Your contrasting couplets are so sobering, GW. But this is the first time I've heard that politicians actually lie... say it isn't so! Great write, and congrats on your win ~ JW

Life goes on and on. You convey the inevitability with an underlying feeling of sardonic acceptance. Nice one Gershon.

Bombs away; we shrug. As long as it doesn't touch us... Such is the malleable mind of man --- except for the saints maybe... Thanks, Geoffrey
