To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Blazers Win!

Portland beat another good team tonight for its sixteenth win of this young season. Oklahoma City fell by seven at the Moda Center, which used to be called the Rose Garden.

You see, Rose Garden wasn't a corporate enough sounding name--so Moda it is.  Moda is an HMO, which is good to know in case the Blazers start losing again and everybody gets sick of them.

I guess I'm a fair weather fan, rather enjoying watching the victories pile up.  But I reserve the right to jump off the bandwagon at any time.
