When 24/7 cable TV weather hysterics struck, Baby was calm beside Goomp's scratch post yesterday afternoon.
Anyone who's been paying attention knows it's all about reminding people who haven't been paying attention that it's "all Bush's fault."
Goomp's Mr. Perkins -- AKA Purrky -- carries no brief for all-Jon-Benet-all-the-time and its multifarious variants, let alone Bush Lied, People Died.™
We're prone to following Papa Ratzi's admonition [via Miss Kelly] to make room for "prayer and contemplation." Speaking during his Sunday address at his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, the pope quoted from the writings of St. Bernard of Chiaravalle, who lived in the 11th and 12th centuries:
"We have to guard ourselves, the saint observed, from the dangers of excessive activity, regardless of the office one holds, because too many concerns can often lead to hardness of heart," the pope said.
"This warning is valid for every type of job, even those concerned with the government of the church."
