"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to abundance of those who have much; it is if we provide enough for those who have too little."
(Franklin D. Roosevelt)

 "If by a Liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a 'Liberal,' then I'm proud to say I'm a Liberal.” ( John F. Kennedy)

I have no words for the senseless and brutal events at the Boston Marathon yesterday....except welcome to the new normal. Welcome to the constant possibility that some cowardly fool will pack a backpack full of explosives, ball bearings, fish hooks...whatever will injury and maim as many innocents as possible and slip it amongst the largest crowd he / she / they can find. Unfortunately, we now know what it is like to live in Israeli, under the constant fear of the next terrorist act.

Although it may be wise to plug in some throwaways that you will be more than willing to cut in negotiations.... but....raising the minimum wage, funding "no child left behind" and raising cigarette taxes by a dollar a pack? Boehner must be turning three shades of red (from his usual burnt orange). At least they submitted a budget, but this one won't even be considered by the conservatives...gridlock anyone?

I can't think of a more universal credo for the world today than the picture taken above from our friends at Nike. Winning takes care of conscience, no morality.....the perfect slogan from the company who advised you to "Just Do It."
Tiger steps out on your wife and in doing so ruins his marriage, he causes her prolonged emotional pain as each day a new woman steps forward with carnal knowledge of her problem, go win a golf tournament and everything will be OK.
Just keep saying it, TW..."winning takes care of everything" when your kids come home from school in tears and tells you another kid at school made fun of them because their father stepped out with every stripper/ slut / cocktail waitress and bar hag you could get your hands on......just tell them "don't cry children, Daddy's going to win the John Deere Open for you next week and everything will be alright."
I can't believe the unmitigated gall of Woods, who no doubt signed off on it, and Nike for coming up with the slogan. You know what takes care of everything, Tiger? Being a man. You should try it sometime.
And that's the world...the "World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.
