I wish I could be more charitable to this woman who is now our First Lady, but her hubris is horrendous. Almost as bad as her wardrobe. The sad thing is that she pays people to advise her on her choice of clothing but she wears this kind of thing anyway. Ah well, at least winter is coming and she will have to dress more warmly. Think of it as a change of weather we can believe in.
The world definitely needs many more librarians than it has now.
The world also needs to get shut of a whole lot of lawyer-types. You know the kind I mean: you hire one to resolve a problem and find out that a phone call on your behalf is worth more than a week’s worth of groceries even if you do all your shopping at Whole Foods, including their useless toilet paper.
Here’s to the librarians. They teach children to love reading; they forgive adults some of those horrendous overdue fines. Whilst talking to you, they run their hands over a book as though they were soothing one of their children.

Oops…almost forgot the fB update.:
New coughing pattern has developed. Is he getting better or is it pneumonia setting up shop in his lungs? Only time will tell: another doctor visit tomorrow to read the entrails of a duck – or a swine – and give us the news.
He seems to feel better, but the cough is unsettling (if you have parents’ ears). On the other hand, the doctor’s ears and her stethoscope will provide enough information to know if he can leave for home and start that new job he’s been offered. They’ve been nice enough to keep his spot open until he gets better.
Good thing he has such an understanding employer because we went through his Sallie Mae loans tonight. The same people who wrote the health care bill must have written the college loan paperwork. Remember how obfuscatory those credit card “disclosures” are? Square that and you have Sallie Mae. Corruption, one of thy names is “higher” education. What a mess.
The fB’s girl friend is beautiful, however. I think I’ll keep her.
