Hmm. I prognosticate that His Honor will soon be making D. the subject of a fireside chat, in which he will profess respect for the naked (exposing [sorry] deficiencies in his wolf's woolgathering) philosopher, but suggest that his persistent naysaying is a bit of a cyn.

New pains. That's as certain as death and taxes.

Doug said...

Well, Terry, Diogenes thought civilization itself was a mistake so you can't blame him for doubting the importance of new leadership.

Amoeba, the job of a cynic is expectations management.

Icy, Homer was probably a beagle.

You betcha, Actonbell.

The return of Diogenes.
Saints be praised!
Orpheus' songs are already beginning to change.
But I remember the tunes of old that were sung before, and it's those songs of hope that must come to pass or else... a new song of change will begin to be sung.

"A very pretty adornment" indeed. It gives a lovely light. But it's just a small light in a sea of darkness. Everyone needs to step up, pay attention, care about others,, have patience, and shine their own light .
