Best quote I've read in a long time:

"As a former Texas governor, Miriam 'Ma' Ferguson, is said to have declared when she opposed the teaching of foreign languages: 'If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it’s good enough for us.'"

Oh dear.

Was talking to my sister yesterday. She lives in the Adirondacks and was telling me that every so often the ptb set up roadblocks on all the roads leading from Canada (very far from the border) so officials can interrogate people. They make you explain where you are going, make you show your id, want to know what's in the boxes you're carrying, etc. So my sister, who is a New Yorker, cannot drive from one town in New York to another town in New York without being harassed.

Is this even our country any more? I hardly recognize it. And I feel less safe now than ever.

Ah, that's better. Now that I've been mollified by delicious high-fat food and low-brain teevee, I am no longer feeling ranty. Everything's going to be okay.
