The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

On the subject of those looney leftie liberal anti-globos holding a rally in Washington in support of the PLO, from an excellent Bleat today:
"Death to the Jews, death to Israel.

Stated and applauded.

In America. In Washington. On the Mall.

I had a sudden flash of Martin Luther King Jr. standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, beholding this rally, and thinking: I have a nightmare. And here it is."

This is why I love Lileks. He can sum up the entirety of my feelings on a subject so perfectly. The mark of a good writer.

The perfect cat sits on my lap while I work on the computer for hours and does not protest when I scatter crumbs all over his little head. He also seems strangely driven to sit on my head while I sleep. When not perched atop my head, he lets me cuddle him like a little teddy bear. His vision seems back to normal, thank heaven.

The X Files was such a great show for so many years. Now I haven't watched it in months and I can't bring myself to care how it ends. They really should have ended it at six or seven seasons. This is just dragging it out. Having checked "Aint it Cool News" I feel better for not being interested. Apparently it sucked. They kill the Lone Gunman and are all set to kill Mulder. You have to give people some hope that everything will turn out right. You can't just screw the audience by killing characters without any point. Bleah. Maybe the next movie will redeem Chris Carter.
