And Then It's All Quiet….

All quiet on the refugee front from our main 'news' outlets is it not? Is it all over? Have they all been found suitable accommodation and meaningful employment? Have they given up and are now heading for home? What's to do? Tell you what's to do; it's a blue do when you have to tune into RT on the TV to get an idea of what's to do out there.

In other news I see that over the past few days our 'leaders' have been all over the media like a rash castigating, in the strongest possible 'Oh yea?' terms, Vlad the Lad for getting a grip and, by request, starting to bomb a bunch of bad guys. Meanwhile the best the good guys have managed is to bomb some other good guys, in a hospital no less, with nary even a 'Whoops' as comment from our 'leaders'.

You may find this interesting over at The Slog.

Never mind, just to prove we truly have a grip on things over here, today we start being charged for plastic carrier bags at supermarkets and the like. This will, indeed, make the world a safer place. Especially if you're a Bottle-nosed Dolphin dumb enough to try eating plastic carrier bags.

"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country."

Ref: Mr. Vonnegut - my peregrinations about the SW are enhanced by my habit of listening to stuff I have downloaded from YooToob, converted to mp3 and loaded on to a USB stick. Said stick is inserted into the front of my Highly Specialised radio in t' truck and I trundle about singing along or crying with laughter ... anyway, George Carlin had I laffin when he observed, “Think of how stupid the average person is ... and then realise half of them are stupider than that.” And, arithemetically at least, he is absolutely right.

Ah, good ol' George. I must confess to missing that line of his and thank you very big for posting it.
Again, good ol' George.
