Ironically, that was a rather short post. I guess it depends on how you use it. Thanks for the early munin' laugh.

I only read the Pavilion for the articles,

Awesome quote of the day

"When you read it you seem to be listening to a lively and aggressive and oracular speech delivered in an unknown tongue, a speech whose spirit you get but not the particulars; or, to change the figure, you seem to be listening to a vigorous instrument which is making a noise which it thinks is a tune, but which, to persons not members of the band, is only the martial tooting of a trombone, and merely stirs the soul through the noise, but does not convey a meaning."

This sums up how I feel when watching FOX news, or reading conservative blogs, lately.

-Keith

Anyone care to guess from whence the quote originates?

God I love this month. This weekend we break the decorations out and turn the front yard into a cemetery.

I was gonna say Twain, but I too must go with Marceau.

Hey, if anyone here loves HOMICIDE like I do, a new, complete series collection is being released later this month for less than 150 bucks.

Mongo use words... Mongo do Google search

I was curious to read the original post behind the quote, "words are a primitive medium" so I did a search on the phrase. It shows up on only two sites: Harlan's (in this very discussion) and the blog of "Ren & Stimpy" creator John Kricfalusi, so I'm going to assume that Ryan originally read it there. Ryan, correct me if I am mistaken.

To those with strong opinions on the matter, and specifically the author's intent, I commend the originals to you. I found them to be far more thoughtful than I anticipated.

The quote appears in a reader comment for this related post:

That sounds like something I read of Twain's when he was talking about Christian Science. Someone (Dawkins ? Hitchens ? ) was quoting it.
