What I am saying is no President is ever liked. Not a one. The closest perhaps was Franklin Roosevelt, and maybe Washington. No matter who is President, someone is out to get him to shoot him, stab him, or throw a grenade at him. There are no bad Presidents. They are humans with extraordinary drives and intellect, and with human failings and a fair amount of stupidity, just like the rest of us. What people want is a fairy -God-President. And when they finally get one, I'm sure, given the way things work, he'll eventually turn out to be all the worst things of all Presidents all wrapped into one. But, boy, won't everyone be so happy in the meanwhile.


Give me a break -- this microcephalic behaves like Herman Hand-Up_me most of the time. I would not let my kids listen to his words, they may grow up to BE a cowboy! They don't call it S--T for notin'.

Obviously there is a dentist in the house working on rotting teeth.

Now who is the dentist, and who has the rotting teeth?

Yeah - "Fahrenheit 9/11"!

Sorry.

Hey, it has a Bradbury connection, so it's appropriate.

She stood silently looking out into the great sallow distances of sea bottom, as if recalling something, her yellow eyes soft and moist...

Thanks Doug! There was a definite race with the clock, so I could not take as many pictures as I would have liked in order to get "the" one. I have now seen two Mercury transits and one rare Venus transit about two years ago. It was already in progress when sunrise occurred and there was not a whole lot of time on that one either. It was a pretty, clear spring morning. This is considerably larger and easier to see than Mercury. The suns disk is on the left, eyepiece edge on right and Venus is exiting to the left. I had to hunt up my disk with the pictures on it, its a good comparison. Makes me think of The Long Rain. Thanks again D.S.

Awesome pictures, Robo.

Your sunrise looks like our sunset. Our sunrises aren't the most breathtaking but they are usually highlighted by the silver-lined clouds. It's our sunsets that are magical with the pinks and the blues and the smog induced hues, violet and scarlet and yet-to-be-named shroom colors too.

"Sunrise, sunset; sunrise, sunset..."

Dandy still here? Wondering how the rehearsals are going. I'm rehearsing like mad for our Christmas Concert:

Thanks, Grass. For the Venus shot, I went very early to a park about four miles from where I live. It was perfect in every way.

Frank, watch your language!!! Why did you have to bring up college and old memories. I remember Freshmen having to attend an 8:00 AM P E Lecture Class ON SATURDAY. Talk about punishment. Whatever they were saying I never really got it, i.e., hard to absorb information when you are sleeping.

(from "Horsefeathers" - Groucho as Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff)
Wagstaff: ...Have we got a stadium?
Professor One: Yes.
Wagstaff: Have we got a college?
Professor One: Yes.
Wagstaff: Well, we can't support both. Tomorrow we start tearing down the college.
Both professors: But professor! Where will the students sleep?
Wagstaff: Where they always sleep. In the classroom!

Smog? Here in California! Surely not!
