What have you been smoking, Madame?

...and can I have some of it?

Oh, I know, we're in the middle of Holy Week and all. We should be charitable, meditative, and nice. But when someone guarantees an "economic miracle", well, you just have to wonder if they're high.

However, if you want a slightly more religious bent -- and we are still in the Lenten season -- here's a relevant passage:

Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and he said to Him, "All these things will I give You, if You fall down and worship me."

Then Jesus said to him, "Begone, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.'"


In other news, T-Bill rates are down again. Sigh.

  1. Very appropriate passage. A poster of it would be a nice Easter gift for Madame. :D

    Vida: thanks!

    UbuntuMama: the new shirts were made by Yolynne Medina. Try looking up her blog at http://yolynne.wordpress.com. I did print out Ubuntu shirts before, but I already ran out.
