Ronni's excellent post on what is being done to/in our country.
I'm still buried with my book project (it's no longer a project -- it's become a mission) but I'm trying to keep up with y'all as well as the antics occurring in the world so I'm indulging in some silliness in the interest of maintaining a wee modicum of sanity in a world that's gone mad.
Kent McKamy, whose emails help me maintain a modicum of sanity, sent along an excellent and funny piece that he received that not only made me laugh, but gave me food for thought. He talked about collective nouns -- you know: a gaggle of geese, a flock of sheep, a school of fish, and my favorite: an exaltation of larks. However, he included one that I really think is pertinent to today's political climate: a congress of baboons and that, my friends, set me a-thinkin'. And henceforth, I shall refer to Speaker of the House, John Boehner, as the Chief Baboon.
