A Couple of Random Thoughts On A February Day
First, the whole Michael Phelps kerfuffle. The champion swimmer gets his pic snapped sucking on a bong. I'm not in favor of the ganja but I'm not opposed to it, particularly, either. But it does lead to this fantasy:
Swimmer Michael Phelps today expressed his support for the Mexican bid to host the Olympic Games. Said the multiple medal winner: "I'd really like to get my hands on some Acapulco gold."

And then in the mood of these parlous, Shakespearean times, one is tempted to rewrite The Bard
, specifically, a famous phrase from "Richard III," to fit the mood of the electorate and this lie of a "stimulus" bill.
Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this ton of pork!
