eisenhower waited out the june weather and came out a bit better for his patience. i suppose, irons being what they are, hot is hot. but it seems today less whether time might be right, but rather which star might be chosen to follow. considering the castrated and classically malapropped ovine leader, (wouldn't "belleweather" be just another sunny day?), and how dutifully the flock can be counted upon to follow regardless of the risk, i'm thinking that we choose our wethers at our peril.
some might be inclined to offer sympathy for a perceived "plight", (and some might be inclined to continue to see themselves in one), but clearer eyes must see more of the truth. the way i see it, freedom didn't need to be stopped in the same way that oppression did, and karma seems to have found its usual way to making the distinction. substitute faith (and faithfulness) and deception, and my last few years come into clearer focus.
