  •  Good morning (8+ / 0-)

    I was going to do a nice, leisurely C&J but got caught up reading comments. Now I've gotta hustle so it will be brisk and probably full of errors.

    CHEERS to last weekend. I had fun on my weekly bike ride; it was full of animals. There were ducks, wild turkeys, a couple of pugs and a large group of bears (the kind who trim their beards occasionally). And lots of sun.

    JEERS to finding out, just now, that I may need to quickly cancel the business trip I was going to begin on Wednesday. Not because I particularly wanted to go but because it's due to an extreme technicality. The property I'm due to visit may not in fact be eligible for our programs because of one, single, resident--they might be a couple of years too young and...lots of technicalities, no need to bore you all. But it means UNMAKING the travel arrangements, uncanceling the newspaper, and coming up with dinners for the two nights I was supposed to be away.

    CHEERS to the payment of property taxes. I'm good for another six months (actually eight; the payment schedule is a bit lopsided).

    JEERS to George Will's most assinine op-ed on the "unknown effects" of marriage equality. If you want to laugh (or scream) you can read it here.

    By the way Bill, the Prop 8 and DOMA arguments at the Supreme Court are on consecutive days. Check your arithmetic. Sorry; I couldn't resist. Please forgive me and I'm surprised nobody else noticed your error. At least as far as I could tell. "Number of days until..." should be 8 and 9, not 8 and 10.

    Gotta run...later!
