Cobb said she was as wide as three rows of cotton, but fast and agile. She outran all the young'uns."

You read the paper, or if you're into that sort of thing you read a book, which is just the same as watching only even more boring.

And you know, it's got so bad that I've started to notice, the people on TV? Inside the TV? Half the time they're watching TV. Or if you've got some romance in a movie?

Characters are flawed. Be unlikeable. Be flawed. Be a person."

You cry when seasons six and seven really don't reflect the quality of seasons one through five except for the musical episode."

But for a century, children's early understanding of how cities and nature fit together was gained from the backseat: the empty farmhouse at the edge of the subdivision; the variety of architecture, here and there; the woods and fields and water beyond the seamy edges--all that was and still is available to the eye. This was the landscape that we watched as children. It was our drive-by movie."
Author: Richard Louv

Today's Quote

Another tradition to politics, a tradition (of politics) that stretched from the days of the country's founding to the glory of the civil rights movement, a tradition based on the simple idea that we have a stake in one another, and that what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart, and that if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done."
Author: Barack Obama
