Deck us all with Boston Charlie

The next post in the current series is a pretty important one, so I'm going to hold off until people are likely to have time for such serious endeavors. Meanwhile, I expect to be disconnected from Your Intertubes for a couple of days, so look for me again on Sunday or thereabouts. (And whether or not I post here on Sundays, you can check out my regular Sunday post on Iraq Today. No, the war is not over and we haven't won.)

And, this is a good time for lurkers to come out! I know you're reading, so go ahead and leave a comment and let us know what you think. Even if you think I'm full of crap. I've been doing this for a few years now and let me tell you, it's a lot more fulfilling when people react.

For those of you too young to know about Pogo, you were born too late. It was Pogo who first said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

And, he gave us the world's most beloved Christmas Carol.

Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla, Wash., an' Kalamazoo!
Nora's freezin' on the trolley,
Swaller dollar cauliflower alley-garoo!

Don't we know archaic barrel,
Lullaby Lilla boy, Louisville Lou?
Trolley Molly don't love Harold,
Boola boola Pensacoola hullabaloo!

Bark us all bow-wows of folly,
Polly wolly cracker n' too-da-loo!
Hunky Dory's pop is lolly gaggin' on the wagon,
Willy, folly go through!

Donkey Bonny brays a carol,
Antelope Cantaloup, 'lope with you!
Chollie's collie barks at Barrow,
Harum scarum five alarum bung-a-loo!

Merry Crispness!

Thanks for all the posts. I don't comment often but have been reading for a couple of years now, and don't think I've missed very many of your posts. I consider this blog one of my most reliable and interesting sources (and certainly the most reliable and interesting on health policy)
Best, Nosmo

What Bix & anonymous said.

You're on my short list in a universe with many great blogs.

And thanks for the reminder that Walt Kelly remains the Shakespeare of comic strips.
