But first . . .

Wrote David Frum some months ago: “This tweet deserves to be quoted forever.”  So it’s not too late:


Some people think he’s playing chess when actually his aides are trying to keep him from eating the pieces.

(Or you could read the longer version, by Anonymous, shipping next Tuesday.)

And second:

Among the many worthy Veteran’s Day posts and stories yesterday was a link to Jason Kander’s Veterans Community Project and their wonderful “tiny houses.”

OK.  And now:

Yesterday, the talking dog.  Today, more profoundly: wolves.

From Sara Softness (thanks!):

An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life.

He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf is evil — he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority, and ego.

“The other is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

“This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.”

They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

→ “Deep,” as the stoners used to say.  No?
