And it's about time, insert winking emoticon here.

I like the Cola War Memorial, too.

The Onion is the MAD of today.

Speaking of Mad Mag...hubby Mudcat saved all his, and he still has the '62 mag with Kennedy artwork on the front cover, and Nixon artwork on the back cover, proclaiming them both the winner, since the mag came out a few days before the election, and they didn't know who would win.

Any one want to buy a bunch of old Mad magazines from the '60's?

Mudkitty, your hubby should try eBay. Seriously. If those mags are in good condition you may be talking about a nice chunk of change there.

It would be hilarious were it not for the reality of what is happening at management level in many different community orgs. People who are extremely right wing who don't believe in radical politics are often being brought in because funders are telling orgs that they have to be run more like capitalist business, that they have to be more fiscally responsible. The answer? Find a managerial type who is looking to be top dog somewhere, anywhere. They'll "whip" the organization into shape, even if the goals of the org start shifting right. Who cares? The org is now fiscally responsible with a good, solid paper trail the funders can relate to. Sad. Scary.

Are you thinking of one in particular?

Well this shows equality in the workplace in its truest form.

Lets hope this person proves there worth and does a good job.
