Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

vamrat- Don't fret. You have access to the Great Platypus via the Salamander, which is obviously a win. And speaking of wins:




Liza FTW!
O Virgin pure, immaculate, O Lady Theotokos
Rejoice, O unwedded Bride!
O fleece bedewed with every grace, O Virgin Queen and Mother
Rejoice, O unwedded Bride!

Yes, that picture is so full of win it must be ASME rated at 150#.  Anything less and it would burst.

Probably one of my favorite 20th Century leaders, and by far my favorite African leader.  As for 20th Century leaders, HIM is by and far the best dressed - the only political figure who rivals him would have to be Mussolini.  But even here in the important realm of political-leader-fashion, just as in war, Il Duce just comes in at second place.

I had to look where you live.  That looks almost exactly like a shot that I took over Lake Michigan in the mid-80's.  Very pretty.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.
