testrun

so we be gonna try this word processing program works on wysiwyg or so says but not clear it does footnoes but it do colors, and who can complain about, and it does hyperlinks, and then it publishes the damn things, says you can post to blog too, so i'll be goddamned on that one, nearly 8 weeks into my fractured femur with its tricked out titanium rod, i'm finally physical therapy and trying to fix my shoulder (right) that went all spastic with the walker and now has knots the size of golf balls and let me tell it like it is as howard cossell used to say, when he would drive nuts those who couldn't tell it like it was and knew that howard wasn't either that had he done so he'd have been driven off the air, never to return for speaking truth is seldom rewarded--we all want approximations, some of us closer to the bone than others and some want only the deceits and deceptions that portray for them the world they want, and i think we all--me and the few readers of this blog know who i'm talking about, but i'm not here to kick the bushbucker-in-chief, but rather to ask who comes next from the putative other side--gore looks best if he be gore but he didn't fight for it the last times--hills be a weasel --obama a disappointment--and the rest--please--and let's not do the 'anybody but' routine, fact is american politics be bankrupt--duh--questions are how to fix it, who will fix it--and let's not say 'the people,' though clearly they play a part....

The last two election debacles were the result of many mistakes (including Gore's failure to carry his home state, which alone would have turned the election), but the saddest to me is the idealistic, pure, understandable mistake of the Nader voters.

Everything is easy in hindsight. But this time, let's keep in mind Ben Franklin's old insight "If we do not hang together, we will hang separately."

On a personal note, it is always refreshing to read your insights. Keep it up. Many of us read who do not post.

Also, I was damn sorry to hear about the break in your leg. Best wishes for a steady and secure recovery.

This Dog can't disagree about Tennessee and Nader--at least in terms of exonerating some Nader voters, but the man himself cynically manipulated those idealists for his own egotistical ends--or to defeat Gore because he, Nader, (option 2) was secretly of the party of the Bushbucker.
