There has just been too much going on. Period. The Pope resigns. Meteorites hit Russia where people see it happen (it wasn't unlike a 50s movie, either). The US has gone entirely out of its mind. Entirely. And we are a danger to ourselves and others so the other countries should have an intervention and get the US some help.
Why do I think the US has lost it? I'm on Facebook. If you aren't on FB I can't quite describe it. If Howard Beale were to get anywhere nowadays, he'd have to come out of FB. The world's become a strange Heinleinesque dystopia. It's not entirely horrifying nor completely hopeless, but a sick Mobius Strip of ego-driven fearful self-righteousness. And the illiteracy blows me away.
Anyway, we are in the "Days that Must Not Be Numbered" now. From mid-February until the end, I don't track dates anymore. Too many bad anniversaries. This accursed month will be over and we'll be heading toward Spring soon. I've come to really love Spring.
So with all that, let's look at what's up in Austanspace...
Oh yes, there were the Grammies too
Will it be Ouellet?
Bernie tells the truth about Congress, which we all knew but none of them ever say it
If you need a compliment,
If you're really feeling like dogshit there's only one thing to turn to
and if that didn't do it, add this
It was Oliver Reed's birthday, and here is one of his best early performances
A new reason to cry over slicing onions
If someone dear is having Downton withdrawals get em a souvenir
And remember the world can't be all bad that produces Calvin and Hobbes
