I’m basically taking the day off. But . . .
WHAT TO NAME THE DECADE
After I referred to “The Awful Oughts” Tuesday, George Mokray wrote in to say, “I saw one British paper called the first decade of this century ‘The Naughties’ which is very good. I call it ‘The Uh Ohs’ – and have for quite a while.”
THE DEMISE OF THE DOLLAR
James Musters: “Forget the Oil nations not taking the dollar any more, this is what will drive the exchange rate!”
☞ It’s a lot easier to carry drug money in 500 euro notes than $100 bills – takes just a seventh as many.
There are only 135 calories in a mango. Can you believe it? Nice and cold and ripe – don’t try to be genteel or mannerly, just slice and slurp. Does it get any better than this?
Bob Miller: “I’ve been looking for something this easy for years. Go to teuxdeux.com and watch the little 2-minute video. The sign-up is quick and easy. You’ll love it.”
☞ Boy, if all apps were this simple, and all demos this amusing. It may or may not fit into your life “system” (you do have a system, don’t you?). But it’s definitely worth a look. (Click the choice on the left: VIDEO.)
At the top of your To Deux list: See “Invictus.”
WHAT’S A LIBERAL?
In those days, before it became a dirty word, Jack [Kennedy] had no compunction about calling himself a liberal. But he was careful to define the word lest his opponents define it for him. “If, by a liberal, they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people – their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties – someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad … if that is what they mean by a liberal, then I’m proud to say that I’m a liberal.”
☞ Have a great weekend.
