The amount of public lying going on lately is unnerving, members. White House spokespeople deny electronic versions of themselves; Paris Hilton says she’s found god; the Iraq war is won, the Iraq war is lost; Gonzalez says Habeas Corpus is a constitutional fiction; the whole notion of ‘diet soda’. From the epic to the small scale, all that hogwash can make a member nuts. Suggestion: get some mooring this week by venerating that most basic of mechanical wonders, The Hinge. What would life be without devices that connect two solid objects for the purpose of allowing balanced rotation? Whether your variety is Counterflap, Flush, Security, Stormproof, Self-Closing, or Lift-off, meditate on hinged glory. After all, what’s revolution without rotation?
