“To business that we love we rise betime, And go to’t with delight.” – Antony & Cleopatra

It’s Monday.  I’m tired from the weekend.  I’d rather turn around and crawl back into bed.  If you feel like I do, here’s hoping you at least like your job, so rising on Monday morning and getting to it, if not a “delight,” at least isn’t half bad.  😉

“Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines.” – Sonnet 18

There is an extreme heat advisory in St. Louis today.  It is supposed to top 100 degrees, with a heat index approaching 117.  I noticed last night, at around 10:30 p.m. it was 95 degrees!  At 10:30 p.m.!  Stay cool everyone…

4th of July

July 4th, 2011 → 7:11 am

“Liberty!  Freedom!  Tyranny is dead!” – Julius Caesar

I’ve been rather negative in this blog so far, on politicians, the economy, people.  So I decided it was about time to show a little positivity!  America does a lot of things wrong – and god knows I’ll continue commenting on them in future blog posts - but in truth, it does even more right.  Happy 4th of July everyone!  Whoop Whoop!

DSK Affair

July 2nd, 2011 → 7:11 am

“Reputation is an idle and most false imposition; oft got without merit, and lost without deserving” – Othello

I feel this describes what happened to DSK and to his accuser.  At first, DSK was evil and she was pure as snow, now he isn’t evil and she’s a blackguard.  Both “reputations” have to be simplistic.  Personally, I think he did it.  As my mom always said, judge a man by how he’s treated women before you.  And how many hotel maids go to work every day looking for sex?  C’mon.  But still, there could be nuance and that’s what the media (and society?) doesn’t seem to quite understand.
