These beautiful photos lifted my spirits! Wonderful dogs.

I started to read Charles Krauthammer's new book, "Things That Matter." I can't get past the first paragraph, in which he writes of 'the innocence of dogs.'

They are most certainly not innocent! Ours dig holes all over the yard in their vain quest for gophers. They steal food from the counter if we turn our backs. They will defeat every countermeasure we use in order to toss our garbage bins.

Guilt-free, maybe. Innocent? Hardly.

Is the one in the top pic a Nova Scotial Duck Toller?

Meade said...

Looks like one but I think she's a golden mix. Fast as all get out.

"I think I should indicate why I am here In Birmingham, since you have been influenced by the view which argues against "outsiders coming in." I have the honor of serving as president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization operating in every southern state, with headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. We have some eighty-five affiliated organizations across the South, and one of them is the Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights. Frequently we share staff, educational and financial resources with our affiliates. Several months ago the affiliate here in Birmingham asked us to be on call to engage in a nonviolent direct-action program if such were deemed necessary. We readily consented, and when the hour came we lived up to our promise. So I, along with several members of my staff, am here because I was invited here I am here because I have organizational ties here.

But more basically, I am in Birmingham because injustice is here. Just as the prophets of the eighth century B.C. left their villages and carried their "thus saith the Lord" far beyond the boundaries of their home towns, and just as the Apostle Paul left his village of Tarsus and carried the gospel of Jesus Christ to the far corners of the Greco-Roman world, so am I compelled to carry the gospel of freedom beyond my own home town. Like Paul, I must constantly respond to the Macedonian call for aid.

Moreover, I am cognizant of the interrelatedness of all communities and states. I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial "outside agitator" idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds."

Madison, more than most any, but the worst, needs Sarah Palin back, this timed welcomed as if Madison were a proud democracy, of, by, for, the people of America, and nothing less.

Ah to be young and frisky. Dogs remind us of the way we geezers were.

I named Barnett after the great Dean Barnett.

Soxblog.

Hosted for Hewett and had on Andy Sullivan.

Sully was funny because he couldn't believe how thick Dean's Boston accent was.

Dean Barnett was a great man who lived a life.

You ain't be understanding, but understanding it be us all.
