Charlie Little: O, happy day

November 20, 2012 

O, happy day

I’ve been in the doldrums lately, listening to people who actually think taking more money from citizens is the path to prosperity, while others are convinced they have free health care the rest of their life; many of my buddies are stocking up on guns and ammo; Israel is preparing to go to war; Iran is still working on the bomb; generals’ sex lives are in the news and our president is trying to convince us a video caused an attack on our embassy.

I feel better today. PETA was able to convince a judge that lowering a possum to assist in celebrating a new year before you feed and release him is cruel, but it’s OK to shoot him and lower his carcass.

We’re on our way back.
