the only thing i can think of to explain wearing a wife beater undershirt is that you must have gotten confused and thought intimidating your neighbors was the primary purpose of the undershirt rather than its true purpose of containing man scent and preventing those nasty underarm stains.

at some point in life i became convinced it was virtuous to save plastic cool whip and butter containers instead of throwing them out – this weekend i got over that and pitched ‘em (in to the recycle bin of course…)

my son slept in with me til 9:30; i got two home made cards and gifts; i found a $20 bill at the grocery store; the sun was shining and the sky was blue – not a bad first father’s day for me.

i’d nearly forgotten how much fun it was to read for pleasure and i’m saying that after reading a fairly mediocre story. whats worse is that orson borrows so much of the plot from his religion and it seems to me that if your going to spin a yarn around an existing story it should be better than the original. from the author: once he had been so formidable that he was surrounded by enemies. now even his enemies had lost interest in him. what clearer sign of failure could you find than that.

this experiment makes any bad day i have at the office seem like a good day in comparison. from the author: the “working poor”, as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. they neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. to be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else.
