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..." "...it 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) akakyakakyevich@gmail.com

JUST A THOUGHT: I have seen the future, as Lincoln Steffens famously didn’t say, and it is more than a little bizarre, to say the least. Who would have thought, even ten short years ago, that it would be possible someday to have a political sex scandal where no one involved actually had sex with each other? The advances in immorality these days are nothing less than mind-boggling, I tell you. In other news, I am trying to ascertain if the Biblical prohibition against eating meat sacrificed to idols extends to wearing socks that our children’s librarian has used as a sock puppet pig. I am pretty sure that it doesn’t, that a polyester sock is still polyester even if used for a porcine purpose, but I want to be sure about that.
