The NYPD were fantastic. I felt safe and in great hands at all moments during the march. I repeatedly saw officers posing graciously for photos with out-of-towners.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

And farewell Obama.

You have been the best, most inspiring President of my lifetime. I have never been prouder and more honored to be an American than during the past eight years.

We will miss you.

Thought for the Day from Abe Lincoln: On Know-Nothings and Emigrating to Russia

From Abraham Lincoln’s 1855 Letter to Joshua Speed

Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that “all men are created equal.” We now practically read it “all men are created equal, except negroes.” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty — to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy.

She says: He put the dog down
She says: I want a chocolate milkshake
She adds: And fries
She says: He said she had a good life, finally
She says: He said everyone loved her in the end
She says: I bought a new face cream called “vital glow”
She says: Try some
She says: Humility refused to make pancakes for me
She inisits: Humble won’t make me a proper breakfast
She whispers: What am I doing here?
She says: He said it was time for her to go

The Way to Have Everything

In order to know everything
don’t want to know anything at all.
In order to enjoy everything
don’t want to enjoy anything at all.
In order to own everything
don’t want to own anything at all.
In order to be everything
don’t want to be anything at all.
