Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Shop AMAZON*
The "ineffable experience of redness" aside, it's more likely that we're in the process of being F'ed by statist pinkos.
You look good in green.
Althouse goes psychedelic. Interesting how the effect appears to knock 30 years off your age.
We have an Eastern Red Cedar about three feet from one of our windows. Just now, there was a flock of robins eating its “berries” and I watched them for about twenty minutes as I sat cross-legged on the floor. Mrs. Bissage watched for a while, too, and so did one of the cats who got bored and then fell asleep in my lap. Perhaps he was contemplating his consciousness but I doubt it.There was an icy glaze on the branches and the sun was breaking through the gloom and the ice was melting and I found the scene all rather pleasant and comforting on this, the first day of winter. It was a scene very much unlike my internal deliberations on the topic of free will, which have consistently for more than three decades left me in an agitated state even less pleasant than the one in which I began.This said, I am very glad to be reminded once again that Professor Althouse and her sons enjoy spending time with one another.Happy Winter Solstice everybody!
Bright Lights, Sleepy CityShe was hot chartreuse in the cobalt cafeWhere the clock on the wall was red;Outside all was muffled and shadowed and grey:Winter's green light to go back to bed.

You're all green. I knew you were projecting about Favreau!;)
