down will come cradle, catsy and all

I guess Postum is extinct now?  Sad face emoji, it was my coffee substitute of choice.  I tried Pero and it just wasn't the same.  But that was long ago, so maybe I should give it another chance.  Today I bought a jar of a German something or other that looked Postum-y, and it's pretty good.  Do people outside of Utah drink coffee substitutes?

Mittens isn't going to run for president after all, so there goes my awesome comic idea.  I hope he's happy--if that's not a prime example of the 1% ignoring the needs of the 99% I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.  Speaking of comics, may I tell you something?  Kate Beaton is a comedic genius, and I adore her style.  This is one of my favorites.  There is something about olde-tymey subject matter juxtaposed with modern dialogue that slays me every time.

I don't really know how to feel about the press conference the LDS church held the other day.  There were some nice sentiments voiced, but also a number of what seemed to me to be fairly disingenuous statements.  There's a lot of very unpleasant water running under that bridge.  For me it raised as many questions as it answered, and I was sorry they didn't stream the question and answer portion, since that would probably have been a little less scripted.  And I would like to state here my opinion that apologies are a good thing.  When you've hurt someone, whether you meant to or not, you should say you're sorry.  It's what decent people (and institutions) do.
