Rant: There is nothing more permanent than a temporary tax
+++++++
Rave: Joe Lieberman is too good for the Democratic Party.
+++++++
Rimshot: If not for Venetian blinds, it would be curtains for us all.
+++++++
Hmmm: Is there anything more dangerous than the earnestly well-intentioned?
+++++++
Fact: I can tell that it will quite some time before I graduate to doing Suddoku puzzles in ink.

Hmmmm: How come leaves are attracted to gutters?
