It's when I see news like this that I think, "Well thank goodness they raised the debt ceiling!"

Tiny Dancer

For anyone who remembers life in the 1970s--and that was the decade of my childhood--it has to give one a chuckle to look at this and think, "Aaaahhhh...simpler times, simpler times." 

But they certainly were.

And I defy anyone who looks down their noses at rock 'n' roll or popular music to listen to this and deny that it can and often does rise to the level of great art.

At the Mountains of Budgetary Bullshit Madness

As of this writing it appears that there may finally be a deal between Congressional Republicans and Democrats to resolve the ongoing crisis over the unjust limitations upon the U.S. government's ability to expand its vast mountain of debt. To which I say, praise be to the gods! It looks like we may not be cast into the economic abyss after all. Thank goodness! But there is still a chance that this agreement may not come to pass, which of course would spell certain doom for all mankind. For surely we would then be headed for a disaster of biblical proportions--fire and brimstone coming down from the skies; seas boiling; earthquakes; volcanoes; the dead rising from the grave; human sacrifice; dogs and cats living together--mass hysteria!
