"... We are at the end of the beginning, the hard work starts now ..."
(from President Obama's speech on October 20, 2009)

"An' here I sit so patiently
Waiting to find out what price
You have to pay to get out of
Going through all these things twice

Oh, Mama, can this really be the end
To be stuck inside of Mobile
With the Memphis blues again"

(Bob Dylan)


"What science finds to be nonexistent, we must accept as nonexistent, but what science merely does not find is a completely different matter.

... It is quite clear that there are many, many, mysterious things."

(Dalai Lama)


"Om, Mama, can this really be the end?"
(Margaret Hibbing aka Oboe)

I'm assuming you're referring to the Administration's attack on Fox News so forgive me if I'm off track.

Just read about it in the French press and while anybody can sympathize with the urge to swat back at the mosquitos, it is not a good idea to hand political mosquitos the advantage. Now's the time for slow breathing and concentrating on that Peace Prize, yes? There are so many better ways to use some of the negativity to the Administration's advantage.

(as I said, if I'm off topic, my apologies.)

best to you (and Oboe) :-)

I was still working on the post when you read it. There's a new version up now.

I was referring to President Obama's comment:

"... We are at the end of the beginning, the hard works starts now ..."

This morning I was thinking about "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues again" and suddenly heard the chorus as, "Obama, can this really be the end?"

I agree that it's not a good idea to hand the political mosquitos the advantage. In his own peculiar way, Bob seems to have perfected a comedic lyrical method for deflecting mosquitos and lions, but then he's not the President of the United States (-:

As always, thanks for reading my blog and commenting!
