How long has the shopping cart sat there upended in the creek in front of the Cultural Village or Fallbrook Old Town or whatever they are calling it these days, two months, three months?
Maybe I will bring my better camera down and create a new Fallbrook post card, pitch it to the Chamber?
I see a small egret down there from time to time in the rainy season.
Hope he doesn't get tetanus from that rusty old thing.
Who is responsible for maintaining our riparian areas?
Ross Douthat has a well written opinion about what happens to Republicanism after Trump at the NYT today.
But his conclusions are not what stuck with me after reading the piece, it was his use of the word perfervid.
I looked at it with wonder. Was it a typo? Editing has gotten so ghastly even at the hallowed Times. What's a perfervid, a fervid pervert? Is it even a word? I looked it up. It is a word allright, means intense and impassioned.
Well, that's a new one on me. Frankly, I wouldn't have the guts to use a word like that, even me. Why not say intense and impassioned unless the point of course, is showing off your fancy new twenty dollar word? How sesquipedalian of old Ross...
