Around the World with Mr. Putty

Melissa the Home Schooling Guru has a hilariously simple idea.

Much more edifying that "Where in the world is Matt Lauer."

For some reason (okay, for the reason that I'm a slothful toad) I've been meaning to add Melissa and her husband Scott's blogs to the blogroll---they live right around the block from Rancho non-Sequitor, and are a lot of fun to boot. There's not much in the political world that Scott and I agree on, I think, but as I like to tease Moonbat Mad Scientist LB Buddy, I need to keep folks like that around in case I'm completely wrong. But the way I see it the two guys who the neighbors look at askance because we hang out in our basements and write all night long need to not let a little thing like the sharpest political divisions since the Civil War divide us.

We need to save that for something real, like the historic discrimination and second class status heaped upon Aquaman.

Yeah, I suspect you’re right about our political differences. But as I’ve said on my blog in the past, half my family, half my friends, half my co-workers and virtually all of Top Management’s friends are conservatives, not to mention virtually our entire neighborhood, as are a disproportionate number of the best people I’ve ever known. I got no problems with conservatives—heck, I love conservatives. It's just (most of) the folks y’all elect I can't stand. :) But I'm fully aware that that goes both ways. And, hey, Jefferson and Adams didn’t exactly always see eye-to-eye, now did they? And the country seems to have come out better for it. [Not that I'm comparing myself to either of those august persons, of course.]

Besides, as you say, us cellar-dwellers got to stick together. And what the heck, we’ll always have the Pixies.

Oh, and I'm totally with you on the Aquaman thing. He was one of my favorites as a kid. But I've never quite recovered from the skewering Dr. Katz gave him. Oy.
