The Greatest Love Of All

Nick at Jefferson Mammoth has this item from the AFP on a little known fact regarding the recent wedding of Rep. Rick Boucher.

I was unaware that, even though the overwhelming majority of us weren't invited to the ceremony, we did, in a small way, all chip in for a gift. Or at least an earmark for the Virginia Creeper Trail (which, as Jerry notes, isn't exactly a favorite among its neighbors these days).

That's a lot of thank you notes for someone to write.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
