Odds & ends

From the Austin Craig's List R'n'R: "Members of Congress should be required to wear uniforms just like NASCAR drivers . . . so we could identify their corporate sponsors."
"One must always have in mind one simple fact — there is no literate population in the world that is poor, and there is no illiterate population that is anything but poor." – John Kenneth Galbraith. Argue with that if you dare.
A comment from somewhere: 'He then talked about the quaint essential picnic …' Really love that one; it's a wonderful bit or word torture.
And, finally, a lick from a blog comment: "'The road to excess leads to the palace of wisdom...for we never know what is enough until we know what is more than enough.' -- William Blake." That's the spirit that leads to an interesting life and hangovers.
