“Harvey and I have things to do… we sit in the bars… have a drink or two… play the juke box. Very soon the faces of all the other people turn towards me and they smile. They say: ‘We don’t know your name, mister, but you’re a very nice fellow.’ Harvey and I warm ourselves in these golden moments. We came as strangers – soon we have friends. They come over.

Work, political argument, professional challenges, successes and failures, family attitudes, time demands, making ends meet, coordinating schedules of events, getting ready for a 3-day weekend trip, sadly realizing LD High School football has their last home game this Friday, figuring out how to evict the pity-party-goers trying to dominate the day, and a big one: having to deal with the absurdity and unfairness of life.

See…I told you I would: From the left side of the political aisle comes these dumb quotes…yes Virginia, the political idiots care not what they claim as their party affiliation or their political lean.
