Jin Shei Cover from sgreer

Something to chase away post-con blues and withdrawal symptoms

I have seldom seen something this beautiful, and so affecting. The guy who wields the strings is SEVENTY NINE - who says you can't do anything when you grow older - and he's an 8-time world champion at this, and you can see why. And the final frames, when his "birds" come in to land, made me almost weep.

Critter alert!

Young buck, all awkward grace and velvet antlers, staring at me through my study window.

Ask me if I'd ever choose to live anywhere else...

...but what I really wanted to post was this...

From WSJ opinion on-line:

"Students who had been planning to walk across the stage at graduation
ceremonies this weekend were instead walking a picket line Thursday
morning," reports Dallas's WFAA-TV:

The Trimble Tech High School seniors marched in front of Fort Worth
Independent School District headquarters to protest Wednesday's decision by
trustees to bar students who failed the TAKS [Texas Assessment of Knowledge
and Skills] test from commencement exercises.

The photo accompanying the story shows a young lady carrying a sign that
reads LET ARE KIDS WALK. We don't know whether to laugh or cry.


No, neither do I...
