Proud Owner of a Prius Who Appreciates Irony

So, In case you didn't already know....I own a Prius.
So just imagine how difficult it was for me the other day, when I drove onto my street and found my self bumper to bumper with a remote control Hummer car.

The kids piloting this little symbol of planetary destruction and ignorance sat on the side of the road, trying to move the Hummer out of the way. I reaaallllllllyyy wanted to show these kids what the future hopefully will symbolically look like and run right over that bad boy machine, right in front of their eyes.

Robert Frost Poem Discovered Tucked Away in a Book

I truly never just copy & paste, but I had to make an exception this time:

Weekend Edition Sunday, October 1, 2006 ยท In 1918, Robert Frost inscribed a handwritten poem in the cover of a friend's book. For 88 years, the work remained hidden from the world, until Robert Stilling, a graduate student in English at the University of Virginia, recently discovered it.
The poem is called "War Thoughts at Home" and was written in the cover of a book belonging to Frederic Melcher, a well-known American publisher and friend of Frost. That book was part of a large collection of materials related to Frost recently acquired by the university.

'War Thoughts at Home'
In this poem from 1918, Frost reflects on the fighting in Europe during World War I. At the direction of the Frost estate, only the first two stanzas appear here:

On the backside of the house
Where it wears no paint to the weather
And so shows most its age,
Suddenly blue jays rage
And flash in blue feather.
It is late in an afternoon
More grey with snow to fall
Than white with fallen snow
When it is blue jay and crow
Or no bird at all.
