A little clarification on yesterday's post and photo:
in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer yesterday there was
an article (which included a photo much like the one below)
on the Boeing-topic-of-the-day, namely,
the perceived theft of the current mega-contract,
which will dump about 15,000 new jobs into the
Alabama econony. Now, I'm not exactly sure what
the Azalea Trail Maids have to do with all this, other than
the fact that Azalea Trail Maids are an Alabama product,
but I'm sure that a photo-editor at the PI giggled him/herself
silly when stumbling upon this very colorful photo.
As did I.

he was singing it, and reciting the words to me.
Don't ask why, because I don't know.)
