Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    TV Worth Watching

    If you haven't seen "Extreme Makeover Home Edition", this is a show worth watching. It's on at 7 pm Central Time on ABC, and the show is absolutely beautiful. Families are selected by the show's producers as being "worthy" of getting some help. Typically, they are families who have suffered some tragedy and/or are the types of people who give of themselves tirelessly. The crew shows up, in many cases completely demolishes the house, and rebuilds it for the family's needs. The show is just one giant promotion of philanthropy, and on this basis alone everyone should be watching it. It beats the crap out of the latest "humiliate yourself for cash" sludge being shoveled out.
