Yes, he was a member of the Legion. Back then discipline was much more lax (laxer?) than it is now, and for his thievery he was simply stood up against a wall and shot. Today things would be much worse. "The Legion Does Not Tolerate Stealing From Its Own" and the Legion dug the hole for the original Library Outhouse.

IF so, he probably didn't bring it up in the application or interview process. Much as Mike loves cataloguing the misadventures of the hoary rascals of the Legion, I don't think he would go so far as to propose hiring one of them.

minutes of the Library Board for 1911 also report that "(the janitor) was found in a drunken state Aug. 24, he had broken open the money drawer and taken $30. Three nights later he broke out the front of the drawer... He was arrested...."

A member of the Legion?

nuthin' secret about MOM.

Fact is, these days, if we don't keep a close eye on her, she just lets everything hang out.

Well, if I had to log in I might try 3898 as a login and 2082321263 as a password. But that would be a "might try" and it might not work. But if it DID work I'd also look at last Sunday's front page and Insight sections.

The thing about meaningless bullshit is...everyone can relate to it, and most people can even sort of understand it. ;-) This is why it is the most vital factor in an election campaign.

The venerable Onion has finally vindicated all our baser instincts by revealing the political power of total BS as an issue for voters all over the country.

"For a majority of likely voters, meaningless bullshit will be the most important factor in deciding who they will vote for in 2008", the intrepid reporters of the Onion tell us.

I just know Mom will be so thrilled when she fires up her browser this morning.

Whacking ANYTHING off can lead to health problems, like copious loss of body fluids, traumatic bone and nerve damage, shock, and even death. Just ask Ann Boleyn or Charles I or lots of other whack-offs.

SSSSshhhhhhh! We don't use that word around here! This is an organic yard, without harmful chemcials, and I live a few yards from a creek, so anything that goes on the yard is bound to end up in the water after a little while. Vinegar has been used on this before and worked, but I didn't follow through and the grass has created its own little ecosystem and mulched soil on the concrete and is thriving as it captures more dirt and nutrients. So I'm picking up these little islands of sod that are anchored in place by the crack in the concrete.

keep in mind that cornerstones, in general, take getting laid a lot less seriously than, say, high-school juniors

You have got to be kidding!

Even a cursory study of the subject will tell you that cornerstones exist to get laid. Granted, most of them do it only once, and then just lie their quiescient for the remainder of their lifetimes; but to get laid is the be-all and end-all of a cornerstones existance.

JUST like most high school juniors.

No, it was definitely possibly laid maybe on October 16, 1907. Senator James Brady may have spoken at the original event, and we're pretty sure the stone was perhaps cemented into place by the Masons in a silver trowel ceremony

We should keep in mind that cornerstones, in general, take getting laid a lot less seriously than, say, high-school juniors.

Long-term Roundup, Stilly. Works wonders on plants in driveway cracks.

Gonna be 46 F. and 60% chance of precipitation today.

We had the doin's yesterday inside, as it was "raw" outdoors. 73 people, and we went through 2.5 sheeet cakes (the staff got the rest).

I want to get something for the staff to say "Thank you."

At 10 a.m. I have a staff pre-Agenda meeting so that tomorrow I can attend the Council pre-agenda meeting so that I might have to attend the Council meeting tomorrow evening so that we can accept another US $5K or so for additional computers for the public. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Drizzly today so the roofers weren't out in the neighborhood, but they are scheduled to roof a house up the street this week, so will stop by to give me samples and we can update the quote.

I can't afford a new stone or cobbled driveway like Amos or my next door neighbors, but out of solidarity I did go out this weekend and start digging the big patches of grass out of the cracks that run the length of my drive. After yesterday's rain I should get more done if I attack it again tomorrow evening. (Sick kid activities today, no leisure for yard work.)

The driveway is beautiful, but on testing the sprinkler circuits (all of which were cut and re-glued during the replacement of the driveway) I find one of the circuits has been divided between two valves, and another of the circuits has been left unconnected. Verya nnoying. Some of the pavers will have to be taken up and the gluing redone for those connections.

But my son is doing great, and Barky is doing great, and life is still good. Stilly, Barky is not full time yet with the All Women's Band so her photo is not in the website pictures.

"Helen being chosen found life flat and dull
And later had much trouble from a fool,
While that great Queen, that rose out of the spray,
Being fatherless could have her way
Yet chose a bandy-leggèd smith for man.
It's certain that fine women eat
A crazy salad with their meat
Whereby the Horn of Plenty is undone. "

The Democratic Party just replaced the 5 x 8 foot flag that was stolen from the pole in front of the Library. In about 1.5 hours the next round of centennial stuff starts. The mellerdramer we had last evening, "Alaska, or the Mountain Beyond," attracted 120 people.

Is she in one of those photos, Amos?

Rap, we're looking at $10K as well on our little roof because I have to put in some serious ventilation to spare future roofs (and perhaps our heating/cooling bill). Metal is way expensive (the raised seam variety). Several neighbors have metal shingles made to look like shakes. Several neighbors still have the original shakes on houses 30 and more years old. They repair them every so often. There are fibreglass shingles and asphalt shingles. Metal would be nice, but way over the budget, I fear.

I have gone to work, and am at work, and shall go to work again tomorrow and tomorrow, creeping in this petty pace from day to day to help build a good life for myself, and my BBW, and my best-beloved Barky. Who, by the way, sat in as first trumpet with Ellen Seeling's Montclair Women's Big Band last month and pulled off an impeccable performance on her golden horn, solos and all.

But no, I was just saying thanks to Mom. I am in a mood today, feeling blessed by all the beauty in my life -- including the ineffable, profound, elevating and illuminating radiance of a thread of BS over twenty thousand posts long.
