I have to think that having the Palins in the White House would have made the Clinton years soooo boring.
Saw this comment about Homicide: Life on the Street on this LGM thread attributed to crime novelist Trevanian:
[P]retending that criminals are masterminds is a way to cover up the incompetence of police.
Useful to remember regarding our National Security State and the National Media as we approach the anniversary of 9/11 and lose our minds all over again about ISIL/ISIS.
I said this to a friend via text message:
“In your teens and twenties you think you’ll ‘grow-up’ and do important things. By your 30s and 40s you realize that “only” means being a good husband and father”.
That’s okay, right?*
*Said while watching relevant music videos from the 1990s and early 2000s and “120 Minutes” clips while drinking beers with the dog.
