Harold Strachan's Last Word

Flying footwear II

Flying footwear II

Good manners are the destruction of too much pressure on this miserable ball of planetary mud.

Well all right, okay, I am one of those. I think it was a good idea to throw one’s shoe at President Bush. Just a pity there wasn’t a half-brick lying around. It’s not easy to aim a shoe, but the president had to duck this one, so his dignity was dented and I suppose that’s enough, one shouldn’t be greedy.

S'easy, Harold. We'll sommer invent another bubble.
Trick is to get in early. Say . . . Education futures. That'll sell.
Every man woman and child buys one on a 20yr plan, we start re-selling them - you know, smoke n mirrors.
Capitalism will triumph over the collapse of capitalism.
'Til next time . . .

People will ALWAYS believe a good bulldust over the truth.
Every time.
