    "It was a time of gloom in the country among social and political liberals, who saw the carefully built but still incomplete structure of the Kennedy-Johnson extension of the New Deal undermined by the Nixon administration. The antipoverty program was being whittled away; racial justice was impeded by benign—and not so benign—neglect; efforts to move forward in health and housing were frustrated."

    And then Congress adjourned and everybody got on their yachts and knocked back a couple highballs.

    "In the second dynasty of Tilantongo, the codices have much to tell about a great warlord named 8 Deer "Jaguar Claw," who lived during the Calendar Round which began in AD 1063 and ended in 1115. When he rose to power, he attacked a town known as Red and White Bundle, located to the east of Tilantongo, sacrificing both the lord of that place and (somewhat unchivalrously) his wife Lady 6 Monkey, who had been princess of Mountain of the Place of Sand."

    Who then migrated to the Asian subcontinent, changed his name to 1 Dog Millionaire and proceeded to the Lightning Round. Or something like that.

    "Card games are the foremost indoor recreation where parents and children can meet on a common ground of interest, without a feeling on the part of the children that parents are merely pretending interest in the juvenile toys. Many parents have found that card games, with their rules and their etiquette, are a powerful force in weaning children away from the "Me first!" and "That's mine!" and "I want it all!" of infancy."

    Um, Nintendo on line seven...

    Luis Alvarez walked into my office looking as though he was ready for a fight. "Rich, I just got a crazy paper from Raup and Sepkoski. The say that great catastrophes occur on the Earth every 26 million years, like clockwork. It's ridiculous."

    "As an example of a third-brush-regulated Delco motor-generator we will use the Delco electric system on one of the first models of the Hudson "Super-Six" cars, models "H" (1916-17) and model "J" (1918). The Hudson "Super-Six" was produced after the Hudson "6-40" which used a variable resistance regulation which was cut into the field winding automatically by a governor."

    Owners of the Hudson "Adequate-Six" aren't gonna like this.
