McCain done good tonight. Finally, we had a DEBATE! He definitely got under Barry's skin a few times. Obama continued his Chauncy Gardener-like vague platitudes. I'm dumbfounded that Obama has gotten as far as he has. Sigh. I read a good quote today, I forget where:

“Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in
herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.”
Charles Mackay

I hope this debate gets people to come to their senses, one by one.

I was watching the History Channel this morning, and it told of the continual seduction of humans to mass together and wage war for some cause. The cause maybe religious or for the common good type ideology such as communism. Let us hope that OB is not successful in leading such a cause.

You are very kind, Sissy. I continue to believe that while nothing excites our political passions quite so much as people or governments telling us what to do with our land, nothing unites us quite like a shared love of place, even if my particular place and yours are different.

What an enchanting read, Sissy! I'm not what you would ever call an outdoor person - I love LOOKING at nature without actually having to BE in nature (I'm unusually attractive to mosquitoes despite eating vast quantities of garlic; doesn't seem to lessen my attraction for the little vampirettes), but this post almost made me think about actually going outside voluntarily.

On second thought though, I tend to agree with some New York pundit who said that the great outdoors is what you traversed when leaving one's apartment to enter a taxicab!

As always, Babe and Tiny are delightful!
