Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Life Imitates Art Imitating Life, or, er...aw, who knows.

Via War Liberal and Weevil State University Dean of Library Sciences Mac Thomason, this interesting story from today's Birmingham News:
Suspended Chief Justice Roy Moore has formed a new legal defense fund with a $2 million capital campaign and the fund plans to build an institute to foster his crusade for displaying a Ten Commandments monument in a public building.

Moore's defense fund, an account once run by his lawyer, has morphed into the Foundation for Moral Law Inc., a Birmingham-based group formed by three close friends of the judge, including a pastor.

The group has raised thousands of dollars for Moore, and plans to build a two-story Christian institute to honor him in his home county of Etowah.

To help raise money, the foundation has offered electronic Ten Commandments clocks that play a commandment on the hour. The clocks sell for $19.99, plus $5.29 for shipping and handling. [...]
For any nice person we may have offended with our good-natured japes about selling polyresin 10 Commandments yard ornaments, or keychains, or decorative soaps bearing the likeness of Roy Moore, or any of the other fine line of Moorenumentals™, well, we weren't quite so far from the truth, I suppose, now were we?

(I wonder what happens the other two hours when there's not a commandment to quote?)
