the glory of the story

I think most of us in the prosess of growing older gradually uncounsciously supress the creative part of our intellect. Meaning that we don't use the ability to make up stories as much as we did as children. I've started working as a substitute kindergarden assistent! It's stressful and tiresome but gives so much energy at the same time. And the other day when I was there I became aware of how the children constantly made up random little stories with no connection to reality. Do you make up stories? Should we write some stories on the blog?

Ann Coulter: Hillary is "absolutely more conservative" than John McCain

Okay, so dramarama, brazenly conservative pundit Ann Coulter has come out and said that if it comes down to John McCain vs. Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton is the best choice for Republicans. Why? Because she's "absolutely more conservative" than he is! But what about all of that business about nationalizing health care and pulling out of Iraq? Coulter doesn't thing she actually will -- "she's running in a Democratic primary," after all, so what else would she say? Coulter reminds us of Clinton's Bush-like answer to a debate question as to what she would do if three cities were attacked: "I will find who did it, and I will go after them." (Sound familiar?) So, not only would Ann "If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans" Coulter vote for Hillary Clinton, she would campaign for the former first lady.

ZOMG. I think this says a lot about Mrs. Clinton and her... broad-based appeal?
