Farewell Dubya

January 8, 2009

Leaving aside the political disaster that he’s been to the U.S. and all the death and destruction that he unleashed upon the world, there are some other highlights to add to the great legacy that he is leaving behind.

The endless idiocies, the diplomatic embarrasments, the constant mangling of the English language, and so on.

Here then, a fitting tribute to a living court jester whose crimes against humanity will be his eternal testimonial after all the laughter ends.

May a front row seat await him in Hell.

Black Friday

October 11, 2008

As the meltdown of the global financial markets continues unabated, here’s a little ditty by the great Steely Dan, written many moons ago………….or so it seems……..

When Black Friday comes
I’ll stand down by the door
And catch the grey men when they
Dive from the fourteenth floor

When Black Friday comes
I’ll collect everything I’m owed
And before my friends find out
I’ll be on the road

When Black Friday falls you know it’s got to be
Don’t let it fall on me
When Black Friday comes
I’ll fly down to Muswellbrook
Gonna strike all the big red words
From my little black book
Gonna do just what I please
Gonna wear no socks and shoes
With nothing to do but feed
All the kangaroos

When Black Friday comes I’ll be on that hill
You know I will

When Black Friday comes
I’m gonna dig myself a hole
Gonna lay down in it ’til
I satisfy my soul
Gonna let the world pass by me
The Archbishop’s gonna sanctify me
And if he don’t come across
I’m gonna let it roll

When Black Friday comes
I’m gonna stake my claim
I’ll guess I’ll change my name

NYC National Debt Clock runs out of digits

NYC National Debt Clock runs out of digits

NEW YORK – In a sign of the times, the National Debt Clock in New York City has run out of digits to record the growing figure.

As a short-term fix, the digital dollar sign on the billboard-style clock near Times Square has been switched to a figure — the “1” in $10 trillion. It’s marking the federal government’s current debt at about $10.2 trillion.

The Durst Organization says it plans to update the sign next year by adding two digits. That will make it capable of tracking debt up to a quadrillion dollars.

The late Manhattan real estate developer Seymour Durst put the sign up in 1989 to call attention to what was then a $2.7 trillion debt.
