There's no time for writing. I'm preparing Indian food for the MG
potluck. Here's something no one there has ever had. The common
Cotoneaster makes red-orange berries this time of year, and they're very
edible but bland. I found a chutney recipe with lots of interesting
flavorings like saffron and lovage seed, one requiring "mango or quince"
paste, and it's just the ticket. Jaffrey's broiled chicken recipe
doesn't have any seasonings in common with this south Indian chutney,
except for garlic and ginger of course, so the flavors will really
contrast. I'll have enough Cotoneaster Chutney Khasa to can some up.
Meanwhile I've finished the demo for the software to draw the new
extension office and its landscaping in 3-D.

I suppose one can always intone such things, but the facts are that it
doesn't fit the online discussion. As I recall, one person wrote
something like "let's paint some Republicans black by connecting them
with Free Trade" and I pointed out that things were not always so black
and white, since both Clinton and Kerry are knee-jerk lackies for Free
Trade as well. Then someone else reminded us that black is still black
and white is still white (Republicans are for big business and Democrats
are for the little people). If you examine it, it was only I who held
any grayish view at all.
If you mean that a politician suddenly goes from being a virgin to a
whore in my eyes, and once there can never redeem himself, I suppose
you're right. It's like that with any sort of liar. I can always ask,
"how do I know this sentence isn't also a lie?" Politicians are a dime
a dozen, so my attitude is just to get another one.
