Don't know what that says about me, but I never chose a dog or cat in my life, they always chose me. I had absolutely no say in this.
As to politicians, I better keep my mouth shut, but I agree with Merriam.

I love the last one. I swear,if some guy fell off the Empire State building and survived,our media and a lot of other people would make him into a perfect presidential candidate.Who cares what the qualifications might be..being famous is IT these days. Look at the reality shows for proof of that.

RE: Quote 10-19-10

Oh, hold me back re politicians. I have to remember that this is a garden party, tea and crumpets has a place.

Charles Edward Merriam, Jr. died in 1953. Nothing has changed in politics, just we have more media to spread the drama.
