Double standard.

2013/07/17

    “So she’s all over the place. She’s driving on the wrong side of the road. She goes up on the curb. She going over here and going over there. It’s crazy.  And he says, ‘What are you doing?’  And she says, ‘I don’t know.’  She told him the truth. The truth ends any conversation.” –Jerry Seinfeld

Here’s last Friday night’s (2013-07-12) Memo Of the Air show on KNYO-LP, ready to listen to right away and/or download and keep for free.

And here are some things to look at and/or listen to and/or think about, that I found mostly thanks to the great little websites to your right:

“When you’re in the sprawling middle-end of an empire, which you are –which statistically it’s most likely for anyone to be in– it seems to you as though it’s always been there and always will be. But it hasn’t and it won’t, whether you know this or you don’t. It expands to an unreasonable extent, hovers for a blink in geological time, running frantically on thin air like the Coyote who has fooled himself out over the edge of a cliff, looks down (!) and then falls.”
