Kurt (Vonnegut, That Is) Says It Best

from In These Times:
    Can I tell you the truth? I mean this isn’t like TV news, is it?

    Here’s what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey.

    And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we’re hooked on.

A Neil Gaiman Poem (TM)

from Neil Gaiman's Journal:
    A Cat in the Ointment

    For some, life's one long fine surprise
    the ointment's pure: there are no flies.

    For some, life's one long disappointment
    there's only flies: there is no ointment.

    The rest of us live in the middle.
    You own the cat -- clean up the widdle.
I love Neil Gaiman.
