I Love Irony

Just read the S. F. Chronicle "Grabbers; A Selection of First Sentences From New Books."  One that caught my eye was "There is hardly anything more natural than hating Nature."  In my line of work, that sort of sentiment gets my attention!  It's the opening line in a novel by Milen Ruskov titled Thrown Into Nature.  I read several reviews and I think I need to get this novel.  It appeals to my sense of humor.  Reminds me of a favorite quote from Lily Tomlin: "No matter how cynical I get, I can't keep up."  Maybe I'm in this mood because of watching excerpts from last night's Republican debate.

  1. Joe,
    Reminded me of another great Lily Tomlin quote... "Even if you win the rat race, you're still a rat."
