Made up Worlds

Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

While some people have virtually recreated foreign countries for us – even those that don’t hand out visas, it has come to our attention that Lonely Planet has been faking it. Fake trips to real countries. Sigh. :(

PS: Veena, you were on to a good thing there

will you people please stop this “past is a foreign land” business? I switched to C-Span last night – yes, I watch C-Span – and some writer-historian was on and the first sentence from his lips? “The past is a foreign land”.

SB: yes, 48 hours in London, Barcelona or wherever else her decadent life takes her…

will you people please stop this “past is a foreign land” business?

KM: Scary how popular it is. “The past is a foreign country” — is the title of 2 books (or more?)..

all I am saying is, this is going to be one long arduous battle

OT, you read Savage’s column and watch C-Span. hmm… verrrry interesting life.

BM: Decadent! Don’t get me started ok?

Okay, just so all of you know, km has to do that post; not me. I never suggested that the past was a foreign country. I just said that if it were, that would account for the number of illegal aliens around.

BM: And I edged around that only on his weather report post. :D

well, I never liked Rick Santorum ;)

Santorum. wow!

And I thought I had left those days behind, when the senator from PA would go “I am Nick Santorum, and I approve this message” after every hideous political ad on basic cable.

Btw, if you happen to be in PA, around Philly, Colbert is doing his show from there this week. Just saying.
