Okay, okay, the economy is tanking and Winter's almost here. It's been cold and grey and rainy in Indy, and even colder and rainier at GM and on Wall Street. The .gov has $700 billion about half-spent and they're not sure they've actually bought anything but a handful of magic beans; me, I doubt they even got plain beans, let alone magic ones. (Washington is a reverse Philosopher's Stone, turning gold into dross with speed and verve -- and style, oh! What style! Idiots).
But today -- only today -- the meat-eating urologists are talking about sunshine and a high approaching 60. It might not be much but it's something and I intend to enjoy it. Sunshine doesn't cost a dime.

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
