Yes, we have volcanoes


“Three of my grandchildren are your subjects. Can you ask a better assurance?”

Those were the words of Baron T., intended to reassure and mislead M. at the same time.
At this point in the story you can'y trust anybody. Alliances have shifted in the past few days and will undoubtedly shift again as people weigh their estimations of who will triumph. Who doesn't want to be on the winning side?

Btw, congresscritters, if you support a public option for health care you will - with the American People - come out on the winning side. Just saying. Your HMO-Pharma overlords may pay you well and fund your campaigns but they do not cast ballots every two or six years. Remember that.

The photo above is of the volcanoes on the edge of town. They are like the Sandias, defining the city only on the west rather than the east and MUCH more subtle. After all, the Sandias rise 5000 feet at the edge of Albuquerque. Not subtle. Spectacular.

I love los volcanes too.

I think I have a fix on which armies are where for the next fictional week. Most of them, anyway.

Sweet dreams, my giggling goldfinches.

Paul, is your latest story a metaphorical depiction of the dissidents in the Anglican Communion?

Or of the Congress critters?

Or of life?

Well, I did what I could with the Congress critters. Spector has moved to the right side. Perhaps more Democrats will lift a finger to the wind to see which way it blows.

LOL. Well, Mimi, when I wrote it I thought it was of broad general application... and you found several applications immediately!

Hang in there, love, you are one of the great warmaidens (on behalf of peace) in our time!
