work for the cure of pain
in everyone, for we all
have at least some,
exaggerated in our minds,
and may think we walk alone...
llp - mar'09

Current Residence: Southern NH, just down the street from the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center where i worked through the 70s before getting fired and barred for life from my career for participating in the 'PATCO strike of August 1981', [google it if you're curious]. i loved that job. Pres Reagan terminated 12,000 of us with a knee jerk stroke of his pen.

Personal Quote: from he to whom much is given, much will be required.
what's wrong with old 'Bushisms':

when pronounced 'nucular', nuclear is unclear - in that it obviously has no relation to granular or insular, let alone Dracula.  :hmm:

and, rather tragically, the mispronunciation, after being ignorantly spread through conservative pundits and politicians for years, is infecting some on the left.  that bothers me.  we are not that dumb.  or... are we?  :O

not related, and actually much more important:…

my renewed thanks to Andrew Sullivan for publishing this on his blog, 'The Dish'.

some beautiful music for you - "Clay" - Alison Goldfrapp -…
