Sinatra's "My Way" feat. George Bush

Will it be better for us when
we dissolve into the ground? Or worse?

Let's learn now - what will happen:
This is lovers' work - to break through
And become the earth - to die before we die.

Don't think of pairing-up somehow with God!
That claim is a religious self-indulgence.

You know it by the smell:
Smoke coming off dried dung...
is different from that of aloe wood!
The Presence - at one second, is soil,
then water, fire, smoke, woof, warp - a friend...

And is too vast - and intimate
for partnership!

Observers watch - as Presence
takes thousands of forms.

But inside your eyes - the Presence
doesn't brighten or dim.

It just lives there.

A mystic can see the tree of heaven -
Its fruit hanging so close...

- Rumi, Ghazal 941

The Sneeze's "Steve, Don't Eat It!"

The whole blog is pretty good, but this section is just damn gross/funny.

To me the war on drugs is by far the biggest issue. Where do the candidates stand on war on drugs?

Cuban exile Carlos Alberto Montaner, writing in August 2004, describes Castro's quest to breed a tiny cow that Cubans could keep in their apartments for milk: http://www.firmaspress.com/407.htm

"The creature will provide anywhere from 6.4 to 7.4 quarts of milk a day, and it will be possible to milk her with one hand and applaud with the other, a trick that's always healthy in that type of regime."
