Like Abe Vigoda, however, Zany Optimism ctm is not dead. Please give money to your favorite aid-relief organization. I patronized Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) earlier this week, not only due to their sterling reputation, but also because they use accent marks, which always make me feel exotic and hipper.
Thanks for reading, and always remember that it shouldn't take stacks of dead, poor people in the streets for us to be reminded that 1) we should be thankful for what we have, and 2) Pat Robertson and Rush Limbaugh are uncivil embarassments of the first order, and awful, awful human beings.
(I'd have Chief Justice Roberts, for example, over for dinner any day of the week, because I respect his mind, and the conversation would be stimulating. But those other two jerk-weeds aren't making it past my front door.)
