They Like Us! They Don’t Really Like Us!

George Jonas:

To look at his words and policies in the kindest possible light, Mr. Obama wants America to be liked rather than feared. The trouble is, given his country’s current place in the scheme of things, he can only make gains in his second quest, without coming a step closer to the first. Changing his country’s image from “Big Satan the omnipotent” to “Big Satan the impotent” is readily available to him, but it’s hardly in the national interest.

Ah, but America is liked better by the right kind of Americans, and that’s really all that counts.

Totally off-topic, but look for extra typos today. I have what looks to me like a tear on the surface of my right eye (what’s that called again?), so I’ve put a patch over my right eye to keep it closed and protected until I can get in to see the eye doctor later today.

Meanwhile, the joke I’ve made for a quarter century now turns out to be true. “It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an eye. And then it’s fun and games without depth perception.”

Dayamn. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Twice, no less. Right eye both times.

Last time was in the middle of grad school. Finals week. Couldn't see for a week, because the glare was so incredibly painful.

It'll heal, but I've had problems with dry-eye every so often since then. I'll wake up and it feels like my right eye has sand stuck in it. I have to sit in the shower for about half-an-hour before I'm comfortable enough to face reality.

Good luck. I'd say it beats a stick in the eye, but that'd be cruel.... ;-)

The way I heard it was... "It's all fun and games till someone looses and eye. Then it's really 'effin funny."

Good luck w/ the eye. I got an infection in May that nearly cost me my right eye. It's never gonna get better than 20% anymore.
