Friday Memorial Quote & Catblogging

From The Last Starfighter:

Death is a primitive concept. I prefer to think of them as battling evil, in another dimension.


Dedicated to fourlegsgood and his dear departed plushy best friend, Lion Kitty Maxx, who joins the great celestial pantheon of Best Kitties Ever, along with…


…La Belle Eek…


…and The Shadowy And Mysterious Codename F.

I miss them all very much.

Buyer’s Remorse

How’s that decision to back Lieberman workin’ out for ya?

Making his umpteenth pitch to Congress to provide more security money for New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg stated the obvious when he said that money to defend against terrorism should be divvied up based on an assessment of risks, not “spread across the country like peanut butter.” After all, his testimony to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee echoed one of the key recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. The mayor estimated that more than $3 billion had been distributed in this lunatic way to date.

Unfortunately, the committee’s incoming chairman, Senator Joseph Lieberman, is partial to peanut butter. Mr. Lieberman, who won re-election last November as an independent with help from Mr. Bloomberg, continues to believe that every state, regardless of the risks or threats it faces, should be getting antiterrorism money. In negotiations with the House, Mr. Lieberman is seeking a “compromise” formula that preserves guaranteed minimums for relatively low-risk places like his home state of Connecticut. The minimums he wants well exceed the financing favored by the House, and cannot be justified on the basis of national security.

(…)

Mr. Lieberman fought the odds, held his seat and got this chairmanship. Now it’s up to him to use the power responsibly.

Right. “Lieberman” and “responsibly” in the same sentence. On the other hand, maybe Joe just wants to make sure the Groton sub base has adequate protection. He just loves that sub base.

I hope you’re pleased with your moderate, bipartisan, serious buddy, Mr. Bloomberg.

Friday Quote & Cat Blogging

This week’s quote is from The Rage: Carrie 2:

Sometimes my thoughts assume the form of a giant insect.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s cats…


The shadowy and mysterious Codename B, of course.
