Oh yes -- I long ago left the fold of Republicanism and now enjoy the political philosophy and religious views of the Militant Quakers.

Yes, I'm glad you can finally see behind the facade I put up so that when I'm drinking with the Legionaires and Legionettes I can hold my own in machismo. Deep inside I am a sensitive soul, one who cries when he very inadvertently steps upon an ant or sees a dead skunk along the highway. In truth, whenever I see such as thing as the latter, no matter how old it might be I always stop and offer a prayer or two and then, sorrowing, bury it and put a little marker on the grave with a sentiment such as this:

RIP
A Skunk
Loved By Its Family And Friends
Struck Down In Its Prime
By A Careless Driver
"It Lived To A Ripe Age"
Memento Mori.

Every month I have a Requiem Solemn High Mass read for all of the bacteria and others of God's Creatures I may have inadvertently killed. Sure, it's expensive to rent the cathedral, hire the mourners, pay the organist's fees, and find a priest who can say the Mass in Latin, but it's worth it.

I will even stop and water a plant as I walk through a park or in the woods or hills so that it will be assured enough hydration to survive.

Well, I am sure that I am not the only one taken in and duped by that gentle soul's cloud of persiflage, pretending to be a weapons-obsessed keeper of guns, swords and killing knives, and posing as a chest-beating militant weapons-mad machismo nutball. It could have fooled anyone!

Oh, Rapaire!! I have misjudged you so!! Somehow, all those posts you have written over the years about hunting folks down, and semi-auto weapons and calibres, and inventories of devices meant for wreaking havoc on others' bodies, and defending, and so on, all just completely misled me. I am so glad to see the True You instead!!!

No, you were holding the camera. Same reason I'm rarely in any photos I publish.

Dear Amos: I'm not in that picture. Those are all the Supervisors from my Library, but it does not include me. That is because I am quiet, a lover of peace, a simple man who tries to lead a simple, quiet life. Indeed, many is the time someone has said to me, "You're simple, aren't you?" and I had to agree that I was. No, that picture doesn't include me, nor was I standing downrange holding the target.

Jackalope aren't nearly so hard on potatoes as you've been led to believe. They don't actually use the antlers for spearing 'taters.

They've spread all over the West, becoming a pest. There's a bounty on each one taken, here in Bannock County. They interfere with the natural kneeding and breeding cycle of the Russetttaters.

Well, that might be fine back in the East, back where there's high humidity. Out here we're lucky to see 17% humidity, so when we finish we just leave it out for a while and stroll on about our business. Evaporation is quite rapid and it adds a drop of moisture to the air.

There's a way to avoid that "last drop" problem, Amos. What you have to do is stand there with your willy out and wait for about 15 to 20 minutes. The last drop will eventually evaporate. Problem solved.

You can, of course, speed up the process by blotting it out with some kleenex.

Or you can do what I do. Pack a battery-powered mini-hair dryer in a pack on your back. After having relieved yourself at the urinal you blot with kleenex, then blow off your willy vigorously with the hair dryer. This will result in the offending "last drop" being evaporated in jig time...figure considerably less than a minute. This is for men on the go, men whose time is valuable, men who cannot spare the delay of standing around for 15 to 20 minutes in a public (or private) washroom with their willy hanging out.

Near rhyme: Where the rhyme repeats, the sound is close but not exactly the same (given the varieties of dialect, this is probably typical of even most "perfect" rhymes in English).

                     Will't please you sit and look at her? I said
                   "Fra Pandolf" by design, for never read
                     Strangers like you that pictured countenance,
                     The depth and passion of its earnest glance,
                     But to myself they turned (since none puts by
                     The curtain I have drawn for you, but I)...

                            from "My Last Duchess," Robert Browning                        
                            (1842)

    The first two lines of the clip are perfect rhymes. The second pair are near. The third pair are nearer.

    Friend, your fugue taxes the finger
      Learning it once, who would lose it?
    Yet all the while a misgiving will linger,
      Truth's golden o'er us although we refuse it-
    Nature, thro' cobwebs we string her.

                   from "Memorabilia," Robert Browning (1896)

          "Linger" and "string her" are a near rhyme. "Lose it" and "refuse it" might be in some dialects.

                      So we'll go no more a roving
                      So late into the night,
                      Though the heart be still as loving,
                      And the moon be still as bright....

                               from "So We'll go no more a roving,"
                               Lord Byron, 1817

"Roving" and "loving," in 1817, may have been exact rhyme but we don't have any direct means of finding out.   Now, outside of Liverpool, they're near, though some may argue strictly for their being consonant rhyme.

            She'd the brooch I had bought
                         And the necklace and sash on,
                  And her heart, as I thought,
                            Was alive to my passion;
          And she'd done up her hair in the style that the Empress
             had brought into fashion.

                            from "Atalanta in Camden Town," Lewis
                            Carroll (1869)

"Sash on" and "passion" are a fine near rhyme.

    Cold-blooded, smooth-faced, placid miscreant!
       Dabbling its sleek young hands in Erin's gore,
      And thus for wider carnage taught to pant,
       Transferr'd to gorge upon a sister shore...

                   from "Don Juan," Byron (1824)
   
"Miscreant" and "taught to pant" are a good near rhyme.


Mom says that Amos owes me an apology. And a lot of punitive damages.

He marched down, he marched up,
Turned out as on parade:
A loaded shotgun in his hands
He guarded the stockade.

And from behind the wire rose
Many lamentations rude,
Gnashing teeth and wailing screams --
And suggestions very crude.

"Oh when will miscreants ever learn?"
He asked himself each day.
"They do not know and do not care,
But, like asses, always bray.

"Since they cannot grasp the ying and yang
That make up our existence,
Or understand the paradox
Of listening to the silence,

"Why should I not end their misery?
'Tis quite within my power."
And he chambered a round of double-ought
To shoot into their bower.

"But hold!" he said unto himself.
"To shoot them would be mean,
They all are human after all
And the shotgun I must then clean."

And so he held his fire and pity showed
(As one fully human would)
And contemplating life's complexities
He pondered "may" and "should".
