In the interest of equal time, we might note: “You can fool some of the people all the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on.” -George W. Bush Also instructive: there is no evidence linking the above quote to either Lincoln or P.T.Barnum, to whom it is also often attributed. All of us are fooled some of the time.

Some people have better things to do with their lives than walking the dog. Some don't.

^^^ Heh. Sounds like Bukowski was cribbing from William Butler Yeats (The Second Coming): " The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity."

"Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not going to make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. Cause if you lose your head and give up you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is.". Josey Wales

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
