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)

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.
