So - did the alarm system work or was there just no call for it to go off?

Mary Vagner is the Superintendent of the local School District and the other two are also 'way up there in the District hierarchy.

You're lucky they're working on something like that. Here in Fort Worth they just cut way back on hours on all of the libraries. Libraries and parks are easy targets for budget cutters. Some that used to be open seven days a week and evenings are now open a few hours a day five days a week. It's a real blow.

A POX on those who turn away from books, say I. It would be like turning your back on dogs--a denial of loyal friends and unquestioning supporters, a betrayal of alliance, and a low impulse indeed.

I think that this effort has some of the politicians running scared, just as it did when the women of the town started the Library back in 1906. You didn't want to cross them then and you SURE don't want to cross them now!

The women who were at the tea were either movers & shakers in their own right or wives thereof. Dorsey, for instance -- when the Chamber of Commerce decided to move out of Old Town she got pissed, bought a building, and is renting it to them for $100 per year (utilities not included). Dorsey was there. So was Jackie -- she came up to the microphone and said, "I'm Jackie and I'm addicted. To reading."

These are the women who are the iron fists in the velvet gloves, and the "city dads" now find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place, especially since the Mayor his own self told me to do a capital campaign.

So...if you're a member of the City Council, are you going to say, "No, we don't want the bookmobile and things you citizens have raised the money for" and risk being VERY unceremoniously hooted out of office?

"When you've got 'em by the balls their hearts and minds will follow."

But when you turn you back on books, normally you don't run the risk of being bitten.

But the situation COULD bite you in the arse - eventually. And will.

Consider these facts:

1. I don't work for the City, I work for the Board of Trustees. To fire me, the City would have to replace the entire Board and that ain't likely. Everyone else here is a City employee except me.

2. The City can't tell us how to spend the money raised to support the Library.

These are State laws, not something I made up. What are they going to do, put a contract out on me? I shoot back.

"What are they going to do, put a contract out on me? I shoot back."

That is exactly what Chongo would say. In fact he has said that. On several occasions. Numerous contracts have been put out on Chongo, by numerous saps too dumb enough to listen to some sensible advice.

You see, when I am Chongo's president he will have the Secret Service to protect him. They've got much better weaponry than even I have, so there will be no need for Chongo to pack heat. Besides, why would anyone want to harm a lovable chimp?

I am afraid you are mistaken, my dear Hawk. And I woudl have thought by now you would do your homework on etymological issues before calling me out.

1. Both spellings are frequently used in the phrase "presidential timber"
2. Timber is sometimes accepted as an alternate spelling of "timbre".
3. Timbre refers tothe quality of sound, usuallyin the context of an instrument's sound production qualities.
4. Timber refers to construction, wooden members above a certain size, the wood from which something can be built.

It is pretty obviosu the original phrase was not referring to the degree of bass overtones in a candidate's voice, but rather the degree to which he was sufficiently sturdy to stand up to the challenging task of Presidency.

Therefore, "timber" is probably the original word used in the expression. And even if it were not, the spelling is still acceptable.,

Thus I refute, rebut, reject, and return your objection to you as futile, facile, void, virtueless, inappropriate and inapplicable to the present circumstance, sirrah.

I happen to know for a certainty that Amos plans to cast his vote for Obama and Biden...not for Chongo Chimp and Rapaire.

That speaks for itself. Amos is a man of very poor judgement. A fatuous know-nothing. A pretentious, bully-ragging, blathering boob. He has also turned his back on an old friend, Rapaire, in order to rashly and foolishly endorse the Democratic Party...a corrupted old lying power structure about which one can say ONLY one thing...

"They're not as bad as the Republicans..."   ;-)

Well, that's not good enough for America! No sir. We need a brand new start here. That's why thinking people, monkeys, and apes in all walks of life know that there is only one real choice in this election: Chongo Chimp, Rapaire and the APP.

Let's put a REAL chimp in the White House this time, and a real MAN at his right hand!

Beautiful dreamer! Bold Little Hawk!
Dream-like the world of which you often talk!
Gibbons in Treasury, chimpanzees too,
Hamsters and Shatner--and none of it true!!

Beautiful dreamer!! Young Hawk so bold!
Is it that real life has proven too cold?
Frenzies of fancy, with dramas, and strife!
Little Hawk, please, won't you go get a life!!?

Chimps in the WHite House, drunkards in jail,
Fat lazy actors with faces grown pale.
Wonderland fancies, vivid and fine,
Not what you want in an untethered mind.

Little Hawk, Little Hawk, come down to earth,
Tune up your instrument, show us your worth,
Write a great novel, that makes us to feel,
At least one of your playmates will turn out to be real.
