Ten sayings from Zen master Pogo

  1. A possum must be himself, and being himself he is honest.
  2. There’s no easy quick way out, we’re gonna have to live through our whole lives, win, lose, or draw.
  3. Sometimes I don’t always follow you and sometimes I’m not that lucky.
  4. Twenty Percent of Zero is Better than Nothing.
  5. Romeo wasn’t bilked in a day.
  6. Food for thought is no substitute for the real thing.
  7. Don’t believe something just because you didn’t read it in the papers. Wait until you haven’t seen it on television.
  8. Now is the time for all good men to come to.
  9. In like a dimwit, out like a light.
  10. We are confronted with insurmountable opportunities.

BTW, On vacation for awhile… enjoy.


Headline of the day: Teacher OK after crashing into bear on a bicycle

How the bear got onto the bicycle, I’ll never know.

cf: Marx, Groucho: “I once shot an elephant in my pajamas.”

I am chagrined to see that this is my first ever Groucho reference here at Collateral Damage. I apologize to my readers and promise to do better in the future.

PS:  Walt Kelly’s birthday was last month and I forgot to mention it. Again, my apologies. Why is it this book title never goes out of date?
