and now a word from Mahatma Ghandi...

As Winston Churchill once said over a tumbler of sherry:



"Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion is." -- Mahatma Gandhi

"Sometimes I wonder if we shall ever grow up in our politics and say definite things which mean something, or whether we shall always go on using generalities to which everyone can subscribe, and which mean very little." -- Eleanor Roosevelt

"Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber." -- Plato


"The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods."[H. L. Mencken]

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." [H. L. Mencken]


"I got nuthin'"
Barack Obama


Although this isn't what I was expecting, I still like it.

Maybe the other idea could be a "special" full-page illustration in the Quiptoon book?


Maybe it would have been better if Eleanor had been president & FDR had been first schmuck.

Doc Al:

Sorry to nitpick, but I believe the exact quote is:
"Uhh, uhh, I got nuthin"
Barack Obama


It just struck me how much Ghandi looks like Ben Kingsley. Weird, huh?


I hate it when people try to write in dialect & mess it up. The quote would most likely be:

"Uhhh... Uhhh... I, uhhh... I go[t--t]uhhh... Uhhh..."

(long pause)

"I got nuthin'."

That long, delayed, tied-"T" is very important. Read more Mark Twain & less Zora Hurston, Tea Cakes.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

My wife, I met many years ago at a party. Chris is immediately caught my eye. She had long blonde hair back then and a great figure. Although, so here I was, I raised them. We talked about our future plans. Christiane has entrusted to me that she has always dreamed of being able to work with an international company. They also wanted to buy a nice house with a large garden and garden sauna. Moreover, they wanted to establish in the shortest time a family. Chriastiane did a very nice impression on me. We've talked the whole evening together. We have this very well understood. It has been proven that we have the same hobbies, so travel and cars. We began to meet regularly. After 5 months I have been married Christiane. I was very happy that we have concluded the marriage. After a year we bought a beautiful Gaus, a cook and garden sauna. Chris was overjoyed. I was also glad each time when I have seen Chris smiled. She is my half. I can not imagine how my life will be like without them.
