Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Haiku Wednesday - Crabby

(Three very different and unrelated takes on the theme)


Today* I am one
Year away from Medicare
So - why be crabby?


The least happy dwarf
Living up to his name. Why 
So crabby, Grumpy?


Obama lets down
His base - AGAIN! - but can't get
Why we're so CRABBY!

* P.S. -- Jean Sebelius is now 145!

Join the fun!

Like your take on all three versions, especially Medicare. Speaks to me about what the future may behold and explains a lot about the political scene. Nicknames sometimes follow us on our journey...Grumpy is one of them. Enjoyed your post!

Happy Birthday!!

Nicely haiku-ed, my friend. You only get better with age. Something like a fine wine, yes?
