OLAF FUB SEZ: According to British author George Orwell (Eric Blair), who lived from 1903 to 1950, "Each generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it and wiser than the one that comes after it." . . .
ON THIS DAY -- In 1858, Theodore Roosevelt, who was sworn in as the 26th president of the United States in Buffalo following the death of President William McKinley, was born in New York. He was the first president to ride in an automobile (1902), to submerge in a submarine (1905) and fly in an airplane (1910). . . . .
Goblins and witches
Black cats galore
Dracula dripping with
Good natured gore.
Gorgeous and gruesome
Gloomy and graceful
Devils with pitchforks
Howling and shrieking
Short demons from hell
Oh no, not again
There goes the bell!
-- Diana Notaro
