    I’s need more nothing time for sure but it won’t be today!

    I sent out the NYT Obama article to a bunch of friends this morning and now I am expecting the onslaughts!

    Also yesterday was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty delta day, and it “Seems like nothin’ ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge”

    Oh my, how could anybody of my generation have forgotten that? How remiss of me!

    There was a time I sincerely wondered what “she and Billie Joe McAllister” tossed off the Tallahatchie Bridge (an aborted fetus was always the #1 guess). There was a much longer time when I thought I’d pitch my radio through a window if it ever played that inescapable song again.

    I just happen to be reading a bio on John Adams and other Founders, and noticed interesting parallels to Adam’s opinions of himself, his countrymen and how he thought he knew what’s best for them. Obama apparently feels the same.

    Definitely a vastly bigger deal than Billie Joe McAllister jumping off the Tallahatchie Bridge.
