Perfect Is The Enemy Of Better

Getting tired of bailouts and gloom and doom and we gotta fix this and we gotta fix that? Tired of weenies that scream when they see the word "peanut"? Tired of blue ribbons for everyone and the death of first place? Me too. So is Orson Bean over at Big Hollywood:
“What puts the musk in muskrat? Courage!” Thus sings the great Bert Lahr in THE WIZARD OF OZ. Courage. In what short supply is this emotion in our country today. My wife and I just finished watching the HBO miniseries JOHN ADAMS. How brave our founding fathers were. And their fellow colonists as well. Children were not coddled. They learned at their parents’ knees that life was hardscrabble and nothing came easy. Freedom was worth fighting for. Divine Providence was what they relied on, but they knew that God demanded that they do their parts. No sense of entitlement, just hard work, struggle and fighting for what you wanted. And if it didn’t come, no whining, just rolling up of sleeves and starting over.
Life's tough, wear a cup.
