Caution: hidden meaning alert

Too damned much violence and hot political BS. What say let’s take a break today…

“And then there is terrestrial spring, which is a matter of hints and wishes, promise and hope, a season that is only vaguely calendrical. (Verlyn Klinkenborg, NYTimes, March 30, 2010)

"The sky was the color of Edgar Allan Poe's pajamas."
(Tom Robbins)

"Memory is a crazy woman that hoards colored rags and throws away food." (Austin O'Malley, Keystones of Thought)

"I'll tell you what justice is. Justice is a knee in the gut from the floor on the chin at night sneaky with a knife brought up down on the magazine of a battleship sandbagged underhanded in the dark without a word of warning. Garroting. That's what justice is."
(Joseph Heller, Catch-22, 1961)

"Men's words are bullets, that their enemies take up and make use of against them." (George Savile, Maxims)

A man may break a word with you, sir, and words are but wind."
(Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors)

There. Maybe that fluffs your gestalt.

Masterful fluffage, but my mood is the color of Edgar Allen Poe's pajamas; I revisited my retirement portfolio today.
