Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Two things:

  1. The politicians are looking for a new catch-phrase.  We had "Don't play the blame-game" for Iraq; you can see them searching for a new "Don't cut off my balls" phrase.  Any suggestions?

  2.  I just came from a REAL market - the Sacramento Farmer's Market.  White potatoes sell for 50 cents a pound in the grocery store.  I see a farmer's stall with bagged potatoes; I ask the vendor, "How much?  She says she has 2 and 5 pound bags.  I ask (quite tersely), "Price per pound?"  See replies "One dollar." and I walk away with my money.  There's a MARKET!


They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
