The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

HOW DRY I AM: Well, this happens every so often, especially when you provide your own content: the tank runs dry and you run out of things to say. Granted, you'd think that with so many things to poke fun at that you could spend a lifetime writing and still not get around to everyone who deserves a good jab. You'd think so, but you would be wrong. Life would be a lot easier if I spent the day linking to what other people have written, but I prefer writing my own stuff, whenever possible. I’ve got a couple of ideas, but nothing is really gelling into a piece at the moment. So, until I can think of something of my own, here’s a link to one my favorite essays by Benjamin Franklin, the classic Fart Proudly. Maybe I’ll recycle some of my older pieces as well. I hope the dry patch will be over soon and I’ll have something new before Christmas.
