizzzzzzed!)
And truthfully, if we'd had a real president during the attacks of 9/11, my Constitution might still be in better shape. So really, Bush is as much to blame as bin Laden, if not more.
Still... I am glad he's gone. I hope it helps to bring closure to the many , many people the world over that have suffered so much loss because of his actions. It won't bring their people back, but perhaps they will feel a sense that justice has been served in some way.
So now, can we please bring our troops home. Can we please just cut Israel a giant check and tell them to budget it well. That this is the last one? I'm tired of my country sticking it's nose in places it not only doesn't belong, but is decidedly not wanted.
Fracken oil. That's has to be the real issue. Money changes everything as Cyndi Lauper once sang.
Well ... I hope something else will be on the news soon.
Obama will probably lose the election because he won't release the photos. I saw somewhere that Palin was criticizing Obama for the way things were done to take OBL down. She probably wanted to take her moose gun, or what ever it is, over there and fill him full of holes herself. I'm so sick of that brainless wench.
Well, so it seems that really I'm just purging my personal irritations here. I try to not discuss this kind of thing with hardly anyone except Richard. Too inflammatory, and I can't take it when people get all wound up over crap they have no control over.
so...if somehow someone ends up reading this, consider it my place to dump my personal feelings.
Let's start trying to make this country a place that's fun to live in again. Like when Ford invented the Mustang. And Leave it to Beaver was our reality TV.

I'm really tired ...
