Lighthouse

Lighthouse, n. A tall building in which the government maintains a lamp and the friend of a politician.

2005 Update: A state-owned source of illumination with a narrow beam that spins. The precursor to homeland security. Valued mainly by those at sea.

Weirsdo, I think that's a fair diagnosis.

Gabriel, I think I missed the lighthouse phobia. Explain?

Sunil, yes, yes, I agree, I agree. Now if they could do something about the microphone stands.

Thanks, spiritdancer. I like the new picture.
