Going to Hell in a Bucket

I visited Hell, with Odysseus on his journey home to Ithake.  Everyone there was quite cordial, singing the praises of their former enemies.

I watched Hell on television, as aid workers hosed off tiny little FlapJilly-sized Syrian humans, who did nothing ore heinous than wake up in the morning.

I heard about Hell on the radio today, as the use of military force was seriously considered.  Did none of the Trumpians ever see Princess Bride? William Shawn's advice was true then and it's true now - Never get involved in a land war in Asia.

Traffic in Tucson seemed to fit right in; the two or three accidents/incidents mentioned during usual rush hours blossomed into more than a dozen before I turned the noise off in frustration.

On the plus side, I felt a new connection between my leg and my belly and it showed in my performance at this afternoon's Pilates class.  It hurt like Hell when the nerves reconnected, but somehow this part of the journey through the Underworld had a bright side.

Nope, I'm still not enjoying the ride, but it gives me an excuse to share one of my favorite Grateful Dead tunes as a Have a Nice Weekend gift:

  1. I guess it's in Russian hands now whether they want a war over this. They are posturing like hell but maybe they mean it. I don't see the alternative. Obama tried working with Russian to get rid of nerve gas and it clearly didn't work. Whether a strategic strike on the base from which it flew out will change things, who knows. I do not understand Russia defending what Assad did. How can anyone defend that, anyone who loves children and wants them protected? I find it hard to understand how you get so removed from humanity :(

    1. Or is Chris Matthews right and this is a non-event cooked up by the Russians and the Trumpians to deflect attention from probes and the more obvious point you make - how is it possible to defend such barbarism?

  2. I watched the news and saw hell in Syria had to shut it off, what the you know what is up with the president of Syria he certainly is complicit in the murdering of human beings big and little..I hope he feels the hell here as I don't believe in Hell generally but I would be delighted to know this yahoooo suffers a lot of it here..I believe in Karma what goes around comes around & it will come around for him...Oh, when we want kids to stop throwing crap on our corner lot in our town I crank up Highway to Hell and garden in the front it works every time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Isn't that how they got Noriega? Or something?
      Shutting it off is necessary - ranting and raving is, too!
