Life, as we march ceaselessly toward the inevitable, but very regretable (for some) end of the semester, has been good, no, great for me lately. And I have one special person to thank, and I do, as often as I can... :-D Perfection is so hard to find, and I wasn't even trying to find it, but I know I did. LOL! :-)

Has anyone seen what Bruce Wayne has been up to recently?
Caped Crusader Saves the Day in English Town

LONDON (Reuters) - A masked and caped do-gooder has been sweeping through an English town, performing good deeds and scattering terrified bad guys, a local newspaper reported.

The Kent and Sussex Courier said Friday it had received letters from "stunned residents" of the town of Tunbridge Wells, southeast of London, who saw the man in a brown mask and cape scare off hooligans and return a woman's dropped purse.



Good thing I've always got my Buffy! ;-)

I so love this; I was truthfully thinking of writing something along these same lines:

English Sans French
A French-owned hotel innkeeping firm, Accor, has taken down the tricolor three-hued flag. In the House of Representatives Burghers, the chairman leader of the Committee Body on Administration Running Things has renamed named anew French fries "freedom fries" and French toast "freedom toast" in House restaurants eating rooms.

...


It is time for English-speaking peoples folk to throw off this cultural imperialism lording-it-over-others and declare say our linguistic freedom. It is time to purify clean the English language tongue. It will take some sacrifices hardship on everyone's part to get used to the new parlance speech. But think of the satisfaction warm feeling inside on the day we are all able to can all stare the Académie Française in the eye and say without fear of reprisal injury: "Sumer is icumen in...."


Nothing like a little linguistically-flavored satirical op/ed.
