Peter Thibeau: ‘Help save Windows XP.’
☞ Yes, please.
THEY’RE LYING TO US . . .
☞ This is an important companion piece for those who want to understand the true growth, employment, and inflation numbers. (Phillips makes it clear there’s plenty of blame for both Democrats and Republicans.)
It would be a real surprise if the worst were over, no matter how the numbers are reported.

LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED
Circling the Internet . . .
A group of professionals posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds: “What does love mean?”
The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. [Among them:]
“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.” – Rebecca, age 8
“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.” – Billy, age 4
“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” – Karl, age 5
“Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.” – Chrissy, age 6
“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” – Terri, age 4
“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.” – Danny, age 7
“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.” – Emily, age 8
“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.” – Noelle, age 7
“During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.” – Cindy, age 8
“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” – Mary Ann, age 4
“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” – Bobby, age 7
Quote of the Day
Panics do not destroy capital; they merely reveal the extent to which it has been previously destroyed by its betrayal into hopelessly unproductive works.~John Stuart Mill, 1867 (Like shopping centers in the middle of the desert. Or millions of pages of legal documents.)
