The Random Comic Strip

The Random Comic Strip

Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

There'll Be Some Changes Made...


For there's a change in the weather
There's a change in the sea
So from now on there'll be a change in me
My walk will be diff'rent my talk and my name
Nothin' about me is goin' to be the same,
I'm goin' to change my way of livin' if that ain't enough,
Then I'll change the way that I strut my stuff,
'cause nobody wants you when you're old and gray
There'll be some change made.


(extra points for recognizing the song and, no, I won't be changing my name or the name of the blog)

I am contemplating some changes around here. After all, I have been posting since October 7, 2008. And I am getting bored. Oh, I've made a few cosmetic changes over the years and altered the daily posting a wee bit but, overall, the blog has retained its charming, yet tedious, boring make-up. I suspect that is my doing.... since I am the same boring, yet tedious, moron I have always been.

What the changes will be and how they are done, I have yet to determine.

Speaking of morons, I have been having some difficulty with the folks who send me the daily comic strips. Some are missing and some are out of sequence. I reported it. But they checked online (their website) and found no problem. The only way they could have seen no problem is looking online as me (which they did). Of course, that's the standard by which I realized that the emailed strips did not match the ones shown online. And that is what I reported.

I also found that I had several logins and various associated passwords for the site. I am a little afraid to ask them to delete any for fear of losing them all.

I expect this will continue for some time.

Listen, I'm OK with your blog; don't change on account of me.

Joanne, great! A lady who doesn't mind being bored. The changes will be minor, perhaps a little more politics, perhaps shorter posts, but changes nonetheless because I am getting a little bored.

Just don't change your sometimes cynical but reliably cleared-eyed take on the world -- and your sharp-edged point of view that I don't always agree with but do always appreciate.

Sometimes cynical???
