The meanest action

Lately I've been reading a good bit by and about Ralph Waldo Emerson. This little passage from his journals reminds me a bit of the mess going on now in the US House of Representatives:

'Tis a matter of certainty that the base side will win. My rule of political prophecy, is, to ascertain which is the worst party, & the meanest action, that is the thing which will be done and I am seldom disappointed...
That rule doesn't always hold, but it seems to be pretty robust in some circles anyway.

ABOUT THAT GIANT SQUID I mentioned the other day. There's some brief footage here. This thing has a pretty eye.

LOSING THEIR RELIGION. More Americans, especially young ones, are.
