Silly Saturday

Am inaugural meditation from Newsweek?

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

-- William Butler Yeats

Zany Leftist Danny Glover says that the Second Amendment was put into the Bill of Rights in order to protext slavery:

A five year-old Pennsylvania kindergarten girl has been suspended from school for threatening to shoot a classmate- with a pink Hello Kitty bubble gun.

The school termed the incident a "terroristic threat."

Only in England: a very polite graffiti artist has been convicted of scratching polite insults such as "very silly," "really wrong," and "arbitrary" into the paint of automobiles with a screwdriver. He blames a bad reaction to alcohol, antibiotics and prescription drugs.

The crown is asking 18,000 pounds ($29,000) in damages.

And a former Ohio high school teacher is suing her school district for discriminating against her because she has a pathological fear of children.
