From Sea (Of Japan) To Shining Sea (June 11, 2012)

. . .

C1          “The tides and winds and currents are generally predictable.  So everyone knew that the floating pile of flotsam and debris and detritus was sailing inexorably from Japan to the shores of the West Coast.”   

C2          “And the people and politicians demanded that something be done.”

C1          “Something was done?  Did I miss something?”

Bumper stickers of the week:

“I don’t believe in colleges and universities.  I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money.  When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money.  I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years.”  Ray Bradbury (1920 – 2012).

“Isn’t making a smoking section in  a restaurant like making a peeing section in a pool.”  George Carlin
