Did You Think the Randomness Was Done?

“That is only the start of the Bush campaign. He has plenty of money and unlimited personal cheapness.”
Jimmy Breslin talking about President Bush in He Molests the Dead

I think I want to see this movie.
I Remember Me
I’m not going to go to Salt Lake City to do it, though.

I don’t know how good this online magazine for and by teen girls is, but I figured I’d put the link here and let shadowkatt and mayremi give us feedback from their POV.

True Drops of Love
We must not think that our love has to be extraordinary. But we do need to love without getting tired. How does a lamp burn? Through the continuous input of small drops of oil. These drops are the small things of daily life: faithfulness, small words of kindness, a thought for others, our way of being quiet, of looking, of speaking, and of acting. They are the true drops of love that keep our lives and relationships burning like a lively flame.
–Mother Teresa

Blessed Are The Coffeemakers
By John Isbell

Blessed are those who, when they hear about suffering,
Ask a follow-up question instead of changing the subject:
The smiling wall. Blessed are the coffeemakers.
In back room, in office, in court room, in board room:
Blessed are those who make life a little easier
While others are talking. Blessed are
Students who tell a homeless navy vet
Who just wants a little flirting and affirmation
That they like sailors. Blessed are homeless people
Who collect twist-off tops to make a difference.
Blessed are those who donate two hours a week,
Because, be real. Blessed are
Those who write a check when the time comes.
Blessed are those with nothing who try to raise their kids right.
Blessed are the poor, for they shall be close to God.
Blessed are the simpletons and felons,
The crazy lady haranguing the pedestrians.
Blessed is the guy with the free flyers.
Blessed are the coffeemakers.
Blessed is your neighbor you never talk to.
Blessed are the rich, for they shit as you do.
Blessed are the dead, for their span on earth is ended.
Blessed are sinners who repent of their sins,
For that guilt they flee from shall be lifted.
Blessed are the coffeemakers.
