Response to Bertha Venation (Original post)

147. "Well...some men you just can't reach."

Paul Newman passed away about the same time I joined DU. His role in "Cool Hand Luke" had always been a favorite of mine and seemed to sum up a lot about the pointless but dogged attempts to flee the shackles of the Bush years...

As Luke shows us, we can try to make the best of what often is a lousy situation.
DU is THE place I come to for news, and solace.
Thanks Bertha for the thread.
And thanks as always to Skinner, Earl and the whole DU crew!
