Fuck it! It's Links for You.

I am severely depressed.

Coakley,Health Care, Indefinite Detention and some folk's hound.
And then the cherry-on-top.

Still, Roy can lift the corners of my mouth.

Think about it: Bill Hicks is dead and Jay Leno is coming back to The Tonight Show. And you still think there's a God?

Bill and Molly Ivins are sitting on a cloud working on reincarnation.

The material wites itself.

On Being An Optimist

So, the other shoe has dropped.
First clunk from the apt. overhead was the election. We won. Yay!
The Administration installed a Wall Street-approved bunch to stabilise an horrible situation. This was thoroughly understandable.
Smart thing was, Big O left (get it?) an out. A guy to whom to pass it when the other team's defense collapsed into the lanes. Pass it to the outside. That would be Volcker

Thank you for your service Secretary Geithner.
You didn't fail Larry, but you may have to go to summer school.


ps I actually heard a Republican today say, "I hope they (R's) don't get overconfident". Yay!

Dollars to Doughnuts she got the tbogg from this thread.
I got it bwo Betty
It really is a wonder; an amazement.
You know, some of these bloggers are kinda smart.

Another tease:

Progressives are really really sincere people. Liberals can’t be bothered.

I (Heart) Jimbo Riley

'scuse me while I put my glasses on.

I'm guessing that if you brought together the great theologians of the age (I'm joking, but just play along) and asked them to contribute to an anthology entitled "What Works in Spirituality?" that you'd learn the continuing existence of Evil in the world, despite our having discovered the One True Religion any number of times over, is the fault of practically everyone except theologians.

Houston 2010


Now go and enable Atrios's trolley wonderland.
G;ive us transit corridors that people are willing to pay more to live on.
Give us a walkable set of neighborhoods and schools to tempt the Sugarland/Katy/Pearland/Woodlands "flighters" back to dense urban living.

And I want a pony.
