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
