You know that old saying about taking a negative and turning it into a positive?
Well, I think this t-shirt (actually on sale at BarackObama.com!) takes Joe Biden and turns him into a positive. 🙂
I don’t even consider it a political statement that I’ve already ordered one.
- Kurt Vonnegut Jr – “Mother Night” – I like it. A lot. I’m just shy of half-way through, and if it keeps up at this pace, it may be just as good if not better than “Slaughterhouse Five.” It’s about WWII and deals with someone who (at least where I am in the story—please don’t ruin it for me if you know of a plot twist, even though it’s been out since 1961, it’d be a spoiler to me) was an American spy that produced a LOT of Nazi propaganda. The basic question of the book seems to be “is he really guilty, and if so HOW guilty?” And the basic point of the book—as Vonnegut himself put it in the preface—is that you ARE what you pretend to be, so be careful of what you pretend to be. Good read so far.
