Come in! Come in!
"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

It's Elementary, my dears
So, I'm keeping it light and fun today. Sorta. Kinda. Maybe.
Well, I'm going to try, anyway.
I love these graphs (thank you, Doug). I swear to God, we're becoming a nation of idiots. Everything is "dummied down," it seems to me, and there is nothing - not even the simplest thought - that can't be reduced to a spread sheet or graph form so we can "better understand".
It's like we're all back in Elementary School. "See Spot run."
Someone obviously shares my perspective and put these graphs together.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
Oh, and if you've got a minute, would you feed the fish? Scroll down a bit and look to the right side of the screen. If you "click" on the water, little pink dots will appear and the fish will go into a feeding frenzy. I usually feed them several times a day, but I fear I won't have a chance today. ;`)
Off I go, then, into the fray. We'll talk tomorrow. Promise.
